Here in Virginia, I think so; but probably not so much in New York.
...At what exact point, then, should one resist the communists?...
How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: what
would things have been like if every Security operative, when he
went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether
he would return alive and had to say good bye to his family?
Or if during periods of mass arrests people had not simply
sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang on the
downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had
understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the
downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes,
hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand...the Organs
(police) would very quickly have suffered a shortage of
officers...and, notwithstanding all of Stalins thirst, the
cursed machine would have ground to a halt.

Yes. It very well could be. The left believes the Constitutiion is a living breathing document that should change with the times. That means it's vulnerable to the latest fad. It's changeable on a whim.
A nation without laws becomes lawless. Lawlessness leads to chaos.
Take a look at the Mossberg 500 series.
RE: “Join the NRA.”
I did join recently — still have no gun but hey, gotta start somewhere! They sent me a cute baseball cap and some stickers!

No FRiend. You may use .38 ammo in a .357, but not vice versa.....same with .44 special in a .44 mag, Makes it nice with a .357, you can let mom plink with .38 and then load the .357 rounds when you need the extra power.
RE: “You can relax, he won’t take our guns away.
He’ll just get the Congress to pass a $1000 tax on each box of ammunition. That’ll do the trick. No 2nd Amendment problems.”
Here’s a really dumb question from one who may want to purchase a firearm — does the ammo have a “shelf-life?” If one wants the firearm just for home protection, and hopefully it would never need to be used, would purchasing a small amount of ammo be OK? I don’t like the sound of that huge tax increase on ammo!
Not only is it a lie, but we have been told by sellers, he intends to increase the tax on ammo by 500%!
It isn’t just guns flying off the shelf, it is ammo. If you are a hunter, it will cost you dearly for ammo under the One.
Will this be America’s new flag?
Ammo tax is akin to a poll tax.
A gun is worthless, little more than a functional door-stop without ammo, and additionally people have the right to bear arms to protect themselves, and thus, also have the RIGHT to reasonably priced ammo.
IMO, unreasonable taxes on ammo are unconstitutional using this ratiocination.
LOL! Thanks that is the first laugh I have had since 4 Nov.
That’s what I was thinking. I did a lookup, though, and there was a “Pittman Robertson” excise tax of 11% passed 25 yrs ago.
Of course, the key word would be “excessive”. Anything deemed “excessive” would be ruled a de facto national gun ban and would be ruled by a sane (assumption) USSC to be a violation of their 2nd amendment ruling earlier this year.
It does....but if stored properly, i.e. without large temp swings, 20-30 year old ammo works just fine. I am shooting 1970's military surplus ammo that works just fine. When ammo goes bad....the brass tends to discolor, or the primers fail. Bottom line.....Buy Lots Of Ammo Today....BLOAT!
Nah. Oboma is printing up new Hammer and Sickles as we type.
You should be getting one in the mail shortly.
“Heres a really dumb question from one who may want to purchase a firearm does the ammo have a shelf-life?”
Not a dumb question. If kept in good shape, ammo can last for decades. I have shot surplus WW 2 ammo before.
“Let me get this straight. In your state when an issuing judge retires, his rulings are void? That’s insane.”
Want to hear more insanity? In my town we now have garbage police.
Garbage to be in clear bags, inside cans.
Put it out before 6pm you get a fine.
Have them spot full cans in your yard ( not at the curb )missing a lid you can get a fine.
Have the strapping young garbage haulers decide your can is one pound over 40, they leave it.
He would also have to get through the SC.
