Everyone please don't go crazy and buy everything in sight its just going to jack prices up,remember 2008 when Obama was voted in everyone bought everything up
our entire military only has about a million firearms. there are currently nearly 300million in the hands of private citizens. we got em outnumbered. they can try confiscating but i dont think its going to workYup. People are stocking up on future confiscation items.
I'd like to think you're right Rhino, but 1) When has the Constitution made a difference to the current crowd in D.C. And, 2) It was former Obama adviser and current Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel who said "You don't ever want a crisis to go to waste. It's an opportunity to do important things you'd otherwise avoid." Mr. Obama and his like-minded comrades will act ASAP to take advantage of this tragedy to advance their agenda.IMO, all you're going to see is a refined NICS check network, and possibly some magazine size restrictions for rifles. There simply isn't enough political clout in place to outright ban anything, and any executive orders will be knocked on their asses as unconstitutional.
Unless he wants his nominations blocked, his tax increase shoved up his....(you get the picture) etc,etc, he would be well advised to not try to make an end run around the congress.I have one question for you.
Does Obama need any kind of approval to re-classify firearms?
