At some point in ones life one must draw a line and chose sides I think it's time for anyone who cares to own a gun step up to the plate and do everything in their power to preserve this right.

I think the prices will drop in six months. I also think people shouldn't have all this Hate for people making money on the high prices. The inventory is nothing right now and if you don't like the prices then don't buy. You don't need an AR or even a PMag to live. Buds Gunshop had pmags at $30 Each limit 4 last week and then while people were in line went to $40 Each with people still getting 4 as fast as they would ring them up.

I was against putting a Socialist Man back in the White House so I am not going to get upset that Supply and Demand is in full swing. What are shops suppose to do? Give a mag to each person for free so that everyone has one? Sounds like another gov't program.

Posts: 161 LGS told a story of a guy that bought 2 M1A SOCOMS in order to "make a profit". He sold them back at a loss when he found no buyers when his credit card bill came in. I'm just going to hang onto what I have...

As low, sell high.

Here is Diane Feinsteins current proposal for Legislation. This will go to the Biden Committee. One piece of legislation specified that heirs could not receive said items from a deceased estate. They had to be relinquished.

Summary of 2013 legislation
Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation:

Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
120 specifically-named firearms;
Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one or more military characteristics; and
Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.
Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test;
Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test; and
Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans.
Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment;
Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes; and
Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons.
Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
Background check of owner and any transferee;
Type and serial number of the firearm;
Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration.
After a bad opening, there is hope for the middle game.
After a bad middle game there is hope for the end game.
But once you are in the endgame, the moment of truth has arrived -

And after this, we'll be limited to break-open, single shot .22 LR's...

I don't believe much will happen in the end, as public opinion, outside the far left that's always been "that way", hasn't changed much- even in recent polling. The fact that the AWB has already been there, and done that, doesn't lend a lot of credence to their war cry.

HOWEVER, take nothing for granted. The Senate...maybe...The way...PROVIDED we speak as loudly as those who oppose us.

Wondering if the feds pass any anti-gun laws such as mags etc and pro-gun states so no who will trump? Fed law does not always trump state law and some conflict. Fed law does not always have absolute power over states. I know they have absolute power of certain matters like drugs etc. Look at CA medical marjuana is legal and the feds said no but they still do it. I think the feds have to come in and enforce that law while the state and local police do not?
I'm hairbag and I approve this message.
