    Guns and the Presidential Election: MERGED

    Romney seems to be pulling ahead in the Florida polls. If he wins there we will be on the path to a presidential election in which the candidates of both parties support an "assault weapons" ban, among other things like national handgun waiting periods. I'll at least stock up on hi capacity magazines, but I am still thinking about the rifles I might want to acquire before a ban.

    How about you?

    Yep, at least enough to turn in a few of them and still have plenty left.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I always get nervous around Presidential elections. I'm also a little queasy about the SCOTUS (Heller) decision as well.

    All we can do is hope the pro-gunners in Congress can keep bills like that from reaching the President (remember, Bush43 said he would sign the AWB if it reached his desk!).

    I made a killing during the last AWB... I dont think I want to do it again. I didnt intend on doing that, it just worked out that way.
    I think if they are going to do it this time around, they are going to do it a little smarter because they learned from their mistakes. This one is going to be worse, and I think you wont be able to go shoot your AR/AK without fear.
    I'm more afraid of ammo supply than hardware.

    Being able to feed and maintain what you have should be the first priority. After that... have fun!

    If Hitler or Osama become president, I'll bet a years pay that it will happen. If one of the demoncrap's calling themselves conservative gets in, I'll bet half a years pay that it will happen.
    Congress plays a bigger role anyway.

    Yep, I have 2 AR lowers put away, and am stocking up on hi-cap mags.
    My concern is regarding class III firearms, as I am working to aquire a M14 as we speak. With the scrutny we go through for them I think they are fairly safe ....but
    "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier
    and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
    service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
    love and thanks of man and woman."

    I doubt that the socialists in Congress will mess with Class 3 weapons, as they are highly regulated and generate lots of cash.

    As for Congress being more important that is true, but it does worry me. Most of them are too stupid to consider the facts and instead would run off of a cliff if their party leader told them to do so. For that reason I have no faith in their ability to make a decent decision as most of them have never held a real job of any substance and many of them seem to be prone to excessive drinking,parting,pandering and doing just about anything other than doing what is best for this country.

    Clinton got elected twice, and look at the crap that passed when he/she was in there. If Clinton gets in there again, look for much worse to happen as she is openly hostile to the ideals of this nation.Then we have a guy that thinks its OK to marry several woman, thinks Jesus and the Devil are brothers, another that converted from being a Muslim to a "Christian" because he was told that a Muslim wouldn't be elected as a president of the U.S., a couple more that would put the interests of the United Nations over that of the U.S. and do their best to blend us all into one happy global economy.

    Yeah, we've got a lot to look forward to alright...

    I doubt that any of it is good.

    We're drifting into the prohibited political discussion area.

    Don't go there...


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I plan on taking my $1200 of the Income Re-Distribution Plan to buy hi-cap mags and maybe another pistol.

    Ok..back to the topic.

    I dont plan on stockpiling because I am already "stockpiled".
    I dont trust any of them.
