Legal & Political News Rules and Guidelines--Please READ and Stay familiar with these

Please be aware of the following when posting in Legal & Political News.

1) This subforum is for topics DIRECTLY RELATED to Second Amendment Legal and Political news, issues and legislation.

If your thread title is similar to "A bit off topic" then you know it doesn't belong. Intentionally starting off topic threads, "because it is important" or because you can justify it as "related" will be deleted without warning. Continued violations of this rule will result in disciplinary action.

These are a few examples of topics that are not suitable for posting in this forum, this is NOT an all inclusive list:

A. Politics/Politicians/Actors/Celebrities and their shenanigans not directly related to the Second Amendment.
B. Abortion
C. Religion
D. Race/Ethnicity
E. Sexual topics
D. Jokes, humor pieces, or other non-factual items
G. Doomsday, end of world, when they come for guns type scenarios - stick with current and impending (ie realistic) legislation and topics.
H. Content of poor taste such as articles containing graphic descriptions of crimes committed
I. "How To" threads containing information intended to circumvent the law
J. Reports of accidental/negligent shootings or random murders. Just because a firearm is involved does not make it a topic for discussion on this forum or in this subforum.

2) By using this website, you agree not to post copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you.

DO NOT copy and paste or reproduce copyrighted material on this website. Only a link to the original article or online resource, and a brief overview/summary is permitted.

DO use the 'Report Post' feature when you spot a possible copyright infringement on the website

Remember, you are responsible for what you post on this website and any legal ramifications that may result. Respect others' work!

3) Discussion is currently allowed. Please observe the Forum Rules and the guidelines above when posting. KEEP IT CIVIL! Offensive language will not be tolerated.

4) Insults (Direct, indirect, veiled, hidden, implied, clever or not) will be deleted. No more warnings, no more selective editing, etc, if it appears to be inflammatory or insulting, however subjective, it WILL BE DELETED. If you value your posted opinions, leave out the insults.

5) Related to #3, please do not "hijack" a thread. Discussion should pertain to the original topic. Doing so will result in your post being deleted and may result in a temporary or permanent ban.

6) While we are supporters of the entire Bill of Rights, the 1st Amendment applies to the government's ability to control your speech, not to our ability to manage this private forum as we see fit.

Please send suggestions, complaints, or concerns to staff members in this list: Public displays will not be tolerated.

7) Please do not moderate the forum unless you are a moderator. Use the "report post" button as needed.

8) Threads "Beating a Dead Horse" may be closed. Expect this once they go past news/relevant info information into endless opinion/counter opinion.

9) Threads trashing the President/members of Congress/Actors/other "celebrities" don't belong here either. We don't like them either, feel they are a threat to our Second Amendment Rights (not to mention our other Rights), but ranting about their actions and calling them names doesn't help our cause. If anything, it gives them ammunition to use against us. Attack the positions they hold and their actions, but when we resort to name calling and insults, we lose credibility.

An explanation may not always accompany moderator action. If your post/thread mysteriously disappears, assume that it did not comply with these guidelines. See rule #6

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
