It gives them something to aim for in 2013. They have the best salesman in the world on their side now. LOL

I bought a number of Rugers this year to add to those I've purchased over the years. I've always been satisfied with them.

I think this quote from the article sort of says it all;

“The Federal government has literally purchased billions of rounds of ammunition in the last two years. Coupled with the riot gear and cross-training of local law enforcement and military for domestic policing and detention operations, many believe they are gearing up for something big.

“Moreover, the same government that is obviously mobilizing for some undisclosed future threat, is simultaneously taking steps to disarm American citizens.”

You filled out a form 4472 that certified that you weren't crazy (as if you are qualified to self diagnose), you aren't a felon (because felons don't lie on government forms), and gave your name and address and all of that. That form, stays in a book that resides with the dealer. The BATF can inspect it, but by federal law, they can't keep a list of who bought what (not that they wouldn't break the law either).

The background check goes to a clerk who does an NCIC check. Federal law, once again, forbids keeping records of exactly who got the background check.

I'd rather know all those details than be able to deliver a baby... I've seen that done. Wimmenz are strong.

if you buy from a store you will be the first in line to be paid a visit if guns are banned.

So will the seller of the gun you purchased from........Don't forget, his purchase was recorded too and I'm sure he'd be more than willing to give your name and address if offered a deal.....

Can y’all cool it with the boating accident crap?

That's wishing for something that won't happen and won't ever be. It's a long wait where a train don't come.

Fuming at the world as it is reduces your ability to enjoy life today. Deep breath, double shot of something from Tennessee, and Merry Christmas.

Uncle Sam isn't going to depend on local police or military to get the job done. The Federal Agents will do the dirty work as they already proved in Waco back in '93.

I like the photos in the story of the Las Vegas gunstore with people lined up outside. Too many younger folks been using their money and time night-clubbing and acting like they are celebrities, and now do a giant “OH NO'S!” and need to get armed. If you didn't see the warning signs from the first 4 year of this ass-clown, then you might deserve to pay 3 times more than you could have 9 days ago.

Well, I didn’t know how that worked and thought I did. I thought when the guy did the background check that all my info. answering those questions went to the govn. and they knew right then what gun I bought. Thanks for that info. because that makes me feel better.

I can never be tested to see if I am sane because I know all the right answers to those questions and ink blots to “look” sane since I’ve given many hundreds of them. You, however.....

All the Christian "zealots", including myself, that I know are heavily armed and would not turn in anyone. In fact, they would be the backbone of any resistance movement.

That is why the petty tyrant in our White House is afraid of real Americans - the ones who cling to God and to guns. I pray daily that America will make it through four more terrible years as a free country and without a second civil war. It's a good thing that God is in the miracle business.

Failure to turn in a weapon and thus becoming a felon passively by default is certainly something to be concerned about;

How many otherwise law abiding citizens are armed in states where concealed carry is deemed illegal or severely restricted?

The question is is our government prepared both in will and in resources to handle from a law enforcement standpoint millions upon millions of citizens becoming felons overnight or atleast in a short time?

I don't believe those in favor of people control are dumb enough to attempt it. They will try other angles. I won't mention them because I don't want to give the morons any ideas.

Waco tied up a huge amount of their resources, I’m guessing, and they’re pushing now for thousands of simultaneous Wacos - not feasible, IMHO. Time will tell.

many believe they are gearing up for something big.

Many believe the US government planned, financed and executed 9/11. Many believe the Newtown, Ct. slaughter was committed by more than a single shooter using government instituted mind control.

Would you have believed in 2007, the year before Hussein was elected, that we would actually be discussing the feds taking away our guns? I think, in 2007, we would never have believed this possibility could happen.

Just think of George Bush and Cheney saying we have to give up our guns or even one particular gun or one type clip/magazine. No way would they have allowed this to happen. I can see Cheney in full charge getting rid of that idea.

The idea of taking our guns makes me want to buy some more just to spit in their eye.

“....a neighborhood watch that rewards snitches and religious Christian zealots.”

How do you put those two in the same sentence? And what do you consider a “zealot”? Most Bible-believing Christians I know are also gun-toting patriots.

Are you even from this country?

It ain't gonna stop. Regardless of what you or I think. Personally, I'm not trying to sneak around and hide anything I'm doing. My kids are grown and gone, the grandkids have at least met me, and have pictures with me and them, and I'm old enough I don't really care who I piss off. And I don't own a boat.

Anyway... the double shot from somewhere in Tennessee and a Merry Christmas are appropriate. ;)

“Such a “mass felonization” would make a large percentage of Republicans ineligible to vote.”

I was thinking about confiscation of weapons and wonder if each county, based on party affiliation, would make a difference in confiscating guns?

Like my county is about 98% Republican. This is a “Bubba” county in the extreme. Every friend a cop has is a Bubba. Every official in this county is a Republican and all their friends are big gun owners. It seems to me it would be difficult for law enforcement to give in to taking guns from people in this county.

Everyone think about your county. If you live in a very liberal county you could be turned in to the cops by those liberals and the cops might relish taking your guns. They could just prance from house to house taking conservative’s guns, MAKING THEIR COUNTY “SAFE”.

Do you live among conservatives or liberals? If it is liberals, are you thinking about getting out of Dodge with your guns and going to a county where everyone loves their guns?

Does it make a difference or not?

The local constabulary flashes lights in the window (from the street) when they pull up becuase they know I'm hard of hearing and will only meet with them outside.

When I left the keys hanging on the front door for about a week, the cop told me, John, you can't bait like that.

Funny thing, they always look down to see what I'm wearing. ;)

I'm the guy that gets them in trouble because their situational awareness is less than good. I try to make noise when walking up on them, so they don't react badly.

I'm less than worried about the local yokels. I'd catch a bullet for any of them. Even the fat chicks are good people.

Well, I have a better mental picture of you since it is now winter. I think you have pants on now. Note I paged Kart since he is interested in your choice of body coverings as the seasons pass. Just think, if you lived up north, you’d almost have to wear covering clothing most of the year.

“...it is their affair.” Good, so you won't have to “rock their boat” any more about their losing their guns when the boat turned over.

Our gun friends on these threads have been out a lot of money from losing their guns in a boat accident. You don't seem to have empathy for their losses. A pity.

Gun confiscation would require a SWAT team to go door to door like a nationwide Fallugah in every little town and major city in the land, either simultaneously or in blitz fashion.

I guessing it won't look like that.

First, they pass a law making, let's say, AR15s illegal to own.

Then they can use this law to pick up any offender, at their own pace, selectively.

No need to make a dangerous sweep. Just enforce the law as they wish, like they do now.
