    Colorado has legalized pot and the Feds have admittedly had to ignore / overlook it. Our state lawmakers / governors may indeed be a viable last line of defense on more than just the gun issue. I can see some states telling Washington to pizz off. Make sure you live in one if that time comes.

    Rifles & shotguns will never be illegal in the USA.

    Handguns will never be illegal in the USA.

    But, a day may come when a permit is required to possess a handgun in all 50 states.

    And we may someday have a new Assault-Weapons ban.

    But no, there will NEVER be a day when all guns are banned.

    To avoid being crucified by their vociferous constituents, "they" are sure going to try: Feinstein to introduce gun-grabbing bill in senate.

    would a new AWB pass the Senate?

    maybe.

    would it pass the House? no way, no how, not worth trying.

    Gun Control is a multi-faceted thing happening on various assorted fronts. Beginning during the very early school years right up into college. Then also the mainstream media has their grubby incessant little fingers into it.
    Then there is the complete wimpifacation of childrens books etc. & the editing and selective teaching of our historical past & the complete neglect of the Constitution.
    It's a long list.
    The planting of the seed that firearms are inherently evil and that it is far more dangerous to have one than to not have one alsp plays a part.

    Eventually unless we all take new, young, fresh people shooting...firearms will eventually just be Grandfathered out due to apathy and constant demon-ization.

    If the demagogues don't at least try something along the lines of vilification of the demon, they'll be politically dead. Sadly, it's not possible to avoid trying, if any of them want any public future.

    Look again at where it happened, it happened August 22, 1999, to Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk , England. I'm not saying it won't happen here.....but I highly doubt it

    If you think they did not keep records of every gun sold and to who there is no hope for you.
    from LEO on this latest shooting " we will know the entire history of these weapons every detail of them"
    Connecticut has gun registration - so they probably will know the entire history of the weapons. If you are implying that the BATFE keeps "secret" records - or states, or FFLs, or whoever else - of gun transactions, I would say, "who cares". There are plenty of private sales that take place in our country. Just because a gun was purchased in 1975 doesn't mean the original purchaser still has it. Lots of things can happen to guns - sold, broken, traded, bartered, fell into the ocean, fell into a lake, fell into a river, rusted/rotted away to nothing due to improper storage/cleaning....

    Watching the Bloomberg re-run on MTP. Too bad there wasn't different view on the subject. Pro gun republicans were apparently invited but declined. The polls probably indicated telling the truth, this soon after a tragedy, wouldn't be prudent. Assclowns all of them.


    Uh oh. Feinstein wants to make illegal all assault weapons.

    They will never confiscate all guns. They will make it more expensive and difficult for us target shooters.

    Homeland Security is a HUGE agency. Lots of gun toters in those agencies, and buying ammo in bulk saves money (like anyone in the government really cares about saving our tax dollars huh? ) I no longer have the exact numbers, but the agency within DHS that I retired from had in the neighborhood of 4500 Special Agents, and close to that many Deportation Officers. They all carry sidearms, they all must qualify with that sidearm quarterly, usually 200 rounds or so used by each officer at each qual. Adds up pretty quick.

    I'd also opine that unless DHS has secretly hired an entire new army of robots, the people I worked with wouldn't be taking anyones guns away. Just my .02.

    "The blast knocks both thugs to the floor. One writhes and screams while the second man crawls to the front door and lurches outside. As you pick up the telephone to call police, you know you're in trouble." PirateSailor

    In a post gun grab world, the story would read more like this: "The blast knocks both thugs to the floor. One writhes and screams while the second man crawls to the front door and lurches outside and dies. Ghost of Charlton Heston or Chuck for short, puts on his pants and boots and straps on his pistol, before getting the tractor out of the barn to dig yet another hole. Chuck chuckles to him self as he finishes his chore, and heads back to bed, "when will they ever learn".

    There are a whole lot of us, still or formerly in uniform, who remember our oath to uphold the Constitution. That oath does not end when we take the uniform off, either.

    "What if they passed a law to confiscate guns, but no-one showed up to enforce it?"

    Want to take the guns away? Amend the Constitution first. Ain't gonna happen.

    What may happen is an attempt at limiting magazine capacity. The Supreme Court has left the door open for some gun laws, but has not been very clear about what restrictions would pass or fail Constitutional muster. As always, defending freedom will be a constant struggle. Educating your neighbors is a start. Take them to the range.

    I hope that there is some discussion about mental health issues. And I really hope we get armed and trained staff/faculty in schools. Gun-free zones are a demonstrable failure. Write your Congress-critters TODAY in support of such.

    And, for the love of all that is holy - if you read this forum and are not yet a member of the NRA...JOIN. I don't care if you don't agree with them on everything. They are the most potent force for defending the 2A that there is. It's sickening how few gun owners are NRA members.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.
