    This will really suck for that fellow I sold my AR and stripped receivers to, should it pass.

    I'm still holding on to hope. Instead of trying for something that "middle of the road" politicians would feel comfortable supporting without losing votes come next election, Feinstein is pushing for an all-encompassing ban that many fence sitters know their constituents will not support, and it could cost them their jobs. Feinstein is nearing retirement, and Barry O obviously doesn't have to worry about reelection, but a lot of other people do.

    I really like that last part...."dedicate funding to the ATF to implement registration".......with a fiscal ruh-roh looming, how much you wanna bet they'll pass the buck and make us foot the bill individually....."oh, you want to register? That'll be $200, plus YOU supply the photo and pay for your fingerprinting".

    Agreed. I'm much less worried about something like this passing than some "compromise" legislation that gains significant moderate republican support. Not a single Republican in the house could ever vote for any piece of legislation with Dianne Feinstein's name on it and not get ousted in a primary in a year and a half.

    Agree. The "compromise" is what I am worried about. My gut says it is going to be something about high cap mags, "gun show loop hole", individual sales oversight, and importation restrictions.

    FOPA 1986 specifically prohibits registration and is a federal law. Like was said above, I don't see this getting passed, it is the watered down version I am worried about. I think if anything passes it will be a slightly expanded version of the 1994 bill but probably have a little more bite to it to prevent them from circumventing it like they did with the post ban stuff like threaded barrels and folding stocks. There will be some compromise and we will get screwed again I am sure.

    The companies worked around the '94 ban and a lot of innovation actually came from it so I am sure if anything gets passed they will find a work around for any future cosmetic bans as well. The baby Glocks came out of the last ban since they only needed to be big enough to fit a 10 round magazine. Plus you can buy threading dies very cheap online and pinned stocks can be "fixed" if one were so inclined.

    I am wondering if it will effect other things such as threaded barrels on bolt action rifles or collapsie stocks on pump shotguns. It only mentions semi autos and pistols.

    Also curious about import restrictions as mentioned above. They worked around that before and import restrictions are ready pretty tight. Curious to see if they try to go after imported ammo or something similar. That would kill the wallet for us combloc rifle shooters.

    You might need it to move the piles of empty brass to get to the hot and empty guns that will be under it. If it is time to bury them then it is time to use them as the constitution intended.

    For years I wanted a real stone bar and a decent pick.

    I have those now and soon will be too decrapid to use same.

    Do you suppose I will have to register them?

    What the heck is an "assault pistol". I don't get how these politicians think. "If I say it's so it must be right." Why do they need to be protected by armed guards? I don't have that luxury. If someone breaks into my house minimum response time for 911 is about 10 minutes (found out when my 4 yr old was playin with the phone) That is assuming I'm able to call.

    Soooooo, if you have to regiater them through the NFA, and you dont have a trust set up, who gets the guns?

    Screw registration. If we stand up as a group the law will be unenforceable. We need to be more militant this time. We have the numbers. I refuse to return to the oppression of California.

    Unfortunately, any pistol with an accessory rail will accept a bayonet.

    Thank K-Bar for that.
    Even though it is a squirt gun in the pic, the bayonet is real;
    functional or not is another issue.

    I'm contemplating a solution.....

    Step 1- Intelligent, responsible gun owners of California- move out!
    Step 2- Morons throughout the country who agree with Feinstien- move to California.
    Step 3- California doesn't need to secede, we vote them out of the Union and let them have the oppressive dictatorship they think is so right.

    We all know that Registration leads to Confiscation. If any Gooberment knows you have them, they can more easily take them away. Same old horse manure from the Brady Bunch, but this time they have a lot more public sentiment in their favor because they artfully exploited the massacre of those children.

    Any possiblity that Feinstein could be appointed the new ambassador to Yemen? Maybe Bloomberg could be her deputy!

    The other day I heard some polititian refer to Mags as " High Capacity cartridges" ... I think it may have been that dip-stick David Gregory. He sure "brow-beat" old Wayne on Meet The Press..then when Chuckie Schumer came on, I thought he was going to swap spit with him!

    There is no compromise. Period. You want to talk compromise, move along and let the big boys play.
    This is a no holds bar assault on your 2A rights, make no mistake about it.
    This single piece of legislation may very well lead to the next civil war.

    Get busy then because they will silp it in as part of the debt/spending/budget bills!

    How about writing some proposed letters and post them here, not just post scary messages.

    I sent this as a start:

    "These are trying times and the debt, budget, and debt are foremost in the attention of you and Congress.

    It is during times like this that we are depending on you to protect the 2D Amendment and prevent any anti 2D Amendment legislation from being slipped into other important legislation."

    I think short and to the point and often is important.

    While you're writing, encourage your reps to lobby for appointing Sweinstein ambassador to Yemen. Her staff could include Schumer, Bloomberg, and Sarah Brady.
