Dear Magpul please make lots more mags.
This is a discussion on Good news on gun control from an un-named Democrat within the The Second Amendment & Gun Legislation Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Originally Posted by dben002 This has and will be debated here for a long time....All I am relaying to you is that it was stated ...
For those who don't understand, it is real important to know that there isn't the votes for the most important part of their agenda, a ban. As for the other parts, when the time comes, we need to shift fire and defeat that too.
Again, thanks for sharing and sorry about the friendly fire.

The McClure-Volkmer Act is also known as the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 (FOPA).
It prevents the government from creating a list of gun owners from dealer records.
This president has no regard for the Constitution or what it stands for. So today (just as he did yesterday) he will swear an oath he has no intention of keeping. That being said, we need to keep pressure on our elected officials and support those groups that defend the second amendment...we also MUST speak to friends and family about this issue. It is going to take a grass-roots effort to stop Feinstein, Reed, King Cuomo, and Obama. If we don't stand up for our rights we will lose them. However, if we do keep the pressure up Obama will not get away with using an executive order.
As others have said, do not get complacent and think this is a short-term battle. The anti-gun fanatics are in it for the long haul. I've used the anti-smoking campaign as an example. They started with small steps, chipping away at smoker's rights: no smoking in elevators, then lobbies, then office buildings, then 100 feet from the door of a building, then entire school properties...now in some places a smoker can't exercise his/her right in their own home. As they passed laws they also began brainwashing young people. This has resulted in demonizing smokers almost to the point of making them evil. Now I am not a smoker...nor do I condone smoking, but my point is that this is what the anti-gun lobby will do, and have been doing. Take small steps until they have taken all guns and demonized those of us who are gun enthusiasts. We must stand together and fight, or we will see the loss of our second amendment rights...and that will be quickly followed by the loss of other Constitutional rights.
Come on, Mike.
Why are you shooting a messenger because you are passionate? I am equally passionate about this. Unnamed source? Look Reid said if he doesn't have the votes, he isn't even bringing it up for a vote. Better it dies in Committee than make the floor. Additionally, we can shift some of of fires to attack the registration scheme and tell them it is unacceptable. Jumping up and down on your fellow members is wrong, especially since we are all in this for the long haul. I doubt anyone in this conversation has been in the fight longer than I have, having been a NRA life member for over 40 years and been active in legislative battles. It is always good to look at the talisman bones as things progress to see if your "cards and letters" are having any affect. I appears that we are having an affect, all the more reason to ramp it up and continue. But to try to slap down someone because we can see light instead of all doom and gloom....give me a break.

I dont believe reports on unnamed politicians. And yeah, registration is worse than a magazine ban my opinion.
[I bet you also believe in Santa Claus, Obama won't raise taxes, and Obama is not a divider! They are quiet because they need to get re-elected next year! Why do you think Al Frankin is not backing Gun Control, because he believes in the 2nd amendment!
If everyone keeps drinking the Kool-Aid we'll live happy every after just like OZ![/QUOTE]
I think the Dems will try and drag this legislation out until next year. After they are re-elected they will start going after gun control. JMO.
