    More Pro-gun support needed

    These Youtube pages could use some additional Patriotic support. Would you all be willing to help flood the channel with Pro-gun support and comments?

    Do you believe that the individual who is in charge of that video do not actually remove posts counter to his argument? total waste of time.

    Waste of time there. Reading through a few of the comments on there, I saw various "gaps" where a pro-gun comment was likely made.

    Funny thing about these types of people: they agree with your "Right" to speak your mind, so long as you parrot what they want to hear.

    I note reports that de-faced-boog is considering implementing a thumbs-down.

    The history of the pollice verso is interesting. Pollice comes to us as pollex/pollices being medical-Latin for thumb/thumbs, and verso just means turned.

    Juvenal wrote in his Satires (translated), "... and win applause by slaying whomsoever the mob with a turn of the thumb bids them slay." He does not specify up, down, horizontally or concealed inside the fist.

    The Jean-Léon Gérôme painting Pollice Verso was an inspiration of Ridley Scott's film Gladiator (one of my favorites).
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    Unfortunately, you are right. Looks like pro-gun comments are being deleted.

    At least hit the thumbs down to hurt his pride . Reading the comments, it appears the guy has been very proud of the thumbs-up likes.

    Agree that he doesn't come across in a positive/supportive way, but not all of the people in or from other countries are anti self defense/gun.

    A local member Scouser is from merry ol' England and contributes regularly to this forum.

    TrueBrit (RIP) was the consummate gentleman and wore his RKBA credentials over his heart.

    Scan the International Gun Rights section at the bottom of the main page to see some examples.
