The next major incident involving "assault weapons", hi capacity handguns, or even an attempt on the POTUS, will bring a dirge of legislation aimed at law-abiding gun-owners.

Im not sayin, I'm just sayin...
Imbecilic drivel... :-(

Is anyone doing anything about that?? Wel its like trying to bail out the ocean with a teaspoon, the city council will pass new laws as fast as the Supreme Court rules them illegal. Ya cant beat city hall when it’s as crooked as the one in DC.
