    If they announce no ban then I will buy an AR15 when the prices return to normal. I don't really care about 30 round magazines. If I can't hit it in 10 rounds, then I don't have much chance.

    Sure did get the firearms economy going. Retailers sold 5 years worth of ammo and mags in 30 days. Boy there are going to be some pissed off folks when they see these mags and ARs they bought for 500% markup settle back down. Can't wait to see my local gun trader website flush with for sale ads stating "but I paid $2000 for it and I'd like to get at least $1950".

    The weeping will commence Monday and will be in full effect Tuesday.

    The pawn shops will be full of ARs and AKs very soon.

    Should this be true, when people want to return their premium priced purchases to the retailers, things could get interesting.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    I do hope to see it, and soon.

    Why don't you do some research and get back on that one?

    IF this is true, IMO, I think there will be such a flood of AR-15's and AK's, the price might actually go down from where it was before this whole fiasco. But that's just me...

    If the administration can put that over (for now) in the midst of all this anti-gun hysteria I'll be amazed.

    Maybe I should sit in the parking lot of the LGS and offer customers ten cents on the dollar for any returns. Since the LGS won't do a return I will be there to help them out. Do you have any idea just how many newbie gun owners got into the market in the last 30 days and likely have no clue that they don't have a 90 days return policy?

    Why don't you stop posting idiotic comments. Nobody takes returns on guns or ammo because you paid too much for it.

    Pawn shops for fractions of pennies on the dollar, IF they're lucky. :rofl:

    There is a warranty for defects and repair, but I believe that most gun retailers have a no return policy. You buy a new gun, it becomes used when you take it out the store. So you can only trade it in or put it up for consignment sale.

    Compromise on any gun control measure is like compromising with cancer cells.

    We know where this leads.

    They attack on a broad front, find something we are willing to compromise on, take it, wait and do it again and again, for decades if necessary until they get everything they want, which is of course the total disarmament of the people.

    We will end up like the British, crime ridden, helpless and told constantly to fear everything but that our hard working government protectors are doing everything possible to protect us, they just need us to give up a few more liberties and it will all be better.

    Agree! Compromise on NOTHING "compromising" = giving in to "incrementally" giving away tour rights a little bit at a time.

    I was on a conference call with Bruce Reed from Biden's staff, with 500 other people who have signed gun-related petitions on We the People, on Friday: he seemed pretty intent on the AWB and magazine capacity limits, to the point that when nearly every commenter was against them he said the president was calling him and ended the call after about 25 minutes. I'm skeptical that they have seen the light.

    Can anyone from Illinois confirm the 5 cent/cartridge ammo tax?
    Did it pass?
