    1) We control the House
    2) SCOTUS ruled the 2nd amendment is a RIGHT
    3) The Liberals are panicking as they lose their gun control narrative!
    4) Executive Order will accomplish nothing as obama has no authority to issue new law! He's out of place here and will easily lose any court battle!
    5) The gun control tide is losing steam and were winning the majority of all gun control polls, And the NRA is gaining as many as 8K new members a day!

    If you guys aren't familiar with NFA weapons now, better get familiar if this bill passes. :faint:
  4. Won't matter if this passes in its current form because it bans transfer outright. In other words, you must go through the NFA process to keep what you've got, but you won't be able to buy someone else's registered weapon.

    That said, this looks so onerous as to make it more difficult to get moderate votes. The worse the bill, the less likely it will get passed.

    Because the Republicans control the House, they can prevent any new legislation by simply doing nothing. Any new law has to be approved by both House and Senate. The far right wing of the party controls the House. Right now they are blocking the fiscal cliff legislation because they won't support a tax increase for people making over $1 million per year so I doubt they are going to cave to Democratic pressure on the issue of guns. If the pressure to "do something" continues into the Spring they can drag things out for another 6 months by holding committee hearings and then write a bill that deals solely with preventing the mentally ill from buying guns and forcing the Justice Dept. to actually prosecute people who lie on the 4473 form. It will be impossible to reconcile this bill with a Senate AWB bill so the whole thing will die.

    didnt we control the house when obama care was pushed through?

    didnt the scotus change obama care so that it fell as a tax instead?

    didnt obama use executive orders to change a lot of things while he holds the office?

    do you still believe that the house of reps will stay conservative?

    do you still believe the scotus will stand by the constitution and not revise it?

    do you still believe obama wont threaten others with executive orders and other things?

    dont be naive about the levels the democrats will sink to in order to get their way and change America from made it great.

    Famous last word.......Fact is 20 little kids were slaughtered, massacred, killed, however they want to portray it...Someone has to pay. It may not be now, but in 2 years when the reps loose the house(& they will because they are not catering to the minorities that voted for O) we will see something.

    While it was horrific, let's not forget it is rare. Here are the causes of death per 100,000 children between the ages of 5-14.
    4.1 - Unintentional Injury
    2.2 - Cancer
    0.9 - Congenital Anomalies
    0.8 - Homicide
    0.7 - Suicide
    0.5 - Heart Disease

    This data was from 2009. In the 2009-2010 school year there were 11 deaths, 7 were shootings, 1 fight related, and 3 stabbings. I'm doing some guess work based on some census data that there are about 48 million kids between the age of 5-14 in the US. So 0.00001458% of school children in that age range were killed on school grounds by a gun.

    Feinsteins ban is so bad nobody will vote for it, it will be back to the drawing board and theyll run out of steam. Republians wont vote for it, poilitical suicide for a republican. Remember the 94 ban? Both houses got taken by republicans. Democrats wont touch the bill if they care about reelection, it wont help them and they know we'll clear out congress.

    I truly believe people in the firearms owning community are severely under-estimating what is happening right now.

    We'll see.

    Some of us pay more attention than others.

    A lot of us remember the first AWB, and the political slaughter that followed the next mid-term election. A lot of Democrats remember this as well.

    Feinstein had this bill in her desk, and has probably proposed it every few months since the last AWB expired.

    A US Senator got shot in the face and it was just like this, where all you heard about for the next few weeks was "ban this" and "regulate that". Bills were proposed but were laughed at in Committee, they never made it to the floor for a vote. It was forgotten shortly after.

    VP Biden was put in charge of the effort, if that tells you anything about how serious Obama is about passing a ban :upeyes: Now, when nothing succeeds, he can tell the loonies on the Left "Well, I put the vice president in charge of this, if he couldn't get it done no one could have :whistling:"

    However unlikely you think it is, we must treat it as if it is a great threat. Our response to this proposal should be very clear and very loud.
