    Sadly, this is inevitable.
    After the JFK, MLK and RFK assasinations in the 60's, we got the 1968 Gun control act. Prior to that, you could actually order rifles through the mail without paperwork. I got my first Marlin 39A delivered to my house (I was 13) by Parcel Post from a catalog business. No FFL, no dealers.
    That ended.
    This last tragedy has provoked Soccer mom's and Nancy boys from all across the States who generally never even thought about firearms prior to this situation.
    they are demanding action. The best we can hope for is a limited further restriction on our 2nd amendment rights.
    I hate, it, but it is what it is.

    I think TSP had it right today. The fear is not in the Feinstein bill, it's what compromises that the democrat lites are going to give Feinstein.

    Hi cap mags are gone. Possible registation of existing guns into some new Class 3 type special category, etc, etc.

    A meaningless E-mail, I think an executive order is more likely, perhaps there will be a "compromise" bill... If there is, it will mean repubs swept out in 2014 and us as fun owners will assure them their feet will be held to the fire, so I doubt any compromise bill will be passed.

    That said anything can happen and we have to keep fighting, don't roll over and play dead, get back in the fight!

    I'm not giving up a damn thing. You want me to pay taxes? Then leave me the hell alone. If not put me in jail and take care of me, I'll just carry high capacity shanks then.

    Hate to say it... well no, I don't. Told you they would cave here to. Listen get it through your heads we are done with all political avenues. They have not existed for the last 12 years or more. What's happened is an acceleration of this reality. We have only two options left and I don't like either of them, but that's what's on the table.

    Our "elected" officials are all in the same boat, they all answer to the same master and really, they don't care about we the people. It's about a final power grab and the initiation of 1932 all over. That is the reality and it sucks. I have been saying this for some time, but I either get called a tin foiler or ignored. The bull is most definitely in the China shop and we can't ignore it anymore.

    Big shock...:upeyes:

    And this is just the beginning. The GOP is in this mode of 'we must broaden our tent to welcome more people'. The reality is the GOP lost because the country went through a transition where the parasites have taken over. Now the GOP is working to give away more rights, forfeit any resemblance to ideals in managing the economy, etc.

    Yea, I am writing my reps tonight...but we're done as a country. It's just a matter of time before we all realize it.

    I have written my representative. I am confident he will vote against ANY anti-civil rights (2nd Amendment) legislation. Congressman McClintock http://www.tommcclintock.com/

    Tom is a hard core conservative, voted against the fiscal cliff deal and has a long history (30 + years) of promoting pro-2nd Amendment issues, while fighting anti-civil rights (anti 2nd amendment) nonsense in the public realm

    This is Washington we're talking about and it often takes them months to do anything.I don't put much stock at all in one email.
    How do we know what every Republican in the House is thinking from one dubious email?

    Btw,who is Doc Thompson.

    Because it is consistent with the current GOP strategy that has been reiterated by several...'we must broaden our tent to include more people'.

    I have said and still think some form of new AWB is gonna happen, if not now then in 2014/15. But this linked "story" shows/proves nothing.
