"I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution, which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." -1792, James Madison
There are always too many Democratic, Republican and never enough U.S. congressmen.
Now that the election is over, it is amazing how accurate news stories are.
Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
What is a gun-store ban near a school or park gonna do?
Oh, look Timmy, a gunstore, we just got out of middle-school, lets go buy one? Uh... no...
And camping is a great time to be armed, never know whats gonna jump out and attack you, human or not!
I really must say that alot of this stuff scares me, and I'm very glad democrats didn't get the 60 needed in the Senate.
Oklahoma now has a Republican controlled Senate...I do not think gun laws will change here.
What needs to be understood is that the Executive branch does not change the gun laws. They can lean a particular direction...and gun carry in parks would be an example...but changing the laws is another story entirely.
I also don't think the Republicans are going to fall on the sword over AWB...they will save their negotiating power for other major areas such as SCOTUS nominees.
Too many of these guns have been slipping out at night reeking havoc on the little uns while we sleep. I have resorted to locking mine in a safe. So they cannot get out. [sarcasm off]
There are many ways that an executive order can affect gun owners. With a sweep of a pen all Military surplus returns will be gone. Good by to CMP guns. And all the history of the Garand and Carbine will be gone to the crusher and lost forever. Also military surplus cheap ammo. By edict. All can be gone with the stroke of a pen.
Yes... the AWB will be one of those things that they can accomplish that doesn't cost money. I expect them to go for some of these fairly early since they can then say they "accomplished something" without spending any money.
That would close down most gun stores in any city that I have ever been to. Where I live gun stores would only be allowed in the country. they would probably use this to close down gunsmiths located in towns also.

It has been widely reported that as a state senator he said he supported a Federal legislation of this ban.
The feds have used blackmail in the past to get state to pass laws, remember the 55 mph speed limits? That was done by threatening to withhold funds until the states gave in.
Gun owners seem to be far more gullable than I once believed. I cannot believe that people who support 2A rights would even think twice about supporting a candidate from Chicago, but I guess a bunch must have.
The people get what they deserve.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
Up until a few months ago, that low unemployment rate and super low interest rates really beat everyone up.
They went out and bought houses they couldn't afford, ran up credit cards living the high life and now have to pay the piper.
No one took a beating for 8 years.

We didn't take a real beating until the liberals took over congress.
