Under that standard, shouldn't this topic be off limits, likewise the brady campaign thread stickied at the top of the page? Request for a ruling, please?
The fundamental civil right to keep and bear arms for self defense purposes (Thank you Heller
) is on topic.
The Federal regulation in this discussion is the equivalnet to and has the effect of legislated law. Again on topic.
The fact that some, think this regulation may be abrogated by an EO (another form of regulation) is on topic.
As stated in the "rules," political discussion should be peripheral to the discussion of Law and Civil Rights. I will be the first to admit that some political discussion will be greater than peripheral in some topics than others. This appears to be the case here.
This thread will close if the discussion turns completely away from the core discussion of National Parks and lawful concealed carry. As yet, I don't believe that point has been reached. There are 5 other moderators that are more than capable of overruling me.
