    RKBA needs to change.

    You are a Dem activist who participates in a wide variety of subjects on this site. We need people like you to stay here.

    We don't need people who's sole purpose is support for NRA positions. The ganging up by the RKBA folks is offending a large number of people in this community. I can assure you that this community will unite to stop the gang tactics.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

      is not 'ganging up" simply because you disagree.

        I have seen groups that were far more essential to the Democratic community than RKBA get driven off of this site. I don't like seeing this site lose diversity.

        I have paid close attention to research on internet group dynamics. Communities as a whole frequently drive out sub-groups. Sometimes it happens for all the wrong reasons. Many Hillary supporters left this community in 2008 because they felt that this place was hostile to them. That was unfortunate for this community.

        We need a discussion on this community about guns that isn't held in an echo chamber. However, if members of RKBA continue to use bullying tactics, they will be driven out. That's how internet communities work.

          because you disagree with us.

          they will be driven out.
          Threats aren't helpful.

          groups like RKBA is to Democratic causes. One of the most powerful tools of the RW is NRA driven memes about taking peoples guns away.

          There are a lot of people in the new swing states who will vote Dem if they feel that their gun ownership isn't under attack. Keep up with the idea of banning guns and states like Colorado and Nevada will go right back into the R fold

          I can't speak for what day to day life is like in your area but I know mine and guns and the west are like white on rice. The fact that the Dems backed off of their anti-gun rhetoric brought out voters who were fed up Republican bullshit. Start it up again and watch them flee.
