    I haven’t been around in awhile and came back here to discuss some items coming down the pike. And, it looks like all the threads on gun bills and whatnot are no longer around? Also seems HR was moved or sold? Can someone update me here?

    What's "HR"?

    A lot of proposed anti gun legislation ends up in General or Legal depending upon the emphasis. Until the midterms there wasn't anything that was going to come out of the House or get through the Senate on the federal level so there wasn't much to talk about. The same Antis proposed the same tired old Anti bills that died. It made for a very, perhaps too, comfortable "They'll continue to whine and howl and they'll continue to be shut out." On the state level, the states that were subject to such change were discussed, but those that were solidly pro2A weren't going to move so that narrowed the topics.

    NOW that the midterms are over and the House and Senate are split we'll see a lot more proposed federal legislation out of the House, but with the Senate more clearly pro 2A due to gains nothing is likely to go anywhere for a real fight.

    The States are now where 2A issues will heat up and those discussions can get pretty heated. Some Governor's races shifted power from pro2A Governors to Anti and that's going to make for struggles for us. Narrow wins in FL and GA for pro 2A incumbents shouldn't make us complacent. The wins were narrow enough that there's no mandate for either Governor.

    THR has a high traffic volume, there are a lot of threads posted, each one added will, eventually, "bury" any topic that is not kept current through new postings within it.
    Even fascinating threads eventually fade away.
    Just the nature of the way fora work, really.

    Nothing's changed with THR since you were here in March other than what we've pointed out.

    OP may be referring to the banner on the top of the page that states THR has moved. Its the same THR, just on a new server as I understand it. I also agree that there just hasn't been much discussed about ne bills lately, but there will be soon. Too soon.

    H.R. as in reference to house resolution or bills coming down the pike. Seems like there used to be a sticky thread that was updated with any and every antigun bill introduced that used to keep people abreast of the situation. I am no longer seeing that anywhere.

    See above for what I was referring to. There also used to be a resources thread that held reference and source material to combat antigun issues. It contained permanent sources and stats on gun crime, CDC findings and even times where guns were used for good and was consistently updated. It was a great resource to come to in order to teach others that not everything they hear on the TV is true. Wonderful resource for combatting those pesky antigun friends and family. Surely, I am just overlooking these threads somehow.
