Whether or not it offends people to consider increased carrying of firearms as a solution to the current TSA woes, I would like to know if people seriously consider it a "derail".
I have a "colorful" history on Metafilter, no argument there. But I find myself increasingly annoyed by a very small number of people frequently telling me not to derail a thread, in response to an on-topic idea they don't like for personal or ideological reasons.
