Be timely. Look at the date the original news article was posted. If it was posted more than 3 days ago, it's probably been more or less fully discussed and died a natural death.

Skim over the main page of at least General Gun Discussions and Legal. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't, particularly if someone uses a particularly unhelpful title like "Check this out!".

Search. This is by far the most powerful method. Use the search engine (or Google using the +site: command) and search for unique words from the article. Last names are good as are certain city names. Try 2 or 3 words, since sometimes names of people or places are omitted.


These steps won't prevent all duplicate posts, but will help.
