I have a feeling that what's going to happen here is that she's going to go 'all in' with everything, and then try and get a bunch of amendments...like removing the registration and NFA crap to try and garner support in both the Senate and House. We can't let up on this folks, we need to keep writing and calling. I have been sending out stuff to all my Senators and House members. As it's written, she knows she has some chance in the Senate, but no chance in hell that it will pass in the House. She also wants to be able to say that at least she tried to push it through. I am also concerned about the whole Reid/McDonnell thing going on now about the filibuster rules that are being discussed. Just my 2 cents.
You really think they are going to immediately ban all guns overnight with no problems? You really think they have the votes for that? Feel free to think that will happen, but seriously I am just saying I am getting a little tired of people doing the chicken little dance every day.
I do follow what's going on, but the things I was talking about like avoiding the range because "the government will track you and soon bust down your door" is just a bit much.
Creepily, the Feinstein monster is putting 2A on the defensive by shifting the question from one of upholding the Constitution, as she's sworn to do, to garnering popular opinion as being superior to the Constitution. The longer she keeps her pet bill in the spotlight, the more popular support it gets simply by its PR drive. It's like an incessant infomercial for the downfall of 2A. It lives.
Don't get scared. This will NOT pass. Alot of states are already implementing their own state-wide policies to combat ANY Federal regulation against the 2nd Amendment. I'm over being nervous and scared. I'm just playing the waiting game on re-supplying ammo, magazines and saving for my next firearm. Even found a 2nd parttime job to help out! :) I've done enough emailing and calling my state reps in South Carolina and I'm positive the message has been received. My parents still live in Missouri and have noticed how the state reps from SC are against this current administration. They're not letting anything pass in this state that implodes on the 2nd amendment or other freedoms. I had an arguement this morning with a democrat co-worker telling me the 2nd amendment is outdated and its time to move on. I almost lost it in a fit of rage. He just doesn't "Get it". I can't fix stupid.
Let it die. What is wrong with this woman. Is she so focused on this that she ignores the real issues about mental illness and criminals having guns. So rather than fix the root issue, she slaps a band aid on it and punishes everyone.
Just take a look around you at what is happening in this country. How anyone can be so blind and a gun owner amazes me. America is declining rapidly. Lots of folks, some on this very board no less openly stated that Obama won't go after the guns. What is the administrations number one platform priority for this term? Gun control. Wake up in get in the fight already, what in the darn heck more needs to happen for you to realize our way of life and our values are under threat?
To call me blind is absolutely ridiculous and without merit whatsoever.
What exactly do you want us to do? You act like we are hiding in the basement or something. I have contacted all my reps, I am a NRA and GOA member. I pay attention, but I also realize something many people forget. I still have to live my life. I'm not retired yet, I still have bills and things to do. I'm supposed to be afraid to go to the range because they ask for my ID? Really...and what exactly does someone do then? Not shoot at all? That is not an option. Next you'll be telling us not to go to the store because they have you on camera and know what type of boxers you're buying and that by buying brand x you are labeled a terrorist.
And its okay because RFID chips are real (passports, drivers licenses, medical records, your dogs flesh, even in your food products), geo tracking is real (Black boxes in all cars made in 2014 onwards, Cell phone GPS chips, children being forced to wear GPS devices while in school, etc...), cell phone snooping is real (court cases and lawsuits prove it), chemtrailing is real (http://contrailscience.com/contrail-or-chemtrail/), Police state concealed weapons scanners now being tested in NewYork (http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/...icle-1.1245663), do I need to go on? I wont waste the time because you aren't listening. Its okay we will listen for you. As far as running to the hidey hole, no one except the fringe paranoid delusional are doing that. Most people that you apparently disregard as being normal are infact just living a life of minimal exposure to a system designed to collect and harness every piece of information they can to control you and or force you to do stuff.
... as for the OP, your title is incorrectly emphasized. The BAN is not coming, it is being proposed like the quoted person above said. The title is inaccurately depicting what is happening. Now you may be right in the sense that a ban is coming but its not here yet.
