Answering here 'G'.

There are too many 'removed' comments here and I can't follow the conversation very well. I saw that comment by Narley last night and it was perfectly fine. Shouldn't have been removed. He's got a shadow ban on his comment, because he can see it, but we can't. Shadow bans are icky. Trickery. I no like.

'jrhirsch' got banned a while back as well. I miss his input on the forum. His, was a voice of reason that I read regularly.

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (5691) from St Louis, MO 8 months ago

"I no like." heheheh.

Yep, shadow-bans are deception. It's no wonder some question the motivations of those in control.

Are you sure jr got banned? Or did he leave by choice? He was one of the good ones. Intelligent, critical thinker. The forum's imploding!

[-] 2 points by Renneye (3160) 8 months ago

Sadly, I have to agree. The censorship is questionable.

Yes, 'jrhirsch' is definitely banned.

When I hadn't seen him on the forum for a few days, I PMed and asked him if everything's ok. He said that as soon as he posts anything, his comments disappear instantly.

I PMed again a few days ago, but no answer. But I added that it might not be an outright ban. It could be a computer glitch. Like what happened to me a little while back. But, I haven't heard back from him.

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (5691) from St Louis, MO 8 months ago

It almost sounds like what happened to you. We thought it was a ban, but turned out our suspicions were premature. Hopefully, you'll hear back from him and he can give it a try again. Narley's comment could have been a glitch as well, because all his other comments here can be seen. Why just shadow-ban one neutral comment especially considering the plethora of gun-related comments that have been posted over the last couple weeks. There was nothing in his that warranted a ban of any kind.

Nope, I take it back, it wasn't a computer glitch it seems. He copy-pasted it into a different response for me and now THAT comment is gone too. I don't know, Ren, I just don't know.

The entire justice system is based off of money. Stand your ground doesnt have much to do with it.

How long has Florida been a wholly owned subsidiary?

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20617) from South Burlington, VT 9 months ago

there really is only one solution. All that is required is the will to establish sufficient curbs to such behavior . . . I had originally clarified such curbs with the term proper, but in reality the kinds of curbs that actually produce measurable results in such instances have about as much to do with anything that can be considered as either right or proper as - as - as -

any repelican office holder has with either truth or integrity . . .

Sigh, guns, aren't going away. Period. You can whine, protest, call your congressman or whatever. It doesn't matter. Guns are her to stay. I know you don't like guns. So the best thing for you to do is live in New York where gun restrictions are tougher. Because most of the US is armed to the teeth. That's just the way it is and there's nothing you can do about it.

[-] 2 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 8 months ago

And that's what they said about slavery, excluding women from voting, landing on the moon, freedom to marry and freedom to carry. Number 2 is obsolete, out of date, killing way too many innocent Americans, and stinks! The Wild West is Long Gone!

[-] 1 points by Narley (-634) 8 months ago

How many people died in the Civil War to end slavery? I've heard more men were killed in the Civil War than any other war. My point is that gun ownership is so deeply held in the US it could be as bad as a civil war. Trying to disarm 86 million gun owners who are willing to fight for their rights would be bloody.

I'm being a little dramatic, but not much. If you've visited any gun forums you'd know the attitude of gun owners is defiant. They will not give up there guns; and many will fight to the death to keep them. I think you grossly underestimate the resolve of gun owners to keep their guns.

[-] 1 points by TikiJ (-38) 8 months ago

No one is coming for their guns. "

They dont need their guns, they can just shut off the water"

If allowing 86 million the ability to own a gun is what it takes to make them feel free, thats what they will do. Take all their other rights, but "Hey we showed em we aint givin up our guns!!"

Thats the game. Its a lose lose.

[-] 1 points by Narley (-634) 8 months ago

If it ever gets to the point of turning off the water, I'd bet someone with a gun might turn it back on.

I'm not sure I consider it a "lose lose" situation. Just because people like guns doesn't mean it's the only thing they care about. People are passionate about a lot of things. Things like abortion, corruption, illegal government actions and the list goes on. Guns are just one of the many issues Americans seem not to be able to deal with.

[-] 0 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 8 months ago

"A little dramatic"? try whistling Dixie!

I'm sure once we have exhausted the lousy and deadly alternatives, American's will reach a reasonable compromise for good of the nation.

No one's archaic hobby is worth killing innocent Americans, not one!

[-] -1 points by Narley (-634) 8 months ago

Nope, once we've exhausted the lousy and deadly alternatives. Guns still won't be regulated and gun ownership will probably rise.

Think of it this way. A lot of people think American society will collapse. Some are even wanting it to happen. People know that and fully intend to be prepared when the collapse does occur. That reason alone probably drive the most passion of gun owners.

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (5691) from St Louis, MO 8 months ago

"Now I'm confused. I don't see your answer. maybe your response got removed."

Damn Narley, now I'm confused. Are you saying you still see your question with your comment about Field and Stream being the only gun magazine a while back? I don't see that question, only my response. You can't see my response on your screen? This is the first paragraph of my answer to you:

"That's a good question. And there were more magazines than just 'Field and Stream' long ago but I do get your point. It wasn't the mania it is now. And I'm sure tomorrow you'll get the typical posters chiming in about how it's all the NRA's fault but I think it's bigger than that. I think part of it is the militarization of society which really began in the '60's to make the citizens pro-war to defend the Viet Nam war. It's no coincidence GI Joe came out in 1964 if I remember correctly. So, it's a societal thing that goes back an easy fifty years. And it's only gotten worse and more institutionalized in the last ten or fifteen. Check my old post about the "Military Entertainment Complex" (shameless plug) to see how much it permeates western society."

WTF?

Strange, Narley. Very strange.

You mean you saw your question to me, or my response to you? I went ahead and deleted my comment later last night. There wasn't a point in keeping it here without your question preceding it, and decided maybe I shouldn't be giving people crazy ideas like "home-made miniguns," heheh.

[-] 2 points by Narley (-634) 8 months ago

Yea, last night when you asked about it I could still see my "Field & Stream" post. There was one removed post under it. But tonight it's gone. I don't have a clue what's going on. Maybe the mods really are messing with me (us)?

Oh crap, It's back. I don't know what's going on.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (5691) from St Louis, MO 8 months ago

"So what gives?. What caused all this gun mania?"

Yep, on my screen that's been removed. I think that might be some kind of shadow-ban, where you can see your comments but no one else can. But why only that comment of yours? All your other comments on this thread are still visible to me. And there was nothing in your comment that warranted being removed to begin with. Makes no sense, man. Must be personal, but again, why just one comment? I dunno, I'm tired of trying to figure why certain comments or posters get banned but others don't. There's absolutely no logic to it whatsoever.

[-] 2 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 8 months ago

From the onset of motion pictures there has been pro-war propaganda, probably reaching its pinnacle before and during WW-2. There were dozens of hunting-fishing-outdoors ("gun") magazines, are they gone? The NRA is one of the biggest and most powerful lobbyist organizations our governments, local to federal, are inflicted with. Too bad there isn't a lobby for People Against Getting Shot!

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (5691) from St Louis, MO 8 months ago

That sounds about right. Look at all the war movies put out during WWII, there must be a couple hundred at least. And they continued all thru the fifties into the sixties. My dad used to watch them all the time. Plus the TV shows back in the '60's, Combat, The Rat Patrol, etc. Entertainment, but also propaganda to an extent. Hell, look at Hogan's Heroes. A sitcom about prisoner of war camps, for god's sake.

"Too bad there isn't a lobby for People Against Getting Shot!"

Heheheh, that's funny, but definitely true.

You overlooked the matter that the people won't give up their guns and won't register their guns. No really, they won't do it no matter who the politicians are. I think you underestimate how deeply guns are ingrained in American society and how strongly people feel about their guns.

How many unlicensed drivers do you know who own & drive unregistered cars?

Apples and oranges. People don't think they need guns to protect themselves. Sorry, guns aren't going away; and few if any new guns restrictions will be instituted.

Nope, the people draw the line when you want to register or ban their guns.

"Now I wonder what my post said?"

Basically you were wondering what was the reason for the increase in gun sales, gun clubs, etc. over the past 15 or 20 years. You mentioned it was a fairly recent occurrence, that people have always had guns around but it was never as bad or violent as it has been recently.

There wasn't anything in it that should have given anyone a reason to remove it. Yet another nonsensical moderation. Hell, my answer to you was worse than your question to me considering I could've given someone a bad idea about the home-made minigun.

Guess I might as well remove my answer then, since without your question, it's useless.

[-] 1 points by Narley (-634) 8 months ago

OK, I looked at it. I don't think it was my post. My post, responding to you, is still there. Looks like the removed post is in response to my post.

Besides, prohibitions cause black markets. Then consider the fact that plans are online that show how to make your own firearms with no machine tools using off the shelf components. Try to ban guns and what you'll get is criminals using the modern-day equivalent of 'zip guns.' Not to mention the advances being made with printing 3-D gun parts. Some simple facts the 'anti-gun nutters' just don't get.

NYC has over 400 MURDERS. You may want to focus in your own backyard. SYG or no SYG doesnt stop someone from pulling the trigger, as cities without out prove.
