[EDIT: 15Jan13. Thread title changed to help keep our yack Local. MRP] After Friday's latest massacre/'incident', i visited ADV's Church, State, and Money thread for the basement's take on Sandy Hook. It went sideways instantly, with polarized politics and polemics all over the map. I thought we could do better. Most of us here know each other personally. I consider many of you FF's true friends. We have in this Sandbox cadre a vast depth of firearms expertise, to understate it. Many of you have grown up with firearms since wee youth, as i have. We all know that Friday's horror will renew calls for policy change re: guns. I propose this thread to discuss what Control arguments are coming, the validity/viability of them (or lack of), etc. Let's keep it civil and informative. With all the experience base amongst us i'm certain we can get some good points across. Keep in mind: We are looked at by benevolent ADV moderators DataDaddy and Retro. If this thing goes south/mean it'll get booted to the basement. Like i said, i think we can do better. Thoughts?
