If by “suspend”, he means “on back order for the next three years”, he might be fairly accurate. If the gun control nuts keep this up, the Mexican drug cartels will make more money smuggling “assault weapons” into the US, for sale, than drugs.

Imagine the puzzlement from the ATF agent when he gets an offer from a Mexican criminal to buy a “genuine Fast & Furious gun, with certified legal papers signed by Attorney General Holder. Ees legal in the US!”

Send the duffel bag back to the president of Dick's Sporting Goods and tell him to shove his decision to go against We the People into his bag, along with his balls. Tell him you and the rest of us have what it takes to defend our rights, and the word is out that no one should shop at Dick's Sporting Goods. Let's make good on this, and support those who are on our side, as we have with Chik-fil-A and others.

LOL! Ever notice Chucky Boy always opens his yap on the week-end? This schmuck can’t get enough of hearing and seeing himself on the news. He always pick the week-end though so it’s not till Monday before anybody can counter his bs. He’s the worst piece of crap ever to stink up the Senate.

Gun control has done zero for New York City. I wish these liberals would stop exporting bad ideas. We need guns to protect ourselves from the nuts, druggies, and criminals. Why can’t these politicians figure that out? It’s obvious. We don’t have the armed security details. We have to fend for ourselves.

Sounds to me like the democrats are casting around for a means of restricting guns that looks like they didn’t do it.

It carries the odor of fear.

New Jersey's ban is actually (and uniquely among all 57 states) a semi-automatic with anything over 15 rounds (for now, you wouldn't believe the bills the 'rats have introduced). New Jersey's 1990 ban included the Marlin Model 60, a semi-automatic tubular magazine .22 rifle as an "assault rifle".

"2C:39-1y."Large capacity ammunition magazine" means a box, drum, tube or other container which is capable of holding more than 15 rounds of ammunition to be fed continuously and directly therefrom into a semi-automatic firearm.

The key though, is "semi automatic". If it was a lever action or bolt action rifle, it could hold >100 rounds and still would be legal. Oh, and just to make it interesting "NJS 2C:39-1w(3) "Assault Weapon" means a semi-automatic shotgun with either a magazine capacity exceeding six rounds, a pistol grip, or a folding stock."

So, depending, the NJ magazine limit can be 6 rounds, 15 rounds, or no limit at all. You almost need a law degree to own a gun in New Jersey!

If that's the case what does the Army do to defend themselves when they are attacked? There must be a defense unit that is trained specifically in the use of defense weapons.

My local gun store owner tells me that all the warehouses have stopped shipping until they see what will happen. That makes no sense when there is massive profit to be made unless someone is pressuring them.

Gee Chuck, if you were not such an honest and upstanding servant of the people, I might just think you were trying to saturate the issue to the point where people are so sick of hearing you libs bitch that they just say to hell with it and give in.

But since you swore an oath to uphold the very thing you are bitching about, surely there is some doublesupersecret plan afoot to maintain our Constitutionally guaranteed rights bestowed by God, AKA ‘Our Creator”, and you really do take your oath seriously...right?

I mean you CAN read, can’t you?

yeah until one of those f&f guns is used in the US to kill a person of more importance than a mere Border Patrol Agent, the persons who conspired to run them to narco terrorists will remain free and unindicted.

It would break my heart to see one used against someone in the Administration who thought up and ran that idiotic program,/s

It would be fun to ask a liberal exactly what guns a person would be entitled to own and use that could not be the subject of regulation, because it would cross the line against unreasonable regulation.

I suppose it would not have an answer, any more than the question, “what policy decisions for the current democratic party are different from the policy decisions of the communist party?”

Or, what forms of marriage are not permitted according to modern liberals? Can you marry animals, multiple spouses, children, dead people? What are the current limits of a person’s right to “love” someone.

New Jersey's 1990 ban included the Marlin Model 60, a semi-automatic tubular magazine .22 rifle as an "assault rifle".

So then it was the Marlin Model 60 in you image that could hold more than 15 rounds of .22 short, making the normally 14 round .22 LR rifle illegal.

Will the Marlin even cycle with .22 short?

“Wow, Cool. I have an assault rifle in my closet and didn’t even know it.”

According to his definition of an assault weapon being a semiautomatic rifle, I bought one yesterday along with a multi-cartridge (see, I didn't use the word “bullet”) magazine. Imagine that, an assault rifle from Kentucky, the land of Daniel Boone - ole' Daniel would be proud.

Check out the Kentucky Gun Company on the web if you need a gun/rifle. I love that place after days of searching for that rifle.

I saw on FR a post that said Hussein likely will have an executive order to ban the sale of semiautomatic rifles until congress can write a law. Does that mean if congress never passes such a law that the executive order will stand - not go away?

“My local gun store owner tells me that all the warehouses have stopped shipping until they see what will happen.”

If a buyer has already paid for the rifle but it hasn’t been shipped to him/her yet, then the buyer owns it now and that is before Hussein stops the sale of them. I have bought one, paid for it, it’s in the store but hasn’t been shipped yet.

Anyone trying to buy AFTER Hussein bans them, couldn’t buy one.
