I laughed out loud when I read this title. I wondered if they actually considered confiscation.

When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    Stuff like that is why I hosted a build party last August. Let's say there are a few hundred extras out there. Hopefully with others around the country tens of thousands with spam cans are safe.

    Given that the ban is really a trade embargo against Russia that just so happens to conveniently cover two gun companies, I highly doubt that they considered confiscation. This isn't a gun issue, it's a Russia issue that happens to include guns. As another member has said here before, two birds with one stone, but barely since we can still get AK's from every other country out there that builds and exports them.

    FAR MORE INTERESTING is the link below the article "10 things the gun industry won't tell you."

    As are the comments below this other link, rubbish.

    If they wanted to damage Russia economically, why not impose an embargo on vodka?
