    Thank You Moderators

    Just wanted to thank the moderators for allowing us to get all this impeachment stuff off our chests.
    I know that it is verboten to discuss politics, but a presidential impeachment does not happen often.
    You let us rant for a few day, now it’s time to get back to our passion and protecting the 2nd.

    Well, it was in the Off Topic and Humor category, being as all politics are off topic and humorous.

    At the end of the day aside from a couple admin accounts, QKS and I along with all the other mods are all volunteer and as such no one is forced or under any kind of misplaced notion of "duty" to enforce forum rules. So yes, they may get applied a little lop-sided depending on who's on.

    While I'd prefer that staff members didn't participate in political threads beyond shutting them down, I'm not going to cry foul over it if/when it happens because lets be honest, it all boils down to "show me on the doll where the internet hurt you."

    If the membership really wants us to be more strict regarding allowed content I'd be more than happy to oblige. But trust me when I say that NO ONE (myself included) wants this forum to be ran the way I'd like to see it ran, especially in regards to off topic content. I'd nuke half the threads and there'd maybe be 100 members left.


    As has always been the case, no one is forcing anyone to participate here and if you or anyone else doesnt like it, feel free to see yourself out.

    My opinion is that politics and firearms are increasingly inseparable, it seems that the battle to retain our rights under the 2A never ends and the anti-2A forces continue to chip away at our right to self-defense. I find that the relatively lax enforcement of such discussions on this site to be a very significant positive, particularly when such discussions are kept civil.

    I pretty much agree with this, with the additional thought they won't stop with the 2A. If they succeed there, the next amendments to fall will be the 1st and 4th, and then the Constitution as a whole will be obliterated. And by the time the people that think that it's okay to destroy the 2A realize what's happening, it will be too late and we'll all be screwed as a nation.
