It is a general list, as it goes with the old addage, you can please some of the people some of the time. What some would find offensive, others would not.

I think it is time to educate some people. Ben81, you don't even know who the man in my avatar is. You see a man with a rifle with a scope. Who is he? His name was Gunnery Sgt. Carlos Hathcock. He served in Vietnam as a Marine sniper. He has the distinct record of 93 confirmed kills in Vietnam, one being over 2000 yards. His nickname in Vietnam was "white feather", from the dove's feather he wore in his boonie cap. He was so feared, that the vietcong had a million dollar bounty on him. Every Marine knows his name if you say it. He was well decorated and his kills saved 1000's of american lives in Vietnam. You have been educated.

OH.....I know the answer!!

Its because the theme of ATS is

"DENY IGNORANCE"

pictures of guns do not cause people to commit crimes (quite the opposite actually)

two times in my life allowing some one to get a picture of me with a firearm has stopped crime
