Just got word that the AWB has been dropped by the Democrats.
Got word from AP. Can anyone else verify this?

Dropped by them until the next time you mean, don't you? You realize they will never give up until American civilians have basically been disarmed, right, however long that takes!?

This was NEVER about federal regulation or bans it was all a signal for the states to do what Congress cannot. Feinstein's bill was DOA from day one but every swinging d$&k liberal in every state house is rushing to pass anti gun laws in an attempt to overwhelm the opposition. Once Congress passes a law it goes straight to SCOTUS, no lower courts required...state laws must go through the state and circuit courts first, a long and expensive process.

Yep, not much of a victory as victories go but I won't look a gift horse in the mouth. Any day the anti-2A crowd gets a reversal I chalk up in the win column.

Ms Feinstein is disappointed. She will go back and tell her people that she tried to get it through. They will tell her that they are "sorry to hear that, but we'll keep you in office next time so you can try again".

Cruz will say "I prevailed!", his people will say "Good, We'll keep you in office."

Meanwhile that debt continues to rise, foreign relations continue to suck, unemployment is still high, taxes are going up.

This is one of those things they will bring up at midnite on a friday and run it through both houses for obama. Kinda how obamacare got done

Make no mistake speaker boner is not pro 2a in the slightest. There are enough romney/bush/reagan/mccaine types in the house to get it done on a midnite session.

It's a small victory in a big war. At least it's one less thing to worry about.

It will be back. A war will come but this is a good sign that we are winning. It shows that we no longer will take their sheise. They can have the "Assault weapons", when they take the lead first.

God Bless Senator Grassley for fighting the good fight. He is one of the FEW senators that refuse to back any of the knee jerk legislation that seems to be running rampant these days. I have met with him on a few occasions ( he has town hall meetings in EACH of the 99 counties in Iowa at least once a year) and is pro 2A. Check out his questioning on Fast and Furious.

The battle is not over!

Even if at the fed level it is "over", we still have the states to contend with.

Ammo (and other supplies) are coming back.
But don't expect the price of ammo to drop much.
