FWIW I can see the writing on the wall and I sold my AR-15 yesterday for about $150 more than what I had in it. I seriously doubt that there will be a “grandfather clause” in the new AWB. They will ban them all across the board and I figured that I might as well get my money out of it before it became “worthless.”

WTF? Playing right into their hands. Instead you should practice that timeless Texas motto of “Come and Take It!”. I am glad the guys at Goliad and the Alamo didn’t feel that way.
They can come get mine if they want but it won’t be fun.
Must I put your spine limper than Warner's and Machin's....at least they sold out for lucrative jobs and popularity amongst their "kind"....do you really only value your birthright at $150? Peace of Jesus to you brother, but man up. No one will get to sit this one out....if your claim is really just a red herring to hold out to the agents when they come to your house and you bow to lick their boots.....beg to be passed over. It won't work. It never does. What will you think of yourself then? No arms. No honor. No hope. Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say 'what should be the reward of such sacrifices?' Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen! FIGHT now when it is cheap and easy. Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little. ― Edmund Burke Start the counter-attack

. http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml has mailing addresses and e-mails. http://www.conservativeusa.org/links/complete-email-fax-list/?/mega-cong.htm has faxes (efax is free for first 20 faxes a month) and phone numbers in excel and cvs files.... Does anybody else have any other suggested weapons for the digital battlefields of our rights other than sell it for more than you got in it?
I'm less and less enamored with high tech weapons over the years anyway.
Military or hunting weapons with internal mags - pump, lever, or semi-auto - are not classified as “assault rifles”, at least currently, and strike me as much more reliable than the high tech stuff. They, and the low tech AKs and SKS (internal mag!), will be running long after the AR-15s are a distant memory, IMO.
When SHTF, whether government forces or hoodied zombies, ain't no way to get replacement parts of have an available gunsmith to keep the high techs running. And, as the sergeant said in We Were Soldiers, when the time comes, there will be lots of those weapons lying around by their fallen owners if you want one.
My eyesight and manual dexterity, coupled with other aspects of growing old, also make certain weapons more practical than others. They also make any thoughts of going out on extended ops or maneuvers rather silly, and there is no organized group of fellow “soldiers” to practice such ops with anyway. I see mostly defensive guerrilla tactics when the time comes, not pitched battles, nor urban house clearing, at least not for me. Where I live in the Northwest rain-forest, visibility is limited - iron sights do me fine (and after SHTF, the batteries will die on the high tech sites).
For a handgun, I'm a 1911 fan. Small capacity mags, yes, but they won't be banned as easily at first, and I see the pistol as a side arm anyway, a backup weapon, not a primary defensive or offensive weapon.

Buy a 10 yard dump truck full of rocks and a slingshot, then you should be fine.
My AR will rust 6’ in the ground before I would sell it. I will risk losing the $1600 + the money I have in the optics rather than surrender to these clowns.
On Sunday, I bought a new shotgun and two cases of shells.
Good luck with your rocks and slingshot.

Are you a member of Boehner's spelunking club?
