    i dont want a ban, and i myself love the dreaded " BLACK RIFLE" but some of you guys are freaking out to much..

    if it happens it happens but the gunstores will still be open the next day...and if i cant spend a grand on a AR ill spend it on a good bolt action with a nice peice of glass..or a lever action with a nice trigger job..

    some idiot told me today that the goverment wants him to be defenseless in whitch i said "you can always buy something other then a semi"..he looked at me like i was speaking russian..he couldnt fathom it

    Oh it is gonna get hot in here I think :)

    Objectively you are right, shooting sports and self defense won't go away totally with a new AWB. They did not last time. But it is not a concession that needs to be made.

    If you typed it, I see why he couldn't. Punctuate. Capitalize the first letter of a sentence. Learn the correct use of they're/there/their. Learn the correct use of which/witch. Learn lose versus loss. What happens with no grandfather clause? What happens when they don't stop at AR's?

    I dont see how it could even pass the senate or the house. As dumb as obama is with his skirting of the law i seriously doubt he could issue some sort of executive order or if he could that it couldnt promptly be overturned. So how does a new awb happen?

    Personally I think they are too dopey to get anything done... The hard liner anti crowd will go too far with their demands, the more reasonable anti gun crowd will attach too much other legislation to what they try to pass, and the pro second amendment crowd will (hopefully) slow down the train wreck and let the usual outcome prevail...nothing.

    Its not about semi auto being a right. Its about having the same technology (or better) than your assailant. Assailant being a home invader or a tyrannical government it doesnt really matter does it. If a bad guy comes to your property with an illegal obtained firearm that he got off the black market (aka the streets where many guns did not get turned in by bad guys) then you need an equal level firearm.

    This is why you need a semi auto and not a pump or lever action etc etc.

    I dont mind having single action cowboy guns if we all have them as an equal playing field but Im guessing a bad guy or tyrants will not be using them.

    A democrat majority in both chambers and even with that it was extremely painful for them and barely passed. Clearly they dont have a majority in the house now.

    2014 ain't far away though. Could be a game changer...

    I might have to buy "The Rifleman" on DVD to brush up on my lever action skills :)

    2014? I assume youre talking about mid term elections? Democrats will get crushed just like in 2010 because most democrats only turn our for the presidential election.

    I was and I hope you are right. But it could turn towards the Dems. It is not a sure thing that the Republicans hold much less crush the dems.

    So you'll be content with a single-shot shotgun once they've whittled away a little more?

    Or a knife once they've banned ALL firearms?

    Or your fists once knives are banned?

    I pray i am right and pray that our reps dont sell us down the river. I just hope the nra shield program can get some traction before another sandy hook.

    You can take that argument to any level. What if the bad guy is rocking full auto? Etc.

    im not saying id be content but if they ban semi's then i will buy other guns and practice and be just as deadly.

    if they ban guns alltogether then ill get the best knife i can afford and ill practice defending myself

    if all i have is my hands then ill buy a punching bag and take some kind of martial arts

    the point of the thread is that alot of people are acting like the semi auto/ak..ar/ black rifle/ is the be all end all of selfdefense...

    i bet if you take some of the mooks that have been buying AR's as of late and pitt them against one of these cowboy action shooters im betting the CAS would win a majority of the time with his old west tech.

    im not saying this about everyone,not even the majority ..but a guy that really trains can be just as effective in a gunfight with non semi as he can be with a Ak...
