    I agree with CTR. I favor this forum the most because it is moderated well and doesn't allow especially religious or political topics.

    If you are here on this forum you should be here to talk about guns and all things self defense related.

    If you want to discuss politics or religion, go somewhere else.

    There is a forum I go to less frequently because it seems that half the threads are either disparaging Obama or praising Jesus. I can't stand it and find myself going there less and less.

    Agreed! I just joined this forum, and I must say it is awesome. All the folks on here are really cool!

    Who doesn't like debating religious topics on the internet? It's the greatest waste of time in the history of the world, but it's fun. I also have to make a conscious effort not to curse on this site, but so it goes.

    As for the OP - if somebody gets that upset over a facebook post, then screw 'em. Your point of view is fairly common. I don't believe any state has allowed gay marriage due to popular vote.

    I could not have said it better. I am a liberal myself but I dislike the idea of politics on a carry forum. If there was a subforum for it that would be fine but it isn't my board to decide. I've been banned from another forum for heated debates as they only allowed one political view to be voiced. I like it here where it is not about political views.

Are we at a zero tolerance here on the forum, or has the new ownership put a lockdown status on any issue that people are interested in that may have some controversy?
    Well buddy, you certainly were wailing for (and received) a lockdown when I posted a couple of articles about innocent people killed by LE.
    Which way do you want it?
    Controversy must be in the eye of the beholder.

    "WWJD" ?

    What is this? What would JD do?

    I agree. In the short time that I have been a member I have come to realize that MOST of the posters on here are respectful of everyone else. Most of it comes down to common courtesy IMO. But there are always those few who either can't or won't have a civilized discussion with someone with whom they disagree (or can not take a little good natured ribbing) and they ruin it for everyone. This being said; I would not be opposed to seeing a sub-forum dedicated to politics and/or gun/hunting politics only. Take care.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not ever add a subforum for politics religion etc on this forum. It will only create controversy and hurt feelings.

    Honestly, does anyone believe that the world's greatest mysteries or debates are going to be solved here on the forum? With all due respect to the forum and its members.

    Let's talk about guns!

    My experience tells me that hypocrisy and intolerance are sometimes the only thing 2 sides have in common. I'm not scared to admit it. But some people are.

    WWJD = "What Would Jesus Do?", a very unwelcome attempt to bring religion into the discussion.

    Agreed. It has been my experience that these backroom forums really do generate hard feelings between some members and even though it is not supposed to, it does spill out into the general areas.

    With respect to the initial topic, the OP learned a valuable lesson about sites like Facebook or any other site that is "all the rage". I don't have an account there and can't say that I want one.

    I have learned over time that the moderators will moderate and if I can't post something relevant and without being a sarcastic ass then I need to just move on to the next thread

    After re-reading my post I have to agree with you that it does/will spill over into other things...I guess I should have said that I wish it was possible to have a sub-forum and/or discuss these things without it spilling over.
