Even VP Biden is relenting on some of his chest pounding after public reactions. In the end, I think we'll see the mags over 10 become unavailable, maybe a couple other small things. Mainly what you'll see is, a lot of people taking a huge bath on the retarded prices they paid for AR's in December and Jan.

I dont think legislation will be able to get through the house but we can expect our "President for Life" to issue an unconstitutional proclamation. Whether law enforcement or the military will obey the order to enforce it is the big question and he will order its implementation before the courts can act. If he does and if they do, you will be living in a Dictatorship instead of a Constitutional Republic. Welcome to the United Socialist States of America or will it be the Union of Socialist States of America. Either way it is the USSA. Our new flag will be a hammer and sickle on a yellow background.

If Obama issues illegal executive orders that is grounds for impeachment. FDR got away with issuing illegal executive orders because congress was on board with him. Our current congress would love to impeach Obama. Even some Democrats would be on board with impeaching Obama for killing the momentum the Democratic party has built up in the past few years. His current actions are ensuring a republican landslide in the next election. When it comes to the second amendment Americans will vote single issue. The Republican party would be dead by now if the Democrats would leave the second amendment alone.

will Grandfathering be affected?
example: can they do something to the rifles that were grandfathered before the ban?
overall can they affect grandfathering by taking away a rifle thats banned even though it was grandfathered?
can they do that or put such a law?

Technically no laws can be made retroactively but who knows at this point. If you pass a law that is fundamentally unconstitutional do you really care how many clauses it violates? Sorta defines this entire argument, if you are willing to kill someone do you really care if the gun used is a banned weapon?

You are just going to have to be patient. No one knows what will happen or when it will happen.

This is what my crystall ball says, but it told me that Florida would win their bowl game too........

I wouldn't worry about losing any gun already in your posession. It may, in the future, be very difficult and/or very expensive to purchase or transfer any high-capacity, semi-automatic, centerfire rifles. It may be very difficult, or illegal to purchase or transfer the hi-cap magazines. Personal transfers of guns at gun shows may require background checks, not currently mandatory.

My crystall ball also tells me that people like James Yeager could make things much worse for gun owners. (that sombitch is crazy) It also tells me that one more mass murder in the near future may change all of the rules.

+1 agree 100% on this.

I've heard that grandfathering will be allowed but you must pay a $200 tax to register your firearm and you cannot transfer it to anyone...upon your death the rifle must be destroyed..but who knows what will really happen

They pass retroactive bills all the time. Tax laws are the most commonly retroactive laws. Can they? In short, yes. Will the people accept this? Not likely. A court injunction would hold it up if they tried, and you can bet your *** the NRA would be on that like stink on ****. So, if you haven't already, join the NRA and help fight for the cause!

^^^^100%^^^^ this!

want to change the course of things? then join the NRA or any gun owners rights group. sheer numbers are what politicians look at. and strength in numbers and showing the opposition that we are united in our beliefs of our Constitutional rights and freedoms is what will turn the issues.

IMO, i believe we are moving forward rather than backward, even in light of some of the recent violent events that have happened. membership in the NRA is up, gun sales are crazy, more and more people are signing up for CC classes and permits.

i think the presidents statements after the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting about more gun control has had just the opposite effect that he wanted. less seem to want more gun control and bans, because i think they are finally realizing that it just doesn't work and it never has. i think they are realizing that gun contol laws and restriction only punish the LAC and not the criminals. people are getting fed up with being victims and are taking steps to ensure their safety.

these are strictly my opinions and observations based on what i am seeing and hearing on the news.

Get ready to bash me. I am a lifelong democrat. Of sorts. I would be known as a Reagan democrat.

I can tell you one thing for sure. Never again will I ever vote democrat. Period.

Neither party represents my views, that said, they all keep picking clowns to run.

Never again. Done. They have shifted so far left I am through.

Bash time I'm sure.

Nothing you said is bash-worthy, actually we are very tolerant around here of opposing opinions, besides I think most around here would agree with your sentiments.

Agreed, the two party system is a circus of either for or against, either gay marriage or abortion.
If i thought my nether regions were the most important things guiding the country, I would have a dog in this fight.
Debt, wars, spending, drug laws, etc (and with Romney, the second amendment) seem to have the same results no matter if the D or R is running the show. So not to derail the thread charlesmar, just wanted to say I agree with you.

i agree with JPyle. nothing you said warrants anyone beating up your position. i think we agree on the issue that our gun rights are under attack and that's why many of us are here on the forum in the first place.

big thumbs up for joining the NRA to you and your wife!

Sometimes I get so depressed with the direction our country is heading, I want to emigrate to some desert island and bury my head in the sand. Yet I know that wouldn't help. It would only help all of the ( insert favorite derogatory adjective here ) to destroy what I believe in. So I keep plugging away, doing what I can.
