Too much infighting

Gunners: there’s too much infighting going on in our USCCA community here. Too many threads are devolving into back and forth between a small handful of people. The meme thread is wrecked with a holy war right now (gentlemen, PLEASE STOP), and many of the other threads are going the same direction, some on immigration, some on politics, some on the quality of the USCCA, and on and on.

We’re on the same team. Cut it out. It’s not good for anyone, and doesn’t accomplish anything but split us apart. Brother @Don102 has said it best. They, the enemies of our rights, and freedoms, and American way of life, want us divided and fighting among ourselves.

Please stop.

Is that really what you see? Holy smokes…that’s not what I see at all, and I’ve been here a long time.

The meme thread is hardly wrecked. It is just a hiccup where some people believe that they’re open and inclusive…but they aren’t and they’re struggling with that. Sounds human to me. Not everyone likes looking in the mirror instead of requoting things they’ve been told or read. This happens a lot when folks move through their lives in herds instead of…thinking, or at least listening. I’m hoping that they’ll pull through better for it. Truly.

Bravo @Joseph488 … and good luck with trying to change anything…

I was pointing to that problem few years ago… I was almost crucified that time…
Once this Community has become an another social media… there is no coming back. it’s too late. :face_with_diagonal_mouth:
Unfortunately there is nobody who can control posts anymore…

Fairly new to USCCA and I maybe a little slow to pick things up but I am under a slight impression that one of USCCA guiding principles is deescalation. Maybe I’m wrong. :smiley:

I just wish that as a pro-2A community, we could all get along. We can agree to disagree and respect others’ ideas and prospective. We as a community always seem to be our own worst enemy fighting ourselves more than those who want to restrict our rights.

think it would be good to also remember there are people being paid to stir the waters…

I replied a few times in a way I thought was polite and not an attack…

seems like I was ignored??? No replies were given…

so I stopped trying to discuss the issue and just continued to post…

for me I have just chosen to ignore the continual complaints…

I have had so many blocked or removed post… WAIT… I blame all politicians for that!!!

ya!!!

Even if you succeed in getting yourself pointed in the right direction it doesn’t mean anyone else will follow;)

That whole free will thing can create all sorts of chaos:)

Your sooo right. I can only control myself. I can’t control others. If I would have been a better person maybe more people would have followed.
