Over at New Trajectory, I pointed out that "assault weapons" are functionally equivalent to hunting rifles.
Of course, Baldr replied that they weren't.
I then posted a quite polite post asking him to show exactly how they were not functionally equivalent. That never got published.
Then Jadegold, jumping on my initial post, made a snarky comment.
I repeated my comment that had been eaten.
Again, not published.
I tried one last time with a more extensive comment. We'll see if that gets through. If not, it seems that Reasoned Discourse is definitely in effect.
Update: Apparently third try is the charm.
