What will an AWB mean to us, the public?

Just wondering, If I build a new AR style rifle, just what would an impending assault weapon ban mean to me? Will they be knocking on my door wanting it? Will I be ok if I do not walk around the mall with it? What????

Just wondering.

As yet nothing has been submitted.

Generally, what few proposals exist do not include confiscation, just prohibition of new ones. I would suppose something not unlike the last one- magazine limits and prohibitions of certain features.

Write your legislators, make your feelings known, take part in the debate and donate to those groups lobbying for us and the whole thing will just be academic.

At this point, we don't know.

So, continuing this discussion is nothing more than speculation, so I'm going to close it for now.

Over the coming weeks, though, we'll all have a lot better idea as to how we're going to be affected by this.
