PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING - IMPORTANT MESSAGE - PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING
This is something new at M1911.ORG – a Forum focusing on legal issues related firearms. Discussions will be limited to legal issues as they relate to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, including of course the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and other core and related Civil Rights such as Search and Seizure, Self Incrimination, and Due Process. This can include court decisions, on going litigation, legislation and U. S. Constitutional law (which would encompass separation of powers, checks and balances, full faith and credit and the Bill of Rights).

It will be unavoidable that the focus here will be the United States, but discussion of similar legal issues in other countries will be welcome. We have seen discussions elsewhere of such topics quickly degenerate into name calling and invective. That would be unacceptable here. We remain committed to being a community in which appropriate subjects can be discussed as gentlemen and gentlewomen in a community of mutual respect.

Accordingly, please take special notice of the following:

  • * Discussions will be limited to legal issues as they relate to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, including of course the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and other core and related Civil Rights such as Search and Seizure, Self Incrimination, and Due Process. This can include court decisions, on going litigation, legislation and U. S. Constitutional law (which would encompass separation of powers, checks and balances, full faith and credit and the Bill of Rights).
  • * It will be unavoidable that the focus here will be the United States, but discussion of similar legal issues in other countries will be welcome. But general political discussion or partisan politics is emphatically off limits. The litmus test for unacceptable political content will include reference to candidates, or elections political parties. We realize that it's difficult to separate discussions of legal issues, especially legislation and civil rights, entirely from politics. So for this Forum only, we will allow some political discussion only to the extent it is an adjunct and a minor part of a discussion within the proper scope of this Forum. A decision by a moderator that something has crossed the line shall be final and not debatable.
  • * Invective or snark is not welcome nor acceptable anywhere on this board and is especially to be avoided here. Let's not have any twisting of names or denigrating of States, parties or viewpoints (no Demon-crats, Libertards, Kommifornia. Etc.). So please use proper names and terminology. No need to be rabble rousing.
  • * Conspiracy theories aren't welcome.

We've seen lively and useful discussions of legal and civil rights issues conducted in a civil, civilized manner.
