No. You'd hear more than just a couple guys at work talking about that.

Will never happen!

Considering we have a republican house and a majority pro-gun senate along with the recent SC rulings and I think the odds a weapons ban getting traction is slim. I also think any attempt at another weapons ban will include grandfathering existing firearms that are already owned.

Quote from a "friend"
 Quote:

Any future AWB that doesn't have a grandfather clause would be extraordinarily costly to enforce and results would be, at best, inconclusive and unverifiable.

If results aren't quantifiable and the government spends billions trying to seize every "assault weapon" in circulation, justifying an AWB to the population at large, considering the current fiscal issues, is political suicide for his party. Before committing to an AWB, Obama has to ask himself questions like "what happens if we do this very expensive thing and gun crime doesn't decrease? How do we explain that? How do we justify spending that money?".

Even the DoJ's very own report on the last AWB stated that the effect was so small it was probably immeasureable in large part because AW's are rarely used in crimes.

A total AWB would be akin to trying to put all the water back in the Hoover dam after it broke; there's simply too much, you'll never get all of it, you'll never know how much you've missed, it's going to take a long time, and it'll be expensive as hell.


I think it's just the rumor mil trying to scare everyone. Kinda like the end of the world is in two weeks...

The Sky is falling!!!
If 1/100th of the crap you heard and read on the internet was true. Anyone have ANY actual evidence that anyone is trying to ban semi-auto guns? That's just ridiculous. the president is a [censored] but most of the what you hear is just propaganda that people make themselves believe because they're paranoid.

This has nothing to do with "serious deer hunting" and should be moved to the political forum.

Full autos have been banned from civilian ownership for a while in one way or another under the Nat'l Fireams Act of 1934, Gun Control Act of 1968 and the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986.

To own a full-auto or component parts, you have to have them registered with the feds and they must have been manufactured prior to May 19 1986. This in addition to the application, background check, and tax you pay to the govt.

A full auto ban isn't news. A ban on semis would be a different story.

Yes, and you just told the entire world about it. I'm just glad I got rid of all my guns.
