Saw today, BHO re-stating his position and stating it is a priority and he wants it done in 2013.
In the last few years the Cult of Personality has grown even stronger around the President and he is a man of very strong persuasive skills.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

I think we'll know much about which direction things are heading in mere weeks, not months.

Well, scares of an AWB result in high sales of firearms, ammunition and accessories. The rapid increase of sales bodes well for the manufacturers and distributors of such products. A lot of these companies are American based. And since we've been in tough economic times i find it hard to believe the politicians can turn their back to this industry completely. But trusting a politician is equally as hard to believe. My gut feeling is this will blow over. But i believe if it doesnt there will be an AWB. Which i think would result in a big black market for firearms. Which would put a premium on banned firearms, and organized crime such as gangs and cartels are the only people that benefit from a premium being placed on such weapons. Plus i can guarantee the amount of full-auto firearms used in shootings would increase with an AWB. If a deadly weapon is as hard to get as a really deadly weapon what is stopping a wacko to get a really deadly weapon?

I think this one will last until November 2016 or another four years or more depending on what happens. Prepare for intense sellers market.
