The talk of banning weapons is always a distractor for the real issues we face. Sure blame a gun when the inner city is a blaze with violence, blame a gun when someone loses their mind and goes on a killing spree, blame a gun when a child doesn't get the proper education from the government and/or care from their parents.

Those who want to use guns as a scapegoat are covering up governments failure at being your mommy and daddy. Why the government is your provider, how can they be responsible for any of the ills we face, it has to be those damn guns hopping around waiting for innocent prey.

It makes for a nice distraction but does not address the problems humans face and government just can't admit they may just be part of the problem. Easier to blame a piece of metal.

Some people claim the USA as we know it is over. We shall see in a few months if that's correct. If they start registering and/or banning guns, these people are correct.

There is a reason why I sold a bunch of stuff. I'm afraid that the new AWB will ban the easy sale and transfer of these weapons and frankly I didn't need that many guns.
That's good that you sold your stuff. That may keep them from being turned in later.....you're a good subject, your Dear Leader will be proud.

^ Yep.

Do the gungrabber/pukes think that everyone buying now at STUPID prices are going to turn them in later like a bunch of SLAVES?

And if they think they can just sit as a conscientious observers and escape the negatives of the pending war if the .gov wants to play it that way... they've thought WRONG.

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 military characteristic
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
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

The House better not let this crap pass. I will only listen to any type of restrictions after they address the moral decay of our nation and kick the ACLU square in the nuts. Until then, NOT NO but HELL NO.

When I lived in California, I contacted her office about an issue. It took almost two years for her office to even acknowledge my request, and she never followed up on it. She is as useless as the day is long. I have increasingly felt that Dan White shot the wrong people that day...and created a monster who has spent her whole life building her power base on his mentally unbalanced act of shooting the Mayor and Harvey Milk.

People, people, people. Guns don't kill people. People kill people. And, they use bullets. Bullets do the actual damage, not guns.

Not to mention that he would have had to carry 16 magazines, plus the one in the rifle, to fire that many rounds. A rifle, two fully loaded handguns, and sixteen additional magazines? Seems like an excessive load-out for one person to carry.

Sorry I seem ignorant on this, but should I be looking for an upper as well due to Ms. Idiots. . . I mean Fiensteins legislation?

To be open, I love rifles, especially older ones where you can see the craftsmanship. For this, I wanted to start a collection with a bunch of rifles, including an AR. As far as shooting, I have a couple handguns but mostly enjoy plinking bottles with a .22 . Due to this upcoming ban, I've picked up a lower, a collapsing stock, and a bunch of 30rd mags and figured I'd build the rest later. I understand she wants to push people to register their firearms, but is she trying to ban another part of the rifle? Thanks!
