    Dick's Sporting Goods stops selling guns, TV shows being cancelled, Feinstein's bill coming up etc.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    If the NEt is shut down I think we have more important problems than two ridiculus shows being cancelled
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    Oh, ok. I never go in there, I thought it was more extensive than just AR15's.

    For real? If I was for real I'd get a burner phone and get about 20 or 30 phone numbers from people I thought might know something. I'd get SIXTO's number and probably Mulle46. They're both police and would have some sort of information. Hotguns too now that I think of it. The best way would be twitter or FB, but if everything shut down then you would just have to take it on faith that "it" is on. You'd better have your big boy pants on for that day.

    EDIT: Notice the irony....at one time indians could not purchase guns

    I think you will be digging around the house for an........ AM radio.

    I think the time is now to become a HAM operator. and take out stock in tin foil. DR

    A multi band scanner would be a good idea. If you are serious.

    Also while things are still working it would be a good idea to send a few PMs around to get contact info.....that is IF you are serious and not just kidding around with this thread.

    I would suggest that you get a HAM radio license if you truly have these concerns. The technician license is fairly easy to get but to maximize your ability to talk over distances, you'll want a general license.

    Just to head off any objection to getting the license, I'll say this; sure, you can use a HAM radio without a license and in the scenario you are talking about, getting busted by the FCC would be the least of your problems. So I'll just concede that right off the bat. However... What getting a license will do for you is allow you the ability to learn and use your radio now, and speak with other HAMs now. If your scenario were to come to pass, that wouldn't be when you'd want to be trying to work through the HAM learning curve. You could do that part now, legally, and then you'd maintain the ability to communicate, with some people at least, if something like your scenario were to happen.
