    How do you think the stink from that ATF fiasco, is going to affect all of us, in our day-to-day gun buying and sales? Any way at all, or to early to tell?

    I will have no effect at all. It wasn’t done by one of us peons so there’s no way to spin it that it’s the “guns” fault. It’s a government agency so in the eyes of the Gummyment (law ?) they can do no wrong. The Gumyment never does! :upeyes: No one gets punished and business goes on as usual. :whistling:

    Similar to Obama's getting elected. A lot of people will assume it's just the way to back-door gun control (and there's no reason to think it isn't) and buy the guns they want NOW, thinking they may not be legally available soon.
    I bought my two AK's this year both after "F and F" went public. Since i live in California and you never know what anti-gun measure the dummies running our state (into the ground) are going to ram through next.

    If this gets big enough (it's still growing), we could even see a push to defund or dismantle the ATF, either in part or whole. This could really come to happen if Obama loses reelection, and Republicans gain control of the Senate.
