Here's my situation: I have a few, pathetically few .22 magazines that may become "illegal" again at some point. I will not give them up. But if I chose to fight physically, I would be killed in minutes at the most. So I choose to fight in the political arena. It is not much, but I do what I can:

Good for you! Seriously.

Not sure I’m really understanding the point you’re trying to make though.

I called my senator but her last name is Feinstein, so it is the same as throwing up a letter into the wind

I would love to fight this in the political Arena, but unfortunately I have Sen.s Mikulski, Cardin ,and Representative Steny Hoyer.

My letter may as well be lost as to write to these liberal piss-ants.

when the republican party called for a donation, I gave him a long winded rant and hung up on him. May as well have started punching and slapping the wind

At what point do we stand and fight? What’s the trigger event for you? Abrogation of the 2nd? Suspension of habeus corpus? Cancellation of an election?

“”I lost my firearms in a (insert overused unfunny cliche) accident “

I sold all of mine in a private sale to a couple of New Yorkers.

Men have been misplacing their weapons for a long time.

Q. Can anything less than a military force carry the Stamp Act into execution?

A. I do not see how a military force can be applied to that purpose.

Q. Why may it not?

A. Suppose a military force sent into America; they will find nobody in arms; what are they then to do? They cannot force a man to take stamps who chooses to do without them. They will not find a rebellion; they may indeed make one.

I was freaked out the past week of so about obamas executive orders. BUT after reading them I believe he has blinked.

He is toothless. He wants congress to deal with this.

The congress and Senate are too afraid to pass anything as they WILL LOSE THEIR JOBS.

HOO HOO today was a good day!

Buy more firearms and donate them to the Urban Outdoorsmen.

Have they banned hat pins yet?

You can pry them from my old gray head.

At this point, I would be very careful writing to any Federal official. I have a sneaking suspicion that the names and address of dissidents will be kept for future use. Me? As the tag-line says. Loading up and hunkering down. Burying firearms and ammo in the side lot.

I've already made my decision and I stand by it publicly. I'm prepared to become a criminal for the first time in my life if any of this BS gets through. Although I don't think there will be any new gun restrictions, I have already decided... I will not register anything. I will not submit to nor require a background check on private sales. If I want to sell off some of my stock of 30rd mags, I will. If I feel like giving weapons to a friend or family member, I'll do it privately.

My other answer is, well... I just ordered 2 more Garand's for my collection and another 2,000 rounds of ammo in case my neighbors need hardware some day. I paid too damn much for the ammo, but I considered myself lucky to even find it right now. I'm actually quite excited, I ordered one of the re barreled Garand's in .308... so it's like Christmas time around here with me waiting for the FedEx guy.

Peccadillos. Do what you like. Just don't call a magazine a clip.

I think I get your point.

I do understand, however, why people would want to give big thug government the finger - - there’s something satisfying about that. But the best way to address big thug government’s efforts at citizen control is to make all gun and ammo purchases privately with cash. Gun shows are good places to shop. NEVER use your real name (unless for some reason you are asked by a genuine LEO). Use your “pen name”. Make your buys and shut up. Stay off the radar.

Then you never have to “capsize your boat”.

Ya aren’t getting it, are ya?

Admitting you own firearms on a public forum such as this just puts you on a fedgov list. That means if obastard gets his way, you’ll get one of the first friendly visits. You won’t stand a chance. Of course, all active Freepers are probably already on that list, so it is a moot point. (Think that sounds nuts? Look at how the DHS has identified potential domestic terrorists.)

Ergo, it’s simply laughing in the face of tryranny.

That said, denying you own firearms does not preclude expressing your pro-2nd view to your congresscritters.
