I’m a north FL freeper transplanted from Kali, CCW since I got here a few years back. Try to stay active...
My guess is that the next phase is going to come and shockingly fast. Today already we have Obama weeping and choking up, and all flags at half-mast.
Next week will be 20 tiny tot coffins with precious teddy bears on top, and photos and home videos galore. It will be the most heart-wrenching show ever produced by the White House-Hollywood-MSM alliance.
A bill will be proposed. If it’s not this one, it may be worse. But this at least. A total ban on magazines capable of holding more than ten cartridges. (Or, ten may be one over the limit, with ten-rounders banned.)
No buyback, no compensation, no grandfather, no sunset. Instant felon if you’re found with an eleven-round “massacre magazine.” This is how Hollywood/MSM will produce this episode over the next two weeks.
Christmas Eve, with all of the tiny tot funerals. The tears will pour like Niagara.
Only a few weak-kneed RINOs in the House need to roll over, and they will. This bill will pass like lightning, we may be shocked how fast.
I thought it would pass in the year after Gabby Giffords, but I was wrong. Let’s see what happens now.
I hope I’m wrong, again.
Sadly more effective than shots into a packed stadium of football fans.
Amazingly prescient fiction, Matt.
May God have mercy on us all, and especially those families directly affected.
For FReepers who haven’t read them - go here:
Your wise words are exactly what I’ve been thinking all day, FRiend.
Honored to have you at our side.
It won’t be a 10 round ban.
I will be a complete ban on handguns and rifles. Maybe shotguns also.
Let ‘me try it. They’ll never put me in a cage. Ever.
>A bill will be proposed.<
And don’t expect our spineless congresscritters to object because they know that, should the nation be disarmed, the law will not apply to them.
Their bodyguards will remain armed in order to defend their precious lives.
I agree with that for one reason in particular. That is how 0bamugabe works. He demagogues and he is good at getting results with it. I submit the 'fiscal cliff' situation as the most recent example. 'My way or the highway' is how it will be and he will demonize any Republican who resists. The 'fiscal cliff' and gun control are only going to be the beginning of what this lame duck tin horn dictator is going to do too IMO.
Maybe it will happen as in California.
They wrote the act, then sat back.
They then released (the 7th time)known nut Pat Purdy.
He buys a rifle in Oregon.
Then a handgun in California, even passing the Cali waiting period.
Then he shot up the Stockton School yard, and shot himself.
The act, already written, is brought out and voted on and passes, before the facts came in. And Californians lost their right to own certain rifles.
A bill? Or an executive order?
We WILL see exactly what you said in the coming weeks.
Is there a ‘Police-Force’ (other than the U.S. military) large enough to go door-to-door and confiscate/search our homes or businesses?
Re your post #10, if such a bill becomes law, then our only option, short of risking imprisonment, is to cast our votes against those that enacted such a law, including Republicans—especially Republicans since they would have demonstrated that they are not on our side. That would not be surprise, anyway.
You do realize that this would be just the first in a series of measures to eliminate our gun rights, encirclement and tightening of the noose, if you will.
I think that it is obvious that civil unrest has to follow. If it doesn’t, the next steps will result in loss of liberty, total loss of liberty.
Do you agree?
Good summary Travis; exactly what’s coming.
well now i might actually be able to afford a bunch of mags when the supply is jacked up...
A Freeper had this in his tag line, can't remember who.
Good info on the website w/locations listed. The next program in NE FL is Jan 19-20/Sat & Sun about 9 am to about 4 pm at the A.T.T.A.C./Ancient City Shooting Range off I95 at SR16 (next to the St. Johns County Ag Center). THIS IS NOT yet listed on Appleseeds list; I found out by calling ATTAC trying to get in to the Dec 8/9 program which had a waiting list.
The Liberty tree needs watering ... the sonofbitches running this nation want disarmed cowering victims, depending upon the devil’s own government for their ‘protection’. I for one hope the bastards go too far and start trying to confiscate what is already in private ownership. THEN we can cull the damned oligarchical herd (with votes, first) and gets things going on the right track set by our founders. You would think black people could sort this out sanely, since it was the first ‘democratic’ trick in the South to keep blacks disarmed following the civil war, so they could be ‘herded by the armed ‘government protectors’.
FRiend, I feel that your prediction will prove to be frightenly accurate, especially with regard to the speed at which things will happen.
