The thread was titled Bad advice from military/law enforcement...
This is an example of what I mentioned in my first post on this thread. There are deleted posts on the last page of that thread that contributed to the decision to close.
In the shotshells thread, here are a few of the more obvious things that contributed to the close.
1. The focus turning from firearms to whether or not snakes should be killed.
2. The introduction of religion/God/Bible quotes into the discussion.
...exactly what in rule # 3 was violated?
3. One member labeling anyone who disagreed with his view and acted based on their own opinion instead of his as "useless ignorant undeserving pigs".
