    I'm upset that our AG in PA isn't on the list. I even went to a fund raiser for him last year. I'll have to send him a note expressing my displeasure.

    The issue is obviously the actual, factual support for such things by many current members of the Administration, senate and congress. It was on BHO's written platform statement. It was part of Holder's initial 60 days' trumpeting. It's been Schumer's goal since birth, no doubt. It's no secret agenda in the offices of Schumer/Clinton/Hagan/Wu and many others. And what on earth is Biden doing, hiding in the hole he's in, with the burning desire he's got to crush firearms access in America? Mutual interest and support was publicly claimed during the recent discussions with Mexico's prez. It was in the text of H.R. 6257. It'll be in the text of upcoming attempts, no doubt.

    This move is a preemptive statement of unity against the real threat. Slacken the vigilance or, worse, bury the heads sand, and it'll become real ... sure as sunshine.

    Remember: it's about control. A little or a lot doesn't matter to many of these dangerous twits. It's about control. Of you, me and every other citizen.

    A simple search on DC of subject=AWB finds several prior discussions, a few with specific links to thomas.loc.gov text of actual bills.

    Doesn't matter if there is a bill or not. If there is not one now,there will be soon. The socialists never rest until freedom as we know it is completely destroyed.

    Look at some of the big names in office that have subverted our government.

    Obama,Biden,Pelosi,Clinton,Holder to name a few. Actions speak louder than words here.

    If that roster ain't enough to scare the britches off of every freedom loving American in the U.S. then nothing will.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Yeah, New York, Illinois and Mexifornia must've overlooked it also. Probably were on vacation or something.

    I'm willing to bet Tom Corbett from PA is against an AWB as well... I'm actually rather surprised he isn't listed.

    This will get opened back up shortly. We're drifting in to non-gun related politics...

    Several posts have been removed for being non-gun related politics. Id anyone doesn't know our policy re: Non-firearm related politics, you can read it here: Political content on this forum

    Now back to the topic.

    While there is no current legislation in the works, lets not forget the following:

    1: Previously on Obama's website, one of the administrations goals was to reinstate the AWB and make it permanent, this was listed under the urban policy if I'm not mistaken.

    2: AG Holder all ready shot himself in the foot back in Feb calling for the reinstatement of the ban.

    3: Senator Feinstein has said that while now is not the time, but "the time and place" will be chosen, you can watch the video on that HERE .

    4: HR45 is still floating around out there, which is more than the previous AWB.

    5: The past history of Obama and his appointees is anti-gun.

    I don't think the 23 AG's sent that message regarding current legislation, but legislation to come, whenever that may be. Do I think it will be soon? No, if it comes at all (which I think it will) it will be after a second term, and I for one am glad to see state's AGs speaking up against it before it even rears it's ugly head.

    That's exactly right. My mistake. Those people you mentioned are actively trying to subvert the Constitution and destroy our freedom. Actions do speak louder than words and their words alone make them guilty. I applaud the state AGs that have spoken up to preemptively thwart the inevitable assault on our rights, which is certain based on history.

    One can only wonder what the other AGs were thinking.

    Perhaps a gun friendly legislator should introduce a bill that prohibits the Federal government from infringing on the right to keep and bear arms instead of idly waiting for upcoming and unstoppable weapons ban legislation.

    SD,

    Do you honestly believe that the administration under Obama will not try to enter any form of "assault weapons" ban. I'm not talking about right now, but in the next 4-8 years.

    Honestly, they don't have the votes. Yes, there are a number of prominent, outspoken politicians that want to ban guns. Obama is at the top of the list. However, while Obama was quite capable of promoting an anti gun agenda as a state legislator in Illinois, that didn't fly in the Senate and won't fly as President. The one thing that Obama hates more than guns is failing on any level. He has already been told that the AWB will not succeed. There is no nationwide support for an unconstitutional ban, which is why the AWB was allowed to expire under democrat control.

    It is important to note there are two types of anti gun politicians. The first are the total control socialists. The other group, people who can still form an objective opinion, believe that gun bans will reduce crime and killing. Those are the people that are being swayed by well presented arguments and they are the reason that many states have furthered our cause with concealed carry laws and justifiable self defense laws.

    Where the Constitution is unambiguous, as in the Second Amendment, even the most anti gun politicians recognize they have no support of the majority.

    Banning semi automatics (in the context of handguns) is not even on the radar.

    I'm not talking about right now, but in the next 4-8 years.
    God help us if he is still in office Jan 21, 2013.
