    There have been a lot of gun threads lately. The idea has been proposed for a gun related forum somewhere, perhaps all encompassing but at least SOMETHING that would cover a good deal of the gun threads.

    Sure the simple answer is "Make a gun sub-forum". Yeah, obviously.

    But, what should the title be, where should it go?

    Two situations and problems come to mind. There are two types of gun threads. Gun LAW threads, and "Hey check out my new gun" threads.

    We'd almost need two separate forums under different areas of GF to correctly categorize these threads. I don't think we necessarily need two gun subforums though.

    So, post yours ideas. Where would a gun subforum fit best, and what should it entail?

    If anything it should be a gun laws sub forum in MD somewhere. We definitely don't need a new forum for "I got a new gun" type threads.

    Conversation I just had with Hybrix on the subject.

    I'd put "Guns" under "Lifestyle," as the two terms appear to be synonymous for the member who would post in there the most.

    But read the chat log Kaz posted.

    We don't necessarily want Lifestyle > Outdoors, Parenting, School, Guns.......

    I mean.. ;)

    "I got a new gun" types should be in subtalk.

    Gun laws or related crimes and discussion of such could be in MD. Maybe Other Discussions, subforum Guns. While most of them are about laws because it will always relate to the 2nd amendment, some are about effects or stories about misuse of guns.

    I agree that the "I got a new gun" threads should be in subtalk if there is no gun forum. I think as big as a topic that guns are here there should be a forum for it. As to where to put it, I'll leave that up to the experts. =) I think there should be a seperate forum for guns and hunting though. As some people might be interested in guns, but don't want to see dead animals or don't agree with guns being used for hunting.

    Ya we all know guns and kids are like chlorine and ammonia :rolleyes: I really hope this is not a way to silence pro-gun people (this was my first impression), by stuffing us in the corner and telling us to "stay over there and don't come out". I'm sure a lot of the anti-gunners would like that, but guns are still a political issue that I find just as important as the economy and the war.

    EDIT: Make a gun sub forum and I can get a ton more members :) Just throwing that out there.
