Gun related?

A)My thread on 'Dying with Dignity" was closed because it was not gun related.
I wasn't aware of that rule and stand corrected.
Prior to posting though, I checked the forum and noticed 'non-gun' related posts, so I thought mine would be OK.
Just curious....How are "Victim Worship" and " How did we survive" gun related posts?
B) Has anyone here had to confront a armed intruder/assailant?
If so, please give details of how you handled it.
Thanks!

You might find an OP moving this post to the proper forum as well...

This belongs in the Semi-auto forum and there you would definately get some "search this" or "look before you ask"

There is some questionable topics whether or not they are 'gun-related' but they can't catch them all. It seems that the ops allow topics if they are 'intelligent' discussions of something firearms related or dealing with the firing of firearms, including the death given from them and things like that.

I didn't read those posts you were talking about but good luck...

I guess so, but the "survive" topic is 2 pages long!
Just curious as to how the game is played here.
I'll be good, I promise!

DasBoot, how long does it take for a thread to reach two pages long? An hour? A day? If I am away from General Discussion for 10 or 12 hours, when I return, there's no telling what I'll find. Sometimes I'll let a thread go for a while to see if it turns in the right direction.

During an absence of moderators in any given forum for a few hours, you and some others may be here for most of that time and it may seem that an off topic post is just being ignored. Sometimes I'll pop in for a quick look and make sure no flame fests have broken out and then take off to finish some personal business to return later and do some better reading.

Most of the moderators here have very full lives and don't live here, even though TFL is near and dear to our hearts for a lot of reasons.

The rules are applied evenly here on TFL, but there is a lot of judgement involved. If we had a checklist to go by, it would be a lot easier ... and a lot less fun.

Read the posting policies and worry about DasBoot's posts. Staff will take care of the rest.

Proper forum for this would be Tactics and Training.
