I am simply stimulating discussion about an extremely relevant topic that pertains our community, your attempt at bashing me personally is laughable, and a bit upsetting, but let's take a look:
"Jesse Helmick said, "what do you guys (and gals) think?"
we call this opening dialog... this is a forum right?
"If you are a Life Member, and are not yet aware that the topic of guns is a sensitive one on these boards, then now you do."
you can see I'm a darn lifer.. LOL And weather or not it's a sensitive topic does not negate it's importance of discussion or relevancy for a "new" thread, (I posted a thread some months ago when this was going through its course) or constitute your rudeness, I didn't attack anyone for their input, I welcomed it. but let's keep going...
"You have exaggerated the claims of the linked news report, which discusses a relaxed restriction on allowed firearms, but not to the degree that you have stated, "firearms are now legal."
I can't see anywhere in my post where I exaggerated anything here is another link:
did anything I say anything that differed from the news artical I read?
one question I do have is how this got pushed with a credit card related bill? pretty weird... (there, is something to discuss)
"You have also felt the need to add rhetoric on firearm use that serves little purpose to those who are firearm supporters, and serves to antagonize those who are not."
again, how so? Is this reference to my comment about "mexican drug cartels"? because if so, that is my only real life reference to a reason someone might want to bring a weapon into the woods, (again where I lived, this was a serious issue) THE SAME FEARS, ONE MIGHT HAVE ABOUT MT. LIONS, BEARS, WEIRDOS or any unknown you could find on a trail that would make someone want some level of protection?
"The ground rules for threads are:
Be civil, reasonable, and helpful. Off-topic, inflammatory, or inappropriate posts will be removed at our discretion."
ok, I'm being repetitive, but, how so? have I violated any of these rules?
edit: for spelling
