    just totally ignore them.  I wonder what the counter move to being ignored is.  Mostly, I would really like to see some of the reasonable gun owners here form an alternative group to NRA.  It's been bandied about and I think it would be a powerful tool.  Education, safety, ethics, morals - they could help in all these areas.

    •  ignoring is great (10+ / 0-)

      But they almost Immediately show up as group, all belong to rbka so it's coordinated, and some of them then spam, troll, flame and goad trying to shut down the discussion. It's a small tiny group,, the same 20 or less names, but that are in every gc diary tryin g to shut and shout it down. Bullies who all say that carry guns who then cry people are mean to them. It's bizarro world.bbut they make ignoring them hard because it's a swarm.

        •  They drive other people out of the discussion (0+ / 0-)

          And that was a deliberate strategy: make the subject so toxic that nothing can ever get done.

          But I think they haven't figured out that a number of us are determined to have that discussion now anyway. Finally.

          And I do think it is also time to call out the bully tactics. Those have got to stop as well.

          •  Yes, although I got bullied for calling out the (0+ / 0-)

            bully tactics.  They are much better right now.  I suppose that won't last.
