I think the problem is, whether dem or rep, most of them are only there for their own personal agenda. I think we need to get rid of the career politician and get statesmen back in those seats that actually care about the people.

As for the new law....who knows. There's a lot of rumors and speculation out there and it's scaring the crap out of people. I'm hoping it won't be as bad as we're expecting. But I'm a half full glass kind of guy!

The antis will do anything to gut the 2nd amendment, legal or illegal. We have to fight them tooth and nail on any proposals that they make!

Thats why we have the NRA. I have 100 percent confidence that they'll fight to the bitter end on this. Its what they're best at and no other lobby in the US has support of private membership and industry the way they do. Its why they have all da monies. Spread the word and keep the faith.

It's excerpted from Feinstein's proposed AWB legislation.

http://www.rightsidenews.com/2013010631704/us/politics/feinstein-comprehensive-gun-ban-bill-coming-january-22.html
Quote:
Requires owners of existing "assault weapons" to register them with the federal government under the National Firearms Act (NFA).

The NFA imposes a $200 transfer tax per firearm, and requires an owner to submit photographs and fingerprints to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), to inform the BATFE of the address where the firearm will be kept, and to obtain the BATFE's permission to transport the firearm across state
lines.

Prohibits the transfer of "assault weapons.

"Owners of other firearms, including those covered by the NFA, are permitted to sell them or pass them to heirs. However, under Feinstein's new bill, "assault weapons" would remain with their current owners until their deaths, at which point they would be forfeited to the
government.

Bottom line is that there are no new gun laws in front of the full House or Senate. Executive Orders are limited to enforcing existing laws. So if you see one it will likely relate to background checks.

I can't remember if I saw it on this group, or another, but someone made the comment that the different 3 letter agencies might change regulations. Like one enviornmental group might say something to the affect that you can't use lead bullets and another group might say you can ONLY use lead bullets.

Who knows what backdoors they might try to accomplish what they want.
