    The view of those that..

    Want to discuss Govts, are carrying some latent hate or pissed off with our current one or have what ever theory of why things are what they are in this world. You have the right IMHO to discuss what ever you like but could you please keep it in the Firearms law change section ?
    I cant speak for others but Id like to avoid it if possible, the spread into other sections and threads makes it impossible.

    Fair call, threads do tend to drift but we could try a bit harder to keep that stuff in relevant threads.

    No apology needed, its just a house keeping suggestion. Im sure Iv added to the spread previously but things could get really tough so Im going to try and avoid stuff that lowers the mood.

    Good luck trying to keep this lot on-topic

    I've tried from time to time and generally given up but hey, go for it

    Also one note, I rarely browse by topic and often hit "What's new?" so the threads that come up aren't segregated that way, that may be part of the problem?

    So let me try clarify this, some would prefer that conversations of truth and critical thinking, which are off-topic in nature generally, be kept out of the "Off-Topic" thread and moved to the "Firearm Law Changes" thread.

    That's a bit off-topic for the firearms law changes thread isn't it?

    Well, easy fix... We could just rename the Firearm Law Changes section to "various rants about the govt"

    Basically yes. This forum started out with fairly strict No politics rule. It was a good rule. Its obviously gone out the window with last years events but I dont think that should mean abandoning the old rule all together. I think the fire arms law change section is the better place for it as it already full of like material and seems to be from mostly the same posters.

    Why are trademe trying to keep this forum in order?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    It's turning out that Govt is so embedded in our day to day lives that you cant do without them.
