1. I would like to be a host for: Gun Control Reform Activism (Group)

I hate seeing all of the unnecessary killing.
I'd like to help in some way.

2. Awesome! We did it!

Our SOP:

Discuss how to enact progressive gun control reform in a supportive environment. The group serves as a safe haven in which to mobilize supporters in support of measures reducing gun violence by changing laws, culture and practice at the municipal, state, and federal levels. While there is no single solution to the tragic epidemic of gun violence, members agree that more guns are not the solution to gun violence, and are expected to be supportive of the policies of progressive gun control reform organizations.


I think we're going to need a few hosts and we should probably have a process of some sort for accomplishing this with good order. We should definitely give it a few days so people find their way here.

5. Thanks for getting this separate area, much appreciated.

 

I think you should be the sole host of this area, and in doing so, make sure you are dilligent in keeping those out who should not be here.
Also, be extremely careful in adding any additional hosts without extreme search.
Have the final say, and be careful about delegating equal powers to others.

And it goes without saying, use your powers as host, and as part of the rules of this group/forum as to what stays, and what goes, which is different than say the GD.

Also would use the block function that is there. Be santa claus like in using it.
(Wayne LaPeanutJob probably mans the net himself with 1000 bots at his service 24/7/365).

Track records are easy to find.
Thankfully then, the same old, same old won't derail every single idea of acheiving something on the road to acheiving all.

And after all, the nra pro-gun soundbytes, why are they even necessary? The NRA always says nothing will change and its useless. If that is the case, why do they attempt to derail
any and all civil discussion with their really nasty disruptive hateful against those that have the misfortune to be shot and hurt or killed (seems like 35 a day dead, and who knows how many more hundreds a day wounded) and those wishing it would stop.

Why don't the pro-NRA, pro-Gun people just ignore it, if they were so sure nothing is changing?

oh, wait, because they indeed are sweating that their day is coming fast to a close.
It took hundreds of years to get here, so it won't be instant,but sometime in the next decade, it will happen.
Why do 35 or more a day have to die (and 100s a day wounded) til we see that happen?

The best way will be through changing the candidates and the courts.
Support the Mayors against Gun Violence (which is something the pro-NRA, pro-Gun people hate more than anything, because they see that it is working very well, and will work well in 2014 and 2016 and beyond. Don't let them cite phony polls saying otherwise.

Major Hint- (though most don't need to be told this)-
Make the titles of all the new threads and posts count.
They are google searchable, and people far and wide read this board, and see titles before looking at posts. So think of titles are real estate or classified ad listings-
catch the person's attention right from the start with a greatly worded title of each thread and post, that straight out says what is in the post.
If this area gets popular, many outside here will be led to reading here. So make it count.

6. I am glad we finally have a gun law forum where Tea Party rallies will not be promoted

I tried many times to take on some of the nuts in that forum and I saw them promoting a Tea Party rally, I saw them cheering on the five right-wing majority members of the Supreme Court, they endorsed recalls of Democrats who supported gun control, they bragged about giving guns to kids, they encouraged shoot to kill in cases in which it was clearly not necessary to self defense, that forum is a total cess pool. I am glad to see a forum in which we can discuss the issue without being swarmed by angry gun nuts.

We may have disagreed on a number of issues in the past Wyldwolf and we will likely continue to disagree in the future, but I at least know that you and the others who are populating this forum so far are not going to be promoting blood shed and we can have rational debates.

8. I appreciate the vote of confidence for being host... but...

... I think any number of people would be great hosts. Robb, ellisonz, BainsBane. While I think I'd do a great job, I'm not certain I'd have the time to be the ONLY host. The issue is so raw with people we'll need more than one host. Up to three would be my suggestion.
