    I tend to believe a ban is forthcoming at some point -- I'm guessing when it comes it will grandfather existing ones.

    I really hope you're right about the grandfather clause, if it comes to that.

    I hate to be cynical but the Trump presidency has been blamed for lagging gun sales....

    When Obama was elected, gun sales skyrocketed. There were ammo shortages as people stocked up. You know how competitive our president is. Throw a little scare out there and see what it does for sales.

    I don't know about anyone else but that reads more as a definite "maybe" to me and nothing set in concrete, just something to placate the media.

    If people think that a ban on AR type rifles is imminent, it will drive sales.

    Right now, it's a maybe, but it's disturbing that it would even be considered.

    That doesn't give me any warm and fuzzies. If he truly emphasizes security measures in the schools, I'm good with that.

    Though I donít think itís likely, given the short attention span of congress and the American people, a assault weapons ban wonít come from the executive branch.
    Our president appears to very malleable, and will be steered into rightfully believing itís not in his best interest.

    However, when he thinks about all those Moms whose vote he might swing if he does it, who knows which side heíll end up on.

    I know Republicans love to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory but even they canít be stupid enough to pass an AWB in this political climate. Ryan would have to know he would no longer be Speaker.

    It may grandfather existing ones but I doubt it will have a 10 year sunset provision like the last one did.

    I ordered my Colt AR15A4 from Bud's Saturday and paid with an E check for the discount. I checked today and they were sold out and my order was still pending. I'm just hoping that they'll have reserved one for me.

    If a theoretical ban is passed without a grandfather clause that would be a taking under the Fifth Amendment which would require the gun grabbers to pay fair market value for each rifle turned in. That is tens of billions of dollars that would have to come from somewhere.
