Are you surprised that they did that? We have considered it many times as well. People usually act like gentlemen in the other sub-forums, but here they often act like they're on the Jerry Springer Show and the staff is getting very tired of dealing with it.So, I guess that we will now be like The High Road where political discussion is verbotten.
Free speech means you have a Constitutional right to set up your very own Internet forum, pay for it and run it like it's your house. Right now you're in somebody else's.Pretty intolerant. Isn't this America? You know, we have that free speech thing.
I know you're trying to be snide, but ironically, you're correct. Self censorship actually is delightful. Although a more common term for it is "manners". Every day there are things I'd love to say to people that it would be neither polite nor prudent to say, so I don't. I think almost all of us fall into that category. It's what we learned as we developed into mature adults. Just because you can do or say something doesn't mean you should.I get it, self censorship. Delightful!
That was very well said BoulderTroll.I know you're trying to be snide, but ironically, you're correct. Self censorship actually is delightful. Although a more common term for it is "manners". Every day there are things I'd love to say to people that it would be neither polite nor prudent to say, so I don't. I think almost all of us fall into that category.

About damned time, now, can we begin that thread where religion fits in with the 2nd!
:rock::rock::rock:Nope. Go find a 1A forum if you want to be an idiot.
Rules are rules and I understand that.Ya know?
I don't blame the Administrators and Moderators.
Posting on this site is similar to being in their house.
It is their house.
Paid for by them.
Built by them.
Maintained by them.
So while we all have "Freedom of Speech", we also have an obligation to be courteous while in someone else's house.
After all, you'd expect that same courtesy in your own house.
So anyone who doesn't like how this site is administered or moderated, kindly build your own site at your own expense.
Then, you can say anything you want to.
I for one appreciate the opportunity to post here.
I've learned lots about 1911's, reloading and BHP's.
I've also enjoyed discussing and debating within the framework of the rules of this site.
Unless you are a troll or just not very bright, why would you want to come to a gun forum and attack the only candidate in the race that supports the Second Amendment? And don't tell me the Libertarian Party supports it when they put William Weld on the ticket.But isn't that the same logic the Dems use to control speech? "We make the rules, so here is what can be discussed and what cannot be discussed?"
Well said!We are a Pro 2A forum. Learn it, know it, live it and love it. Or for those that don't, take a hike.
Being disappointed in Trump's campaign up to this point does not make someone anti-gun. That's BS.Well said!
Presently, we seem to be Living in a time and place where if you're anti Trump then you're anti 2nd Amendment (it is what it is). Unfortunately, there seem to be a lot of anti Trump ppl around here.
