    In light of the recent gun tragedy mass shooting tragedies that have happened, do you see a resurgence of support for a new AWB?
    Unfortunately my College Town, Tuscaloosa, Alabama has been affected as well!:crying::crying::faint:

    The usual cast of buffoons and shills i.e., Diane Slimestain, Yucky Chuckie Shumer, Caroline McCarthy et all will again beat the drums for another round of useless sanctions/restrictions that affect only the law abiding. Criminals will continue to get plea bargains or dismissals because the courts are too crowded with other low lifes.

    Gun control doesn't work. The liberals hide under screams of privacy so they don't catch the mentally disturbed like Loughner and what was his name, Choi at VA Tech. THEY should have been prevented from a legal buy but heavens knows, we the public have no right to know they're disturbed, right? :upeyes:

    Don't think Congress has any stomach for more anti gun operations. Don

    I'd say the left will likely make a push for it after the coming election.

    I agree. They won't touch gun control until after the election. It would be political suicide if they did otherwise.

    However, be prepared!

    Not to hijack but you are predicting an Obama win? I unfortunately am.

    As for Mag Capacity restrictions they will make a push and it will have no effect on crime

    ^ NO, not another 4 years !
    Remember their mantra "never let a good crisis go to waste" The libs will push for a ban
    an make it extremely difficult for the conservatives to vote no. They'll be pushed in to the proverbial corner and have to vote for a ban or look unsympathetic to the victims.

    Just my prediction...

    No. Neither side is ecstatic about their candidate so it will come down to whatever issue is hot at the time. Obama has alienated a lot of voters and I'm hoping he keeps it up.

    As far as the gun issue goes, it doesn't really matter who wins.

    I never understood the whole mag capacity thing. It takes under a second to drop a mag and slam home a new one. Criminals will just carry more mags

    Have you written and called your local and state government and told them your position? Congressmen? Senators? If not- Go. Now. :cool:

    I think Mr. Obama will say not a word about gun control until the 2nd week of November.
    I wish he would, because this would swing the last voters away form him, but he knows better.
    No matter what the outcome of the election, he will slam one executive order after the next after the election.

    But he will have the entire republican organization influencing his decisions. . . pro gun groups will actually have access to him.

    Obama has Sarah Brady and Pelosi. . .

    There is no appetite for new restrictions, at least on the national level. Which is absolutely amazing considering who is running things.

    Mitt signed the assault weapons ban in Mass. There are a lot of Dems and Indepentant voters that have guns. I would bet money in Vegas that no matter who wins not much will change gun control wise. Gun control right now is a losing issue.

    If they impose a ban on mag capacity, I'll switch to belt feed.

    It will be slipped in with the ban on sweetened drinks above 16.oz.
