Lol

Removed off topic by staff while staff post an intire post that is off topic haha .

Anyway I'll post this again because nobody commented on it , maybe it was missed or deemed unworthy of comment . If this case goes to discovery , can the gun manufacturers bring up fast and furious . Resulting in the ability to circumvent the executive privilege order by the Obama admin and opening up those fast and furious records for discovery ?

That happens about 99% of the time.


Oh, not because your claim the thread is off-topic. It's because the failure of comprehending the difference between discussing L&CR with a focus on firearms from focus on political idealologies (sp).

Since it appears you, and a few others, have completely missed the mark, here's what I would HIGHLY recommend doing.

1. Refrain from publicly criticizing Staff on enforcing the rules that YOU SPECIFICALLY AGREED to follow. You have a problem with us? Take it to PM or email and offer an intelligent/thoughtful conversation with a proposed solution to the problem you have. Wanna be snarky? I would just move on. We all have full time jobs on top of trying to provide fair moderation on our free time with zero compensation. The last thing we honestly want to do is deal with unreasonable comments that does nothing to make TFL a better place. We spend enough time as it is to read through comments with far more noise than signal, clean them up, and deal with those that refuse to read/follow TFL's rules. You may not think it's a big deal. Over the years, I've received compliments from members that appreciate us keeping threads on-topic so they don't waste their time trying to separate the wheat from the chaff. And THAT'S a big deal to me...making sure members that come on here aren't wasting THEIR time.

2. Reread post #24 in this thread. Reread, as in, read and comprehend the proper context of the content.

3 Reread this Sticky Post in the same manner as item #2: https://thefiringline.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=313714

Al Norris didn't author L&CR to be a loose ship for a reason. If anyone STILL doesn't get it after reading L&CR's rules, then take into deep consideration to not post in it at all....just as the rules stated.

Well I guess I don't have anything more to say on that but maybe my signature line can help people understand where I was coming from and this is the reason it's there .

Only if the court a.k.a. Judge allows it and apparently from what I read in this thread the puppet masters shopped a court in Boston so good luck with all that. If it goes to court and as someone else mention here it will be what side of the isle they lean politically and in Boston, well you get the drift I'm sure.

Of course if the gun manufactures as well as the ammo manufactures cared enough the nonsense could all end tomorrow when they announce no more guns and ammo for the cops and the military.

But like the NRA, they are as full of do-do as all the rest of them. And only work for Wall-Street.
