    does any body see an upcoming assault weapon ban in the foreseeable future with a new coming presidential election? what happens to all our riffles during a ban? what happened to people who owned black riffles before the clinton ban? did they get to keep them or did some atf agent show up at their doors like "um.... there's a ban now, give me all your riffles." ? just something i was pondering today. stupid questions, i know. just some scary thought i was having today. im interested to hear what you think.

    Don't see it happening. Even if Obama gets re-elected, the Democrats wont have the votes to get it passed and onto the president's desk. Even if they somehow managed to pass one, any current rifles would have to be grandfathered in.

    Even obama, is smart enough, not to mess with the only industry, reaching astronomical sales increases since his election. Perhaps I am giving him way to much credit, but I'm sure, he doesn't want to see rioting in the streets!

    I remember watching C-Span the Congress vote for crime bill (AWB) as Speaker of the House Tom Foley took it upon himself to extend the vote time limit as Feinstein ran around pleading for yea votes.

    Actually it did. It woke up a lot of people. Just like the Obomnation’s reign of socialism has. Sometimes The People need a good swift kick in the nads to get them to get off their dufs and show the politicians who REALLY has the powder. Oops! Freudian slip. I meant power. :supergrin:

    I don't think that we dare let down our guard. If not an AWB, then some other onerous law. Just because the anti-gun crowd have been temporarily beaten back, that does not mean that they have given up. Maybe, the next thing that they will try is ammo bans under the guise of reducing lead pollution. They have already been floating those ideas and even getting them into law in California. Remember they can lose and lose again and keep coming back. We only have to lose once to, perhaps, lose it all. And, never think that it is about crime. It is about control over us.

    Don't worry about a AWB worry about the EPA outlawing your ammo! They're working on lead bans, in effect in many places already! And now gun owners are helping them by promoting leadfree ammo! Look for increased Hazmat fees - higher ammo taxes etc. They'll just price it out of existance!:steamed:

    Another AWB is possible if O'bumble is elected for another term. Tax on ammo....Ban on lead ammo.....also possible.

    Gun registration is our greatest fear, IMHO. The Feds are desperate to know who owns a gun in this country.

    Yah, that’s what they thought during Katrina. A Maritime lawyer stood in front of TV cameras in his yard and pretty much told the JBT to try it. The JBT WERE standing back in the street watching and discussing. They didn’t! Funny how easily they took them from the sheep and little old ladies but knew better than to try with others.

    You only have those freedoms you are willing to fight for. They will never try to forcefully take them from all of The People, only the sheeply. They WILL do as Gunnut has said. We've been saying that for some time. They have gotten ranges closed, hazmat fees imposed, no led shot for duck hunting and they just keep on keeping on. They keep taking baby steps and before we know it they will have taken the farm. Think maybe it's time to write your congressman and tell him / her enough is enough?

    :offtopic: Did the farmers ever get the water turned back on in Comyfornia? That story / coverage seemed to just go away. Like Glen Beck! :dunno:

    With an AK47 being used in yesterday's IHOP shooting, I'd expect the antis to started demanding a new AWB.

    And since NG/Military members were killed in that attack, I'd expect some RINO's to jump on the bandwagon!

    Never Say Never!

    There are no hoarders here, just avid collectors. It really is a shame that so many have lost firearms do to boating accidents. I personal donate to the homeless. I have receipts from John Doe, Prince Albert and Come Angittum. One of my favorite rifles I’m going to give to Overmy Deadbody. :whistling: :supergrin:
