Re: will the pending ban affect the bolt action aftermarket?

Really guys !? Last I checked there is no way in hades a gun ban is getting through the house and I would be surprised if it could pass in the senate. Then there is the 5 to 4 majority in the supreme court that just established the legal interpretation that the 2nd amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms. Take a deep breath and calm down. Fienstien is going to blow hard and raise a bunch of money but her bill is going nowhere.

i really hope your right about that, however, people like us use logic and common sense on a daily basis and we look to our leaders to do the same and they do the opposite, i dont know about you, but im not looking for them to use common sense when feinsteins bill gets voted on. the only thing we can hope for is the fact that republicans are still the majority of the house. i was watching fox news earlier today and they were talking about gun control and they stated that on jan 1st 2013 9 people were murdered in chicago il, thats actually not the scary part, the mayor is baffled how that could have happened considering there strict gun control laws. im beyond scared right now

We all better hope you're right. After this past November, I'm not so sure about anything anymore.

Firearm owners and pro-gunners are going to have to stand together in some sort of vote at some point, so if you're serious, get involved with your congress person. Treasury Secretary Geitner said a couple of years ago, the 2nd amendment either didn't assure of the right to bare arms or it was unconstitutional. These people want a submissive electorate, they see Socialism as the only way out of the economic mess we are in. Even the Republicans are buckling for votes on issues. It's going to take a grass root effort on our part and potentially boycotting other products to make the consumer understand how people feel about their rights in this country. They are starting to control every aspect of what we do. They are even going to ban smoking in your own home! They got a depression last time they went after vices 1925-33, maybe that's what they think is going to happen now. I think they are worried that in a depression, hard assets like gold and guns are valuable to have. Afterall, food gets scarce and poverty brings more crime. I'm bunkering down baby, Obama knows this country's in a hole. He's afraid this place will look like Greece pretty soon. Then what?

Re: will the pending ban affect the bolt action aftermarket?

I see you are upset. Thats not your usual post. You paragraph and punctuate much better usually.... I feel your pain. It was really brought home to me today.

I spent the afternoon with my attorney (who happens to be a fellow shooter that I shoot with and another friend too. He owns the shop where I buy most all of my rifles and pistols and is also a personal friend. He informed both of us that he's read the Feinstein Bill in it's entirety (or as much as a citizen can read of it) and....

It not only basically bans semi-automatic 'assault' type rifles, but just about every semi automatic, plus bolt action rifles with detachable magazines, pump shotguns, hand guns and pistols with detachable magazines and here's the best part.... (If there is a best part)..... Feinstein wants the government to censure and make illegal any activity that promotes the sale or implementation of firearms, simply put, no gun magazines, no gun shows, no sports mens clubs, no forums, nothing related to firearms whatsoever. In other words, the end.....

Basically, it amputates our sport and pastime at the knees, with a dull hatchet.

Finally, those firearms that Feinstein wants banned, can't be sold, transferred to another owner but have to be forfeited to the government upon the death of the owner. I take that as meaning they get them for zilch.

This whole thing is crazy but remember it was Feinstein who collaborated with Clinton on the Clinton Era gun ban, never forget that. As much as I don't want to see it, I think it has a damn good chance of passing because it's all about Obama's vision for one and two, he's a lame duck, he's not electable again so he might as well ram through what he wants to.

There is a whole lot more, like the 200 dollar per gun registration but thats for another time....

I feel everyone's pain.....

So in other words... she wants to hatchet both the 1st and 2nd amendments... well good luck with that. I won't be giving up or registering any guns... nor will I stop participating in gun promoting activities. They can just drag my carcass off to jail and feed and care for me instead of me feeding and caring for their welfare state.
