    I think it'll still be a little bit more before the bubble bursts.

    Im with tbo here. There absolutely can be easy background check requirements without registration. It would be difficult to enforce but possible.

    I agree that it is of course possible.

    I believe though that after two or three years of universal background checks in the absence of registration there would inevitably occur some incident involving a gun sold during that period...
    An incident involving a gun sold in a private sale for which a background check was not performed.

    The antis and the media would then raise every possible kind of hell to insist that registration is absolutely necessary.

    True enough.

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/201...orcing-any-future-gun-laws-a-felony-in-texas/

    "Any future federal laws passed by Congress or executive orders imposed by President Barack Obama aimed at restricting the ownership of semi-automatic guns or limiting the size of magazines will be considered illegal in Texas — that is, if a newly proposed bill makes it through the Texas legislature.

    GOP Rep. Steve Toth said he plans to introduce the “Firearms Protection Act,” which calls for felony criminal charges to be filed against any federal official who tries to enforce new gun-restricting regulations in the Lone Star State.

    “If a federal official comes into the state of Texas to enforce the federal executive order, that person is subject to criminal prosecution,” Toth told 1200 WOAI’s Joe Pags Tuesday.

    Federal officials would face a $50,000 fine and up to five years in prison for attempting to enforce a federal gun ban, according to Toth.

    “It is our responsibility to push back when those laws are infringed by King Obama,” Toth said.

    More from WOAI:

    Toth says he will file his measure after speaking with the state’s Republican Attorney General, Greg Abbott, who has already vowed to fight any federal measures which call for restrictions on weapons possession.
    Toth concedes that he would welcome a legal fight over his proposals.
    “At some point there needs to be a showdown between the states and the federal government over the Supremacy Clause,” he said.
    The Supremacy Clause is the portion of the Constitution which declares that federal laws and statutes are ‘the supreme law of the land.’
    The proposed legislation comes less than a week after Wyoming lawmakers proposed a similar measure to protect the state from future federal gun control laws."



    Texas is a whole different breed of gun owner and culture than NY.

    Glenn Beck wrote a wonderful fable about this called The Overton Window - very much worth the read.

    Shouldn't the title of this thread be 'The panic of 2013 begins Wednesday'?

    So, between the panic that ends Tuesday, and the panic that begins Wednesday, did anybody find any bargains?

    Like a midnight sale? :rofl:

    I guess we will see soon what happens.

    Almost bought a Ruger American .30-06 today. I guess I can wait since that is not in jeopardy.

    Is it some sort of firearm, magazine, ammunition, or other firearm related accessory? If so, it's probably in jeopardy.

    Sure hope all they announce is heavier background checks. Otherwise, prepare for a fight for our rights.

    From "asset forfeiture" laws, to podunk sheriff departments taking grants of military vehicles and weapons from Homeland Security, police have become more predisposed to aggressive, immediate violence at the slightest provocation.

    Any whiff of "contempt of cop" gets you tazed, cuffed and charged with felony obstruction. Spend some time on YouTube, and you'll see ghastly over reactions to minimal provocation by police towards citizens, especially minorities.

    Even something as banal as "Cops" shows evidence of this:

    Reruns from the late 1980s show officers talking and diffusing situations, but busting skulls when needed. Today's episodes show SWAT teams kicking in doors to serve child support warrants.

    Boys and their toys they say, and the "War on Terror" has certainly brought lots of new goodies and not very subtle incentives to the job.

    It is possible to be so close to the forest as to not see the trees.

    New York was the first to pass mandatory seatbelt laws in the 1980s.

    How many states now have this same "safety" provision in their revenue, er traffic, laws?
