Over the past couple of weeks we seem to have an abundance of threads on topics like gun control legislation, gang violence or politicians busted for illegal guns, etc. that are being posted in the Tavern. These threads will elicit strong responses about topics that are suited for the Minefield. The mods have been moving the threads instead of simply closing or deleting them. Users need to give more thought to whether the thread belongs in the Minefield rather than just posting to the Tavern.
