    Did you not read SIXTO's comment when he closed it?

    If you had posted it in Off Topic & Humor, maybe. It didn't belong in the News section. That is for self defense related news.

    Ok, sorry, yes I read them, but my iphone app doesn't give me forum descriptions, so the only thing I know for that sub forum is stuff that is "in the news, good, bad, and the ugly. My mistake

    And that's it in a nutshell. The "in the news" is not for anything but self defense 2a or ccw news. That's it. Notice the period.

    Very generally speaking, general news story's are not very welcome here. Of
    Course if they are 2A, CCW or even general interest good discussion types (such as the current missing plane) are fine, posted in the off topic section. Regurgitating old stories that live only in internet glory, not so much.

    Yeah, but this is the all time best thread ever about nothing: testing 5 pages on a 2 word opening post. Awesome.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    I think the question has been sufficiently answered.
