Mark my words - there will be legislation for a "National Firearms Identification Card" very soon.

You will be fingerprinted and all of your personal information will be collected.

When the weapons become illegal or are required to be registered, they will know just where to come to get them.

Just one final statement.
I've been sitting here getting more and more fed up with all of this talk about these, pieces of machinery, having no legitimate sporting purpose, no legitimate hunting purpose, people, that is not the point of the second amendment!
The second amendment is not about duck hunting, and I know I'm not going to make very many friends saying this, but it's about our right, all of our right to be able to protect our selves from all of you guys up there.

Be it Costa Rica or the United States, the big wave in immigration is responsible for much of the crime rate. Morton Grove type gun control laws invite more crime. Kennesaw Mountain type pro-gun laws deter crime.

So the Dems favor liberal immigration policies and more gun control laws and.....more crime.

When will the democrat madness end?

Never...these people are deranged. Here we are, at the birth of a war with a lunatic "religion" which has promised to kill us all...and our "elected representatives" are proposing to disarm us? It's not only madness, it is suicidal....the outcome, if they are sucessful, is going to get a great number of Americans killed.

It absolutely makes no sense.

Makes one wonder about the sanity of the people who actually "voted" for these people.

Kind of embarassing, really, knowing that I am country-mates with so many people who haven't a clue as to the danger that they are in.

"Mark my words - there will be legislation for a "National Firearms Identification Card" very soon.
You will be fingerprinted and all of your personal information will be collected."

The state already does this when you by a gun or put in for a concealed carry permit. Back before the Brady Bill, you had to fill out a form to buy a gun. Took about five minutes, but there was still a state record of who bought the gun.

Hmmm, I only have two named long guns and one shotgun that meets the named criteria.

I need to go shopping, I wonder if the Congresswoman would mine if I used her bill as a shopping list?

It's good to be concerned about these things, but McCarthy trots this out every year. If you want to see a Dem congresscritter shake and shiver, mention this bill and then whisper "1994" in their ear.

The Democrats can't help themselves. This particular legislation among others, contributed to their losing the House in 1994. And like someone picking on a scab, the Democrats seem addicted to gun control despite the fact its a vote loser. Insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results.

The same goes for republican Giuliani. The GOP hasn't learned anything yet. It's gonna get a lot darker for the party until the leadership in the GOP(and we the people)start acting on principles instead of fear.

America is sliding into the socialism. Plain and simple.

Socialism means and has meant that government bureaucrats will be the haves and the citizenry will all be wearing the same clothes, eating the same food, (when it's available), living in the same kind of house, taking the same buses, thinking the same thoughts, saying the same words, and pledging elegance to the father of our new country.

Some folks thought that socialism was a thing of the past. Think again.

Some kooky paranoia? I hope so. Not possible? No, very possible.

Here's the question everybody ought to ask Rudy:

"Mayor Giuliani, do you support the renewal of the AWB currently before Congress, and if it came to your desk as president, would you sign it?"

`(iv) a fixed magazine capacity of more than 5 rounds.

This does not specify the shell! Aguila makes Mini-shells that are 1.5" OAL loaded, and you can fit a bunch into a tube that holds 5 3" shells- certainly six- and you can fit 6 into a tube designed for 3 3" shells, so almost ANY semiauto shotgun becomes covered under the law.

they will know just where to come to get them.

In some states that information would not do the government a bit of good. :)

"An M1 Carbine is an assault rifle?"

Actually it's one of the few one the list that really is an assault rifle. After all, it was designed for combat troops. Now the last time I heard it was used in the commission of a crime was.... nope, it hasn't been; just as most others on the list haven't. This is the red herring that the leftists use to disarm the American people of weapons that actually could be useful against government troops. The very weapons protected by the 2nd amendment! The term "bear arms" is only used in a military/combat-against-Man context. (You do not "bear arms" against a deer in the woods!)

"...City of Kennesaw..."

Right, I was thinking the city was called Kennesaw Mountain like the nearby battlefield. Congressman Larry McDonald represented that area. His district ran from Marietta through Rome and on up to the Chattanooga suburbs. I was a campaign boy for his '82 reelection and stayed long term in a motel located about where Marietta fades into Kennesaw.

Aren't you glad the "true conservatives" taught the GOP a "lesson" in 2006?

Arn't you glad our "represenatives" ignored fair warnings? Those idiots are supposed to represent their constituents, not rule to spite them.

When the weapons become illegal or are required to be registered, they will know just where to come to get them.

And we, in turn, will know just where to start shooting.

FMCDH!

Good old Larry. I used to meet him periodically at the Stone Mountain Highland Games. We used to laugh at him because he wore baby blue boxer shorts under his kilt, and they showed.

He was right all along about the commies, though . . . and they got him just like he said they would . . .
