Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Firearms Law and Policy Newswire - Here is a link to a report by Jon Ralston Jon is a very well respected Nevada political reporter. If you want to know what is happening in Nevada, you ask Jon.

Just a sample of what you will find:

“A man who appeared to be a soldier in (camouflage) fatigues and carrying what appeared to be an assault rifle motioned me to stop and asked where I was going. I said to the Wal-Mart just down the street and he motioned me along.”
As for the militia sticking around, all three residents shared Burkett's sentiment: "The whole community is not sure they want that. We'd like to tell them to go home".
I have really nothing to add, but thought the KOS community would be interested in hearing from the towns people themselves.  Take a look.  It is fairly short, but informative.

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

We are beginning a Firearms Law and Policy NEWSWIRE service covering gun law and policy news from all over the country. These reports will be as brief as a few sentences or as large as a full diary. They may include your home state perspective or simply report on current news. We Shall Overcome is the Managing Editor. We welcome your input. Please feel free to post links with your comments and/or send a message to Firearms Law and Policy.

The Daily Kos Firearms Law and Policy group studies actions for reducing firearm deaths and injuries in a manner that is consistent with the current Supreme Court interpretation of the Second Amendment. If you would like to write about firearms law please send us a Kosmail.

To see our list of original and republished diaries, go to the Firearms Law and Policy diary list. Click on the ♥ or the word "Follow" next to our group name to add our posts to your stream, and use the link next to the heart to send a message to the group if you have a question or would like to join.
