As much as I'd like to think any new AWB that's being discussed won't have an effect on them, I seriously believe even classic western style firearms like revolvers and lever guns will eventually be on the chopping block if it passes. As soon as gun control groups get a ban on hi-cap rifles and pistols, the next step will be a ban on pumps, levers and revolvers since we all know a good shot - like Jerry Miculek or Lucas McCain from The Rifleman
- can accurately shoot a pump or revolver as quickly (or quicker) than 99% of us shoot a semi-auto rifle or pistol.
The ultimate goal of hardcore gun control advocates is to turn the U.S. into another Australia and Great Britain. Essentially, only single shot or double barreled shotguns and possibly bolt action rifles will be allowed for the common citizen. Sadly, in the example of GB it won't stop with firearms. While it's a tired old saying, the sad truth is when we outlaw guns, only the outlaws will have the guns!
