Default We cant post news about politicians?

I had posted a news story in OT about the Az congresswoman who was shot today. I even put a disclaimer not to get political about this, and the post was deleted without a pm or anything. I understand our rules about political threads, but this was a news story. I linked the original articles and everything. So I am not really sure why it was deleted.

in any case, yeah, been following the news. 6 dead last I saw and the congresswoman in critical condition. Every time these senseless acts of violence occur, I just have to shake my head and wonder

Yeah. 1 a judge and one a 9 year old girl. And considering the bullet passed through her brain, if she survives, she wont be the same either.

And just last year Arizona made it legal for any one not a felon to carry a concealed weapon.....no training or permit required.

Douglas I like what you did, I read it and wonder what could be going on in that persons mind to get him to do something like that. I kind of understand why they took it down but I don't think you did anything wrong.

Yeah. Had was talking to someone via pm. I can understand the strategy. A fire doesnt start, if you dont give it a chance to go. Was still kinda surprised.

And thanks. I was trying to keep it as anti political as I could. Just to focus on what happened. Not the whys. I figured that would be handled in the political section.

Haven't heard or read where he got the gun.
In NH....you can't get a gun if...
-you've been convicted of a felony
-have a restraining order against you
-have been ordered to seek psychological treatment by a judge
Sometimes records are sealed, esp. if someone is underage when they commit a crime. I disagree with that.

Thats pretty much standard in every state.

Also if one has a DV (domestic violence) conviction will bar one from legally owning a firearm.
