    It looks like Washington, in an effort to spike the economy, and pacify the masses who in general are sick of them, has agreed to a tax rebate in the neighborhood of $600.00 per person, approx. $1,200.00 per married couple. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone getting one to exercise their Second Amendment rights and buy a gun with it. Think of the irony. The Democrats agreed to it, and would love yet another Assault Weapons Ban. What better way to rub it in their face than buy that AR-15 you've been wanting, and let the Dems. help you pay for it. I just bought another AR-15 the other day, but I can use a nice AK-47, and a bunch of Hi-Caps for my AR's. Let's work to try and get this going. What could be better? Invest in America's future, buy a gun! Bill T.

    ...and how much of it is taken back in redundant taxation.

    Eh, who care if you get $1200 and have to pay taxes, it is still money I overpaid to the government, and not to sound cliche' it is better than nothing. I am probably going to use this to buy the XD I've been drooling over. Heck, I might even spend the extra $40 or $50 and go for a bi-tone. It isn't free money but it is MY money. :)

    It's more redistribution of wealth. Marx would be proud.

    That's the first thing I though of when I first heard about the tax (theft) rebate.

    I'd like to buy another gun, but if I do, it better be a really small one because the safe is pretty full now. Maybe I should spend the money on getting another safe :D

    Certainly it is! Who controls the wealth in this country? Not you or me.

    More guns is good!

    I think I'll second the safe idea though.... Anyone have a Dakota?

    its ironic that i came across this thread, i'll turn 21 shortly before we are supposed to get that rebate, and i was telling my dad last night that i plan on getting a ccw with the money.

    I'm thinking of buying more ammo rather than a new firearm......

    I just picked up my AR15 a few weeks ago - That extra rebate will help pay it off. :)

    Congrats on the new acquisition. New York and New Jersey have some pretty strict limits on AR features. How is Pennsylvania? For example, we can only have the pistol grip and removable mag. No bayonet lug, collapsible stock, grenade launcher, removable muzzle break or flash hider. Does PA have any such pointless limitations?

    bkt - Nothing that I'm aware of! NY has crazy gun laws and I'm very glad I don't live there. :)
