Is anyone else nervous about reloading

due to the potential Obama reloading ban? I really want to start reloading but I don't want to be labeled as a criminal. Does anyone else feel like me?

    Not at all. I'm only concerned about being able to acquire all the items on my wishlist before the **** hits the fan.

    You will be a criminal for owning the gun, not just reloading......

    I was originally worried, but not anymore. More and more congressmen/senators (including some of his own democrats) are starting to look between the lines of some of the crap he is putting out, and they are not agreeing with him. Several states have tried for this law, and I beleive 2-3 of them have already shot the laws down ( I can't remember where I read it, if I'm wrong please correct me). You'll always see the liberal a$$es out of California and NY trying, but I don't think it will happen on a federal level.....a state level possibly, but IMO unlikely except for those 2 states. After weighing all this in, I gave in and spent a bunch of money buying reloading stuff/components for 2 of my guns. Now that I did it and really enjoy it, I'll start putting in my orders to try and get the components for my other guns. Just do it, you'll enjoy it even more as bullet prices go up! Not too mention, after 4-8 years a new president can come in and overturn it much like BO overturned a lot of Bush's policies/laws.

    The microstamping stuff is dead the reloading ban as part of the Mexico treaty cannot be ratified....no worries. Buy yourself some reloading gear and you will be worried about important stuff like run out and extreme spreads.

    Ya know, I have some black friends and it's sad to see talk about white hoods. The only reasons I dont like Obama is because of what he stands for, not the color of his skin. I could care less what the president's race or color is.

    Back to the OP. Why should you worry about being a criminal for handloading? There are no laws against it and what's the differnce how you get your ammo... premanufactured off the shelf or in components that you put together? As was already stated, buy some equipment and components and get busy

    +1, I'm proud of our nation for electing a minority president. I feel it is a great step forward from a social perspective. I am very saddened that it was a great step forward from a socialist perspective though. I would have liked to celebrate the first black president, I would have loved to vote for Condi Rice!
