Are racial issues the way to get gun issues back into GD?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by DonViejo (a host of the General Discussion forum).

There are 2 GD threads today alone about guns (noting the volume & tenor of posts) that have race added, and have remained up in spite of GD'S SOP. Are there any other hybrids which allow for gun discussion here? I have a number of ones I would like to bring up.

1. The gun forum where gun enthusiasts post the most are a waste of time for someone

like me.

so having GD makes some sense to me.

I mean the NRA paid some corrupt SC justices to misread the 2nd amendment.

5. Now we're cooking!

 

"The NRA paid some corrupt SC justices to misread the 2nd amendment".

Are conspiracy theories are going to be allowed in GD also?

Discuss politics, issues, and current events. Posts about Israel/Palestine, religion, guns, showbiz, or sports are restricted in this forum. Conspiracy and disruptive meta-discussion are forbidden.

6. Locking...

Forum Hosts agree this gun OP is not appropriate for the GD Forum and is also a meta discussion:

GUNS

News stories (and related content) from reputable mainstream sources about efforts to strengthen or weaken gun control legislation in any jurisdiction in the United States, national news stories (and related content) from reputable mainstream sources about high-profile gun crimes, and viral political content from social media or blogs that would likely be of interest to a large majority of DU members are permitted under normal circumstances.

Local stories about gun crime and "gun porn" threads showing pictures of guns or discussing the merits of various firearms are not permitted under normal circumstances and should be posted in the Gun Control and RKBA Group.

Open discussion of guns is permitted during very high-profile news events which are heavily covered across all newsmedia.


DISRUPTIVE META-DISCUSSION

Positive threads about Democratic Underground or its members are are permitted.

Threads complaining about Democratic Underground or its members; threads complaining about jury decisions, locked threads, suspensions, bannings, or the like; and threads intended to disrupt or negatively influence the normal workings of Democratic Underground and its community moderating system are not permitted.
