Hey all - we've been struggling over the last day or so with several threads related to gun use, gun images, etc. Just a general reminder, hot button topics such as religion, politics, and gun/weaponry discussions are not permitted. These threads will either be locked or simply removed with no discussion. The internet is a big old place, and there are forums devoted to these topics. TPF is NOT one of them. Even as a photography forum, simply showing images of your gun collections will inevitably bring about inflammatory comments, despite the OP's best intentions. Hence, we can and will continue to remove all such posts. Please remember TPF is a privately owned forum, and the moderating team is here to enforce the guidelines as laid out by the site owners. Simply put, it is not a democracy, so posting opinion polls or complaining will not change the rules. We're not trying to be harsh, just laying out the facts. Remember, only the Subscriber's forum is mainly unmoderated and, as a hidden forum, is THE single place in TPF where the rules are more lax. Thanks to everyone for your continued support!
