If ARs/AKs are banned, what will you arm yourself with?
 
I'm playing the devil's advocate.

Let's say a new AWB passes, which prohibits the ownership of ARs, AKs, and semi-auto military-style rifles with pistol grips and/or magazines over 10 rounds. From this point forward, you cannot buy/sell/own any of these rifles.

What kind of weapon would you use in it's place?

The most lethal thing that comes to my mind is like a Ruger Scout Rifle. Is there maybe a better choice?

Mini 14 or M1 Carbine.

Of what I have, M-1 carbine , SKS, Mini 14, Mini 30.

Don't you think all those guns would be banned under the AWB terms??

M1903A2 and M1 Garand with bayonet!! I'll tell AWB folks how we won WW1 and WW2!!! Maybe I'll wrap the barrels with bacon for the better taste! Muhahaha!

vafish 12-22-2012 20:42

Lots of options, pump action, lever action, semi auto with a fixed mag like the M1 Garand.

I would go to my Springfield M1A under the circumstances you have provided and use 10 round mags in it.

Your question makes the false assumption that people will comply with a ban.

...and that any such ban would make it illegal to own one that was bought before the ban.

So no detachable mag semi-auto rifles? I'd take the money the government gives me for taking them and buy something like the Ruger Scout and a good lever action or two - pump shotguns are also very high on the list. How about those pump .223 rifles Ruger had a while back?

This is a theoretical question, and a hypothetical ban could state anything it wants. I put nothing past this outrageous government.

will likely require registration as proof like they did in kali. and that's the 1st step in confiscation

concretefuzzynuts 12-22-2012 21:46

Calm down people.

If this were to take place I have a stash of sharpened sticks and throwing rocks.

Jeeeze!

cowboy1964 12-22-2012 21:46

What, no one has recommended a 12 gauge pump yet?? There are some that think that rules NOW, even before a assault rifle ban.

Durden 12-22-2012 21:52

I doubt any significant legislation will get passed (for a variety of political & statistical reasons), but if any legislation looks as if it will pass & ostensibly ban the purchase of ARs and/or AKs (subject to judicial challenges), I'll make it a point of principle to purchase one of these immediately (it only has a 1o round magazine, too!):

If they outlaw my AR with pistol grip, I'll just remove the pistol grip. Pistol grips are "cool factor" but accuracy suffers with 'em anyway. Then I'm legal and more deadly.:cool: Talking about the front vertical BTW. Now what to do about the rear grip???
