Now that we have a new president ...

and a veto proof congress to back him; what new firearms regulations do you envision coming out of this Triad?

The new president has a record of supporting firearms regulations, stated that the DC law was constitutional, and supports the banning of handguns -- likely an impossibility under the tenets of Heller unless the court is loaded with anti-firearms jurists and the law revisited.

Your thoughts on proposals and what they would mean to the American sport shooting and hunting enthusiast.

Your thoughts on the constitutionality and enforcement of such laws.

My personal belief is they will start where they always start, "assault weapons" and work their way down from there. The same ol' same ol' wording, and the same ol' same ol' fearmongering, about how flash hiders, grenade launchers, and bayonets are somehow important features which need to be banned.

The handgun legislation will likely, once again, limit magazine size and may try to outlaw everything but wheelguns; but that lies in the future. Nibble, nibble.

National reciprocity is now dead. Period.

I'll leave ammunition regulations to the rest of you.
Gun Control: The premise that a woman found in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is morally superior to allowing that same woman to defend her life with a firearm.
