Yes, the "Dick Act" and please don't be one on this thread by posting stupid comments. This is "serious stuff" and I'm feeling rather foolish to have not been aware of it prior to yesterday. I'm now trying to understand why I was not aware of it (nor are most people that I've queried on the subject)?

I believe it is worth everyone's time to read into it and give some feedback. Here are some links:

very interesting,



"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

I am pretty much done arguing gun laws, in reference to how we can regain freedom by Courts or politicians.

There remains only one method left.
I merely await the final solution by our masters , and the resultant reaction by Americans.

Fixed it a bit for you.



Just a thought Why would you ask members of a gun forum if you should buy a gun. Kinda like an alcoholic going into a bar to hoping to have someone tell him not to drink.

Anyone who would sacrifice freedom for security deserves neither!!!

Gun control defined: The theory that people who are willing to ignore laws against rape, torture, kidnapping, theft, and murder will obey a law which prohibits them from owning a firearm.

What are MG's for?
Because if you are going to cry out, "Say Hello To My Little Fren" and you are holding a bolt action .22, you have no style.

Problem did this ever pass both houses or did it just die waiting for a vote.

What was the final bill number. That is only a House Resolution. I find nothing other than what those sites post.

After some more searching that Bill may not be found unless you live near a very good law Library. Bills before that are available and several yerars later are available but around that time only hard copies are available.

Hobbyguy;
I understand your position..believe me, I do.

The point I am making over and over is...I personally am too old to place any faith in 'taking it to court' for redress. No ruling reversing gun law with any meaning will happen in my remaining lifetime.
I have been ready to 'go to the streets' since 1968.

I am merely waiting for help.

I have talked to various and sundry lawyers over the years...NONE would attempt a case challenging gun laws strictly on the Second Amendment...pronouncing the effort as futile, and gaining me nothing but jail time.

For you see..you have to 'break' the law, before you can challenge it.
