The anti-freedom forces are not nearly as much worried about their ban being effective as they are in insuring that firearms are declared illegal without federal permission. Once they have trashed the Second Amendment and established that they *are in charge*, they can continue on with the gradual process of psycological disarmament, where your grandchildren gladly turn in grandfathers old SKS and ammo for an extra food ration.

with the caveat that a Beslan-scale massacre committed with such firearms could energize the gun ban fanatics (and intimidate our congressional "allies")

I really have to wonder if that's what's been happening this month. Let me find my list of February's major nationally-covered shootings:

- Underground bunker guy in Alabama
- King of the Snipers assassinated
- Dorner / LAPD
- Olympics guy in South Africa

Each one of those is a pretty unique story compared to just about anything we've heard of in the past couple of years, and here they are all in one month, one beginning almost literally the day after the previous one ends.

“Feinstein’s bill would also ban 11-round and larger magazines, as would stand alone bills H.R. 138 and S. 33 (ten years of federal prison, for an 11-round magazine).”

Luckily I bought a whole bunch of 10 3/4 round mags to get under the limit.

I would not be surprised if the left would some how orchestrate “a Beslan-scale massacre” just to make sure their agenda is achieved.

The assault weapons ban and the other bans in the bill are only important as bargaining points to”compromise” it down to what they really want and that is universal registration via universal background checks. They may even surrender the “recorded” facet of the UBCs but we all know that everything is recorded, whether it is admitted or not. They want that UBC because that can be followed by extension to ammo and then it would be easy to slowly strangle the trade as will as know who has what. Confiscation WILL follow, though not immediately. They have to build up a good database first.
