    Whys is the Non-partisan PSA: machine guns, full-auto, semi-auto, assault weapons...

    Why is the Non-partisan PSA: machine guns, full-auto, semi-auto, assault weapons thread a sticky?

    It most certainly is partisan to have this as a sticky.

    This says volumes that it is.

    It's to educate people. What's partisan about the data contained therein?
    Individuals can not be reasoned out of beliefs they were not reasoned into.

    As I understand it, sticky threads are for information not comment and emotions.
    Now listen Donald, stay focused, hold it together. Put down the bucket of chicken. Stop tweeting. Go into the next bedroom. Get under the bed. Calm down. Now the next part is very important...

    Obviously it pro gun, we all know it. Educate is the excuse to have a partisan thread on top.


    We all know the differences but this is always used by the right to claim semis are OK, Semi auto is OK is the implied message.

    It's most decided partisan. If this is a partisan site so be it, say it and all is good. If not, take it off "sticky."

    It's a "tell."

    Are there sticky that are left biased? If so, fair. I have never noticed stickies much either way but when I ran across this I was pretty upset.

    What will it take to untrigger you? Did the facts presented in the stickie attack your preconceived notions about guns?

    Maybe the facts look like a bias to those who don't accept them?

    I already explained.

    It is implied that the issue is automatic weapons and that semi auto are OK.

    It's very cleaver and may well not have been done on purpose but anyone who has studied subliminal messaging knows exactly how that sticky is manipulating in favor of guns.

    Not at all, it's simply recognizing subliminal messaging.

    What would you change to make it neutral?
