I just wrote Mr. Obama and congratulated him on his election and wished him well. I also told him to stay away from ANY new gun laws as it will hurt the other things he is fighting for. I told him that MANY law abiding citizens including myself are passionate about this issue and banning Assault riflles and certain types of ammunition is just devisive and ridiculous policy.
You all should barrage him as well as your representatives an senators with letters...be nice! Don't call anyone a commie or socialist, just be passionate about your opinions and express how important hunting and shooting is to you as well having to option to protecting yourself and your family.

When that day comes, I'll be too wasted on Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters to notice

Chad, legislation if passed as an emergency, could take effect as soon as it was signed. Some legislation includes a start time. The short answer is that it depends upon how any particular bill is written.

lon371, I'm not aware of any pending legislation that calls for a ban. Care to enlighten the rest of us?
No problem;

HR 45
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill...45&tab=summary

I did not bother to read all the post so if someone already brought this up I apologize.

I am not one to get to excited over what Gov tries to do. But this one does have me nervous. Especially since Dems hold all the power for now.

Here is a little better discription.

H.R. 45 (Rush): This bill would require a license for handguns and semiautomatics, including those currently possessed. The applicant must be thumbprinted and sign a certification that, effectively, the firearm will not be kept in a place where it would be available for the defense of the gun owner’s family. The applicant must also make available ALL of his psychiatric records, pass an exam, and pay a fee of up to $25. The license may be renewed after five years and may be revoked. Private sales would be outlawed, and reports to the attorney general of all transactions would be required, even when, as the bill allows, the AG determines that a state licensing system is sufficiently draconian to substitute for the federal license. With virtually no exceptions, ALL firearms transactions (involving semiautos, handguns, long guns, etc.) would be subject to a Brady check. In addition, the bill would make it unlawful in nearly all cases to keep any loaded firearm for self-defense. A variety of “crimes by omission” (such as failure to report certain things) would be created. Criminal penalties of up to ten years and almost unlimited regulatory and inspection authority would be established

Let's not get our knickers in a twist. HR 45 is not a ban. It is also legislation that has garnered no support in the 2 months it has been in committee (no sponsors).

HR 45, since it is not a ban, is off topic for this thread.
