While he touches on many topics forbidden here at DC, I wanted to post this because we should hope this man will support the Second Amendment as fervently as he supports the First Amendment!

First, when Barr was nominated several Gun Owners Organizations came out against him because of his dominant role in crafting e Assault Rifle Ban in 1990. While at his hearing he espoused belief in 2A he left wiggle room for more regulations. He is promoting Red Flag Laws across the country, and he was instrumental is getting bump stocks banned.
Second, the permission given by stating "Please feel free to discuss the article with a mind to ignore our forbidden topics" amounts to a disregard for the Rules, which are normally well enforced at DC. So it amounts to setting aside the Rules because it fits the OP's intentions. A moderator is governor of content but, as I see it, that does not mean he is free to exempt anyone. included self from the binding rules especially related to. thread he starts.
Pesronally, I do not care is Barr is discussed. but I do think Rules should apply to all and all the time.
I think that AG Barr is a pretty solid guy, and can be trusted to protect guns and their owners.
Crabby Old Goat, that's me!
a poor plan that is well executed will produce better results that a good plan that is poorly executed.
This is America. I have the right to go places. You have the right to stay home. You have the right to be upset about me going places. I have the right to not care.
I read this right after it was posted on “The Federalist.” It is remarkable and well worth the time to digest. IMO this speech should be ranked with Lincoln’s second inaugural and Kennedy’s “Ask not what your country can do for you” speeches.
“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you [mess] with me, I’ll kill you all."

Well, to those that expressed an opinion without reading the speech, when I wrote the caveat in the OP I was referring to Religion, Abortion, and maybe another prohibited topic or two. Nothing more.
Regardless, I’ll close my own thread due to the failure to fully communicate the essence of the post which was clear had one actually read the speech.
In my defense, I did say “ignore the topics” rather than “ignore the rules” and there is a slight difference to those of you that understood my intent.
