The question was 'Is EDC Anti Gun'.
1.Yes but I don't agree.
2.Yes and I do agree.
3.No and I'm happy about that.
4.No but I wish they were.
5. Yes/No but I don't have an opinion.
It has become obvious that only replies which fit into categories 1 or 3 are acceptable somehow because this is in the firearms section of the forum. Despite it being the logical place to put the thread. I think the question has to be to the moderators of the forum, is the 'firearm' section solely for pro US style EDC gun carry (of the nonrestrictive states style) discussion or is it open to differing viewpoints that a thread like this might create?
I'm not sure the way you frame the discussion is fair.
To preface this: I don't claim to be a spokesperson for the whole forum, or the firearm community, but I do claim to be a reasonable and respectful individual. I believe the way that I have approached this discussion is fair and reasonable.
Yes, the question of the OP is somewhat binary, but the topic of EDC firearm carry has as many layers as any other topic. As you insinuate, there are many countries, and states in the US, which have varying degrees of legal firearm carry, and respectful discussion of the differences and their validity is perfectly welcome. Such discussion of general firearm EDC is a deviation from the topic of the OP of this thread, which is specifically about whether or not this site is itself anti-gun, or run by anti-gun folks, and thus might be better suited as its own thread.
I believe the specific question of the OP has been answered by prior posts, so I won't rehash it here.
If your concern is that this thread has deviated from the OP (which it has), please feel free to start another thread for us to have that discussion in.
I'll end with this: proactively starting a thread to discuss a topic is far better for the community and for that particular discussion than bringing it up in an unrelated thread; and if you see such a deviation of topic, proactively moving the discussion to its own thread is a good idea.. As with any topic, approaching the discussion in an obviously open-minded way will be far more likely to receive open and respectful responses.
Remember - as the person instigating (for lack of a better term), or continuing, the discussion, it is up to you to set the tone.
