I just don't get it! This category is "2A Legal & Political News ONLY." To my way of thinking it should always have been "2A Legal." Anything political should never have been included. How many times did your granddad or dad tell you that we don't discuss religion or politics. They are too personal and private to open to people you don't know. They're bad enough with friends and family.

Maybe it's fair to say there was a screw up to ever allow this discourse. I found it difficult on many occasions to separate the political opinions of some members from the respect I had for their knowledge of my favorite firearms. I oftentimes found myself pissed off. And that shouldn't have happened. My interest is in the knowledge members have, and can share, about the 1911. My vote is to eliminate the "Political News ONLY' portion of the category permanently.
