THE FUTURE FOR GUN OWNERS?

edited October 2008 in Ask the Experts
Has anyone seen or heard about the upcoming change in government making big change to gun ownership? The new government change intending to make life almost impossible to a gun owner, with registration, limiting the number of guns allowed to own, highly taxing guns & ammo, prohibiting transfers, interstate shipment & selling at gun shows & selling/giving/inheriting between individuals, eliminate pre-1898 and C&R categories?

As much as they would like to do that, can they really do it? Are there enuf of us gun owners to prevent that? What can we do to protect ourselves?

Edit reply: What statements? All were questions. Yes we have the 2nd Amendment but a change of a seat on the Supreme Court could change that. Good idea re General Forum.

    You need to post thin in the general discussion column. I am sure this subject will get some hits there. Have you got any documentation to back up these statements? I have to believe that with the supreme court decision recently, and all the new PRO gun law suits this has started, the anti's are going to have their hands full for a while.

    I think that this has the potential for being a good discussion based on the expertise of our members who are involved in the industry on daily basis. Facts and factual information will be most appropriate.

    Please remember that this is Ask the Experts and not any other forum. Please keep the discussion germane to the question so that the lines don't get blurred to much.

    Best.

    This is an easy one. Democrat wins, we have many problems. Republican wins, not so much problems. Even with a worse case event, we will hopefuly survive, but look for more restrictions and taxes on guns and ammo plus a lot of loose interpretations of existing rules and a lot of things done just because they can.

    Use 'em or lose 'em.

    Watch for the Fudds, like Cooper Arms, throw the rest of us unwashed "under the bus", much akin to some of the Jews ratting out on their fellows in the mid to late 1930s, in the vain hope that they'll be herded onto the boxcars last, or not at all.
