Subject: Reality and our hobby

Just a word up...we can dislike Schwarz's ideas or views, but he IS entiled to them and I too think Tom was a bit harsh towards the originator of this post, that aside. In reality we deal with a majority of the US population that feels this hobby is a bunch of crazy weirdo gun-nuts...and if you know of mean prone to violent physical outburts, those men need to be roped in quickly. The is NO excuse in a civilized society for threat of bodily harm and to do so (except in jest) becuase of someone's words shows a very anti-social and disurbed behavior. Nothing would end this hobby than for someone to give our opponents the headlines they are dreaming of. I basically feel that anyone making phyiscal threats needs to do several things, including being blocked by the moderators. Schwarzs has a RIGHT to his opinions as guarenteed in our nation's 1st amendement...but a person DOES NOT have the right to physical violence nor threats of such. I am saddned by Fred's response that John should avoid events these men attend, rather Fred should be waroking to keep these same men from attending events. In reality all John has to do is print these posts, and if anything does happen to him he can have a restraining order issued against these men (who in their ignorance have made their threats public record and is supported by a third part..ie Fred) and those men will not be allowed tro attend events where Schwarz is registered!

This is my two cents...basically if you can behave like a civilized person, or make an intellegent argument against Schwarz and canonly threaten and terrorize to get your way then we need those people out of the hobby as they give us ALL a bad name.

Most Respectfully,
Christopher Fischer
