Ron

Thank-you for the measured response, it was the right thing to do.


Now that we have you attention, how about those member badges?  ;)

Chris
Yeah, how about those badges?  I see two people on this thread have them but nobody else.

Unless I'm wrong, I believe badges are assigned individually as opposed to globally.

In order to assign badges each user profile needs to be modified to add the badge. On top of this, each member needs to be verified as a member and that info is more than likely in a separate database.

Thanks for the badge Ron. Sorry if I came across a bit strong the last few days.  My wife says I'm 'passionate'.  :)

Thanks Ron,

I think Politics is another "no no" that should be on your list.

Tragically, because of leftist idiots politics will have an affect on our vehicles and ability to use them they do have a place here at times They have been plotting for some time to tax them and limit use. Some states have already done so. There have been several bills that didn't quite make it, but close. 
Then Ron takes down a post because another disillusioned individual here decides that those of us with legal carry should have their rights violated by the SAAC.
at any rally or meet.  Really? TDS is a mental illness. It's what started the exchange.
I am federally licensed. It doesn't matter what your preferences are, they don't apply to me or those who carry. I carry under HR 218 as well and onto the flight deck EVERY time I fly.  It's to make sure those in my charge are safe. I have carried ALL my adult life between military service, law enforcement and as a retired CHP. After 911 many of us carry on board. It's FOR YOUR safety as well.
It's always someone from NY or CA.  Brainwashed sheep.
That is why I was angry and Ron didn't have the audacity to explain or reply in messages when I questioned his decision to remove one person's comments and not the instigator. Funny, both are from NY so likely the same mental mindset.

I'll give you a pass on this one post.. to make some points publicly.

First, SAAC can't violate your rights.. and when you are on this forum.. you waive quite a few rights.
It's our forum and we make the rules.... don't like them? Sorry.

I don't need to moderate with audacity.. I am quite peaceful and rarely get agitated by what anyone says...like now.

Your whole post is out of line and really needs to be said elsewhere.
Try not to be a such a geo-bigot if you plan to stay here.

Geo-bigot. Now that's hysterical. Nice label. My daughter lives in NY. My wife is from NY and I spent 37 years of my life in Commiefornia.  My statements about the state of affairs that puts those who gave nothing and invade this nation in front of those who served the state and the nation and were injured in the line of duty is spot-on. I served with honor and distinction for a SECOND time with an oath to serve and protect ALL Citizens.  I honored it. However, I have spent 20 years in litigation for what was owed me.
Perhaps you may actually try being sympathetic to my plight.
I gave you an opportunity to speak with me privately when this first reared it's ugly head. You elected not to, nor even respond to my message in PM.
Then Shelby Doug spewed his crap about how the SAAC would be at risk to allow people like me to exercise their right to carry at an event. You deleted my comments and left Doug's blathering response.
Perhaps you should apologize for your bigoted biased views of rights asserted by the Constitution of The United States and licenses issued locally and federally.
I won't allow you or anyone else to minimize my ability to respond.
I am not here to stir the pot, but you even allowed 427 Heaven's Trump Derangement Syndrome to stay up. I simply responded. I know you personally don't like me, and I actually don't care. I paid in BLOOD for what you and so many others take for granted.
Now I am done with this providing it dies. If you want to converse I'd be glad to do so via private message or I'll even call you.

If you're going to apply rules they apply to all, not just those you agree with.
