Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Prices over time always go up. IF they can't pass a ban, they'll add a tax stamp of some sore. $200 bucks here, $200 bucks there. I'm sure my $1000 AK will be worth more in 5 years or 10 years. It's every...what 10-12 years and there's a stock market crash. Maybe my $1000 over-priced AK will still be worth $1000.
