    What If...

    I just wanted input from the members of this forum. If this type of question has been posted before, my apologies and ask for you kind indulgence. Worst case scenario results from upcoming election. What can we expect and what type of legislation can we see coming down the pipe? How long would it take it to pass both houses, if it made it that far? Now a related question: How many magazines should I have per rifle, per pistol? Thank you for input.

    What if grass hoppers had machine guns?

    How many mags? At least 6 mags per main rifle/pistol minimum 2 for everything else.

    Regarding the political side of your post, could take days, months, or years.

    It's the Government, it either goes too quick or way to slow.

    Think seriously about investing in cached lower cost today than tomorrow ammunition and ammunition manufacturing equipment, as well as quality pneumatic air guns for sport and/or hunting purposes.

    An out right gun ban will be quite difficult herein the US.
    But restrictions against _ammunition_ and ammunition components such as taxing the cost of ammo same as has been done increasingly toward cigarettes over the past 20 yrs. is a likely avenue of attack and would be lawful as it's not a 'firearm'.

    Bullet, powder, primer, and casing...these are what makes a firearm functional.

    The whole taxing us out of business is just stupid as a deterrent to crime. It only takes how round to kill someone? However, if I am a law biding sportsman shooting on a regular basis I could reasonably shoot 500 rounds a month. The only person you have any effect on is ME and I already pay enough taxes. The BG can just steal enough rounds to kill everyone they want to kill. Add an extra tax on George Clooney movies, or Matt Daemon movies.

    The real threat is that the next president will probably get to nominate at least two Supreme Court justices.

    If Obama nominates two far-left wing Supreme Court justices, that means the Supreme Court would have a left-lean, and would be more likely to pass anti-gun legislation. How far that could go, I have no idea.

    Best case scenario (assuming Obama wins)? They renew the AWB of the 90s (no magazines over 10 rounds, yada yada ya). Worst case scenario? They try to ban concealed carry and stop semiautomatic handgun production, and there are riots in the streets.



    Peace,

    The Supreme Court can't pass legislation. Only Congress can do that. (But I'm sure you know that, and merely mis-spoke).

    True, but they could decide that some Left wing anti gun legislation is constitutional. After all the last decision was only 5 to 4 in our favor.

    The Supreme Court may not be such a big issue in one respect. The next two justices to be replaced are likely Stevens and Ginsburg, who are both older than dirt. So if these two are replaced with liberals the court remains the same. Of course there is danger with the court now, in that Kennedy can go either way and though he decided to side with the conservatives in Heller he may be more into allowing strict regulation under a "mere rational basis" test on later cases. Possibly even upholding certain bans.

    On the other hand, if Stevens and Ginsburg were replaced by conservative-pro 2A justices, the entire complexion of the court would be changed and that would be a good thing IMO.
