It is important to stay involved with 2nd amendment issues. But I imagine there are lots of places where we can continue to do that effectively.
This is the only site that I participate in. The only one I have ever participated in. I have looked at others, but never participated. I have not seen the quality anywhere else that I see here. Thus I have not been inspired to participate.
I had said in one of the last political posts that I felt the cross section of people here was very good, and made me comfortable to fuss, discuss, and even argue. I think even the most contentious of threads hear have been quite civil. Over the last several years I have seen little to nothing that I would not let my kids read. Rarely do I even see folks using symbols to show that they are using foul language. I think guys have gotten angry, but hey, that happens.
Not that it matters now, but I would rather see a forum that is for things not related to hunting/shooting, than closing the door.
I know you don't want to play referee, but if it is not done with some kind of class, it's not tolerated.
Len, thank for the invitation into your living room. I am a guest and I understand that. I just hate to see some of the life of the site disappear.
