    After recent consultation with members of the forums, in private and in general conversations on the forums we've had cause to review our policy on the display of firearms on the site. As a result of the review of the policy and the practical enforcement of the policy that we were carrying out we've made the following change to the site rules:


    *While images containing firearms depicted for the sake of art are permitted, discussion of firearms and related politics is not. Like politics and religion, it is another “hot button” topic that can lead to inflammatory discussion. Such discussion posts will be removed by the moderating team.


    We hope that the following change will now allow those who wish to display such photos to do so freely and that users will take heed of the restriction regarding discussion topics relating to firearms.
