74. Which would give your side of the argument an unfair advantage.

I always try my best to avoid linking to a ring-wing source, consequently I spend a LOT of my time searching for the same info I could post from a conservative site that also appears on a more unbiased web page. However sometimes there is no other choice. An editorial or information from a right wing site might well make an important point.

Many liberal sites can be just as biased as conservative sites and often publish false and misleading propaganda against firearm ownership.

In simple terms conservative sites often publish bullshit against gun control but many liberal sites publish bullshit in favor of gun control.

In order to develop an informed view on any topic it is important to carefully consider both sides of the argument.

If your suggestion was implemented, soon only articles from very liberal sites could be posted in the Gungeon. I believe that some here feel the MSNBC is the only honest cable network and even CNN is far too conservative.

I suspect that you really don't have any interest in debate and feel that anyone who might disagree with your viewpoint on gun control is a right-winger. Let me assure you that many liberal Democrats own firearms and firmly support RKBA and concealed carry. Would you wish to stifle their voices? I hope not. The Democratic party is and should be a BIG tent.
