Am I wrong in my perception that threads in regards to Jerry Brown and gun law in CA get shut down and locked faster than any other subject matter on the forum? I would think discussion of CA gun rights and our current governor to be pretty pertinent stuff, why am I sensing it is discouraged?

Maybe blind speculation about what he may or may not do in the future about laws that haven't been written yet isn't considered to be an effective use of forum real estate? ;)

Just kidding, I haven't seen threads like that locked unless they were dupes.

I don't think it is discouraged so much as it is pointless to tilt at hypothetical windmills.

I doubt thread death will be the case when there are legitimate, real issues to hash out, discuss and B&M over. :)

Maybe JB speculation threads were nuked because they were getting in the way of important threads about online polls? :stuart:

You mean like the thread about whether JB would veto a hypothetical law replacing AB962 before anyone has even written it? I have no idea what it was locked...

Maybe we should start a few threads with polls asking forum members why they think the thread was locked. :p

Maybe there is a secret Calgun's admin working in JB's office.

Because people insist on ignoring all the pro-gun things he's done, and accuse him of being just as bad as Paul Helmke, Juliet Leftwich, and Karen Arntzen all rolled into one?

But... but... what will JB do if there's a poll on CNN about the UN finding a high-cap mag in a sack of marijuana out in the desert after February 1! :willy_nilly:

Personally, I think things are getting locked up a little soon.

I guess I don't care all that much that they were, but the thread about an AB962 would have been interesting as an exploration of the likely attitude of the legislature and the governor as well as the influence of the courts on the future behavior of the legislative and executive parts of our state government.

Personally, I think there'll be an attempt to draft the legislation and that it will fail at some level - but I'd have been very interested in seeing what others thought and why.

It looks to me like AB-962 related conversation JB or no JB, is being directed towards master threads.

Relax. Eat a sandwich or something. There's no conspiracy here, and the folks running this board are not commies. They're some of the most hard-core pro-liberty folks I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Sometimes things get a bit out of hand and they need to do some pruning, and often things get pruned before most of us have a chance to see the post that crossed the line (which might not have even been yours, anyway).

My friend Rex lives in Boulder Creek. I'm sure he'll show you his face. :P
