    The RKBA group no longer has any business here. They are part of the problem, and the site owner needs to reflect long and hard about having given them such wide berth, especially after some of the appalling comments left by their members, including their fearless leader, after the Giffords massacre.

    So any anti-NRA effort that says be nice to the pro-NRA group here is a non-starter from where I sit. "Oh by RKBA doesn't agree with the NRA. FUCK THE NRA we always say..." That is the weakest dodge imaginable and I'm tired of them being regarded seriously, especially given the long history of anti-social behaviors and ratings abuse practiced by their "members."

      I've stated to several of them that I consider their current position to be part of the problem.

      But I think there can be 'responsible' and regulated gun ownership and use.  I think the second needs changed, not totally repealed.

      At his request, I've even invited kestrel9000, but I'm not planning on putting up with repeated rehashings of the same old conversations over dead end issues such as 'clips vs magazines' or what 'assault weapons' are.  

      All gun violence is a problem, not just violence committed with specific guns.
