Could this be merged with Weapons?

Yes I think so! Firearms never made it out of beta the first time. Or the second or third times either. Weapons is a bit more broad, and so we'll be able to share our knowledge, and our userbase.

The Bone Yard. Question limbo, SE Rule boot camp, or low-quality purgatory. A place where questions go to die?

What you are asking for is not a Stack Exchange site. It's an overgrown chat room that that looks more like the magazine rack at a grocery store than a book shelf at Harvard. — Robert Scoble ...

Are naval vessels like destroyers and corvettes in scope?

Naval Vessels do contain weapons. After all, we wanted a Weapons community without really specifying what kind of weapons we can discussion about. Even if you use evidences : https://en.wikipedia.org/...

Would discussing how everyday items can be used as weapons be on topic?

Maybe. The scope is not settled enough yet. This is the kind of thing that gets brought up in meta, even several years later on a small public beta, when there is enough growth in the community to ...

Why this proposal is located in recreation?

Looking at the description and example questions, this proposal seems geared more towards a hobbyist/enthusiast community than something being built by a professional organization or society.

From the Weapons proposal here. I'm all for it - it seems like there are three proposals that are pretty much the same thing. It looks like your question is downvoted though - maybe someone should ...

Fantasy "weapons" are not in scope

I feel that to be in-scope a weapon has to have real objective characteristics that people can discuss, so if a movie uses a gun or a sword that's "fantasy" but is clearly modified real item, then it ...

Why there's no go (AKA baduk or weiqi) site?

It is generally covered under board games, and the tag sees very little use. Maybe there would be more traffic if it had its own site like chess has.
