    I personally don't think any significant new gun control legislation will pass at the federal level, but judging by the panic buying I'm in a minority.

    I curious whether anyone has considered a legislative "Plan B" in case something like a federal AW/hi-cap ban appears likely to pass? Like all legislation it's not uncommon for opponents (which in this case would be pro-RKBA legislators) to tack on amendments that soften the blow or "give something in return" to the constituency being adversely targeted by the main law.

    So if you were a pro-RKBA legislator, and you saw that it was likely a new AW or hi-cap ban was going to be passed into law, what would you try to tack onto the bill (considering the current national politics)?

    Some of my ideas:

    1. Remove suppressors and/or SBRs for Title II
    2. National RTC reciprocity
    3. National pre-emption of stricter state/local controls

    4. Violations of the constitution will hereby be dealt with as treasonous to the intent of the founding fathers and the intent of our nation. Treason is a crime punishable by hanging.

    So your idea is to threaten to hang any legislator or president who passes any law that violates that 2nd amendment? Did you try that in 1986 or 1994? If so how did that work out?

    I don't think he was born yet...

    Although I am not apposed to the idea, when did tarring and feathering go out of style?

    Obama can do what he wants to do by Executive Order, no need to pass anything. He's a Socialist Dictator plain and simple. As far as he's concerned the Constitution and Bill of Rights no longer apply. Sad fact is that WE THE PEOPLE have allowed this to happen by not learning from History(do they even teach History in school anymore) and by voting the jerk back into office. What we need is a good, ol' fashion Revolution to get our government back on track.

    Always detested that term- you cannot "Buy back" what you never owned.

    It is estimated the civilian population of the US owns ABOUT 270 million firearms (that was before a week ago- numbers have gone up!)

    So a buyback that offered a rock bottom $250 per gun would cost- if I am counting zeroes correctly- $67.5 BILLION dollars. A more realistic amount ($500 per gun) would bounce that to $135 BILLION dollars.

    Crap like this is dreamt up by idiots that have no concept just how widespread gun ownership is in the US.

    This has about as much chance as running thru a forest fire wearing gasoline underwear.

    I think the suppressor is a good thing. I mean it will be safer for us to shoot and not have a big chance of damaging our hearing. It's a health thing!

    That's exactly why they want to take all your guns away, so there is no revolution.

    We are doing exactly what the gun snatchers want us to do. We are driving up demand. The way that things are going we are going to price ourselves out of the gun business.

    ^ Yes but the fact that there's still a demand for guns is actually a good sign.

    That's what I keep thinking about. How much a buy back is going to cost us. Also I believe a combination of things are going to follow:

    Most of us are not going to turn our guns in. Even if they were offering fair market value.

    The government will come up with the bright idea of selling the guns to other countries to relieve cost to the country. Meaning they will make money on the deal and they will end up in the hands of our nations criminals somehow eventually.

    When they start coming to take our guns by force, they are going to have bigger problems then a kid on a spree.

    Or after initial passing of the order it is retracted due to mass riots.

    There is no way at this time in America will a retroactive ban work or be a good choice financially or in any other aspect.

    The usual buy back is $50.
