This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Quote from: Acta Est Fabula
You're vilifying him for advocating the 2nd amendment, and wording it in a way that makes it seem that advocating private gun ownership is the negative flip side of fighting for equal rights?  You're entitled to your opinions, but there are worse things to vilify a person for.  Sure, he was a bit....over the top, but it's not like he was advocating anything that had a profound negative effect on a large group of people.  He was advocating a popular interpretation of the constitution.  Especially in the light of all the good he had done for people over his lifetime.

Unless you are, of course saying that advocating private gun ownership is the evil equivalent of fighting for equal rights.  But then you'd have to also agree, by that logic, that a person who wanted to prohibit people from owning guns would have made up for advocating apartheid and Jim Crow laws.


Leave it to anti-gun wackos to make it sound as if the NRA is the Great Satan.

I mean to say what happened in this thread.


Oh so when the right threadcraps it's acceptable?
"The difference between being fascinated with RPGs and being fascinated with the RPG industry is akin to the difference between being fascinated with sex and being fascinated with masturbation. Not that there's anything wrong with jerking off, but don't fool yourself into thinking you're getting laid." —Aos

John didn't threadcap, he responded to threadcaps that started at the second post to this thread.

Yawn.
Your current safe boundaries were once unknown frontiers.

It's nice to have a written record in cases like this, however boring you may find it.
