    Thread deleted?

    This morning I posted a thread regarding a local news story about a stolen under cover car. I included a link to the story. It was posted in the "in the news" section . I went to add some info to it, and found that the thread was gone. No history of it, nothing in my profile about starting it. If a post was deleted, should I have been told why? It was a relevant post made in the correct section, at least I thought so. Please someone, an admin perhaps, let me know what's up? Thank you

    Was it ragging on law enforcement, perchance?

    There have been several cautions about posting in the “In the news” forum that if it is not directly related to defensive firearms usage they will be removed.

    Read this before posting here!!!!

    No, it was not ragging on law enforcement. And as far as pertaining to defensive firearms usage, there were 2 police issued firearms stolen along with the car, so yeah I think it fits that too.

    From the Read This link above: "Stop posting any old news story here. This is supposed to be about self defense topics, not a dumping ground for anything you find interesting. This has been made clear in the past, but its getting out of hand again."

    Well I guess someone being irresponsible in securing the very guns people are trying to ban the general public from having isn't news. It wasn't old news, it happened this morning. I will keep to myself from now on. Won't have to worry about my threads being deleted then.

    Put it in "off topic" or in the forum on law enforcement and laws. The "In the News" is specifically for news about someone using a gun to defend themselves, successfully or unsuccessfully.

    Most of us have had threads deleted or locked for one reason or another. It happens pretty frequently.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    That's a big 10-4 JL. I remember one night me and some others here went way off kilter. First the tread got locked then it plumb disappeared. I may have been slightly lit up so of course that added to the fire.

    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    J, you are taking it to personal. Its not. If it does not pertain to self defense it does not belong. Thats the long and short of it.
