    A discussion thread in the Montana state section of the forum has apparently been closed without explanation. Several of the members are requesting an explanation in this thread:

    Not so. This is a private, rather than governmental, forum and there are no Rights here. The First Amendment says "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech..." Private entities may censor at will.

    I'm neither owner nor moderator, so I can't speak for them.

    But, it seems pretty obvious to me that the thread violated the forum rules.

    From the forum rules:

    ******************


    NOTE: This is not a general discussion web site - even the thread for "general discussions" must be fairly related to open carry,firearms and gun rights. Please police your own posts before posting them and help keep OCDO strong and focussed. If you think the post is questionable, please don't post it. Thanks!




    ******************

    2) Since we are a site dedicated to open carry,firearms and gun rights, all posts should relate substantially to one of these topics, even if your comments pertain mainly to freedom andliberty. OCDO is not a general discussion forum on polticis, religion, the current President, etc. Take that somewhere else!
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    That makes sense, Citizen.
