Gay Regional Message Board

When I graduated from Uni, three of us got a flat together. It was the easiest transition from the "cloistered" world of Uni and getting out on our own by sharing expenses.

You're not yet 18, right? And yet you own several firearms, including an automatic one "an [sic] Chinese SKS, [and] a Beretta semi auto shotgun," and I presume you own them legally. Right? So is there really any age restriction on owning a firearm, or is it controlled by the sale of ammunition?

im 18

Not a fan of guns, either, but I know people aren't going to give them up, so we can only reach a compromise.

I believe that people in urban areas should be restricted to one handgun per adult, whereas rural areas may have a rifle per adult.

Of course, if there are kids under a certain age (say, 13), then there should be NO guns in the household, as there's a great danger involved, especially since there are many irresponsible adults who don't know how to properly secure their guns.

I think that is a decent compromise.

Alternative viewpoint: If you're renting, that's money you're literally spending to live somewhere, except there's no end date in sight. You can rent for decades on end and still be no closer to ending those housing payments than you were the day you began. Mortgage payments may be expensive, but once you've paid the blasted thing off you can start building some savings and a nest egg, either for your next (bigger) house, or for your eventual retirement.

To that end, there's no shame in starting off with a really small place, as long as it's something you think you can pay off quickly. I know I'm looking at a place that's way out in the hinterland for $89,000, but it'll take less than half a decade to pay the mortgage off. After that, I'm literally saving about $2,000/month that I can spend on any other thing in the world I want.

I thought this too. Why pay rent when I can own.... But you meet someone and realize this isn't where I am supposed to be anymore. rent can be high, but at least you are not responsible for all The Plethora of things that could go wrong.

Hey guys. I am speaking on behalf of the region "European Continent" which was invaded by DEN. It is part of a very old roleplaying community that I have been a part of for over 7 years known as Nationstates World Regions. Our other regions are "Middle East", "American Continent", "African Continent", and "Asian Continent".

After trying to find ways to get the region back under community control, I was informed of defender regions. I had to search around, but once I saw the defender tag on a region, I knew what I needed to do.

This is my alternate nation. My main nation is Sedulion in European Continent. I ask everybody that can to join the WA, move to the European Continent, and to vote for my nationstate, Sedulion, as the WA Delegate so I can regain control of it for my community, secure it, and change it back to how it was before. The members in my community's forums are so panicked that they are thinking of just creating a new region. I would rather not see a region we created as part of our community and have had for several years lost to us.

Thank you very much in advance. I will be posting this in the regional boards of other defender tagged regions.

1) They are tagged as defender, without having a real defender. Banyuwangi (see forum) was the last one and was banned during a defender mission.
The founder (WAD) told that nation that he don't provide any help, there is even no defender forum or closed section. Gay is NO defender region.

2) Why does the WAD nothing ?

3) Seek advice on The FRA, link on the WFE in 'Gay'

Before I got banned I'm away, it is only the true that hurts...

Dear Inanisi,

I empathize with your plight. Gay coordinates its defender activities through the Founderless Regions Association, the FRA. They are the first link on our list of embassies. When they contact us about when to strike, WA nations from Gay will be there. A scattershot approach is unlikely to succeed, as a raider delegate can banject defender nations as they arrive; only if a bunch of defenders arrive at once can we hope to liberate European Continent.

Sincerely,
--LGBT Equality, Founder of Gay
