Define exactly how the NFA has been working? It made a class of firearms covered under the 2A illegal to own without registration and taxation. It is the exact plan that the pustule and his orcs are going to use to take everything else from us. You say you don't like it but you don't sound convincing.

I will not register anything.

I will not comply with any further restrictions.

I will not tell someone I sold them.

I freely admit I have firearms that the pustule wants to ban.

I will not hand anything over.

BTW, a ban on all semi-auto rifles and handguns that can accept a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds is a ban on ALL rifles and handguns that use detachable magazines.

I explained how grandfathering can work and has sometimes worked in the past. Like it or not, it's true.
You asked how the "keep them if they are registered" thing works out, and I told you. Like it or not, it's true.

Of course it's easy to spot propaganda from the opposing side; we're predisposed to look for it. We're not as likely to see propaganda from our side as being what it is, which is an attempt to manipulate us and others. It's easy to believe that everyone on our side is honest, but the plain truth is that some folks on both sides use propaganda and distortion of truth to demonize the other side. The gun control advocates use fear of children dying to scare folks into supporting them. Some organizations on our side use fear of tyranny to whip us up. Some folks on our side tell us that anyone who proposes any gun control measure is actually concealing their true desire to confiscate all our guns so they can institute a totalitarian dictatorship and send us to concentration camps. I have no doubt some folks on the other side would like to get rid of all guns, but they are an unrealistic, politically isolated fringe. Just like there are different views on our side of the issue, there are different views on their side. It helps to look for manipulative, emotion-laden words in what both sides are saying; they use those to stir up easily manipulated emotions. Some folks on both sides are sincere and believe what they are advocating is good policy, and I'm sure there are lying, manipulative folks with their own selfish agendas on both sides, as well.

Oldtexan, I have nothing to gain financially by being alarmed, or by communicating my alarm at what I see happening......other than that of protecting the financial investment I have made in having purchased certain firearms which may or may not be banned down the road. Mine are not for sale, so I have nothing to gain by the current speculative pricing on guns and ammo. The only thing I have to gain by being alarmed and communicating it is the preservation of my right to buy whatever the heck I want to, when I want to, at a price made reasonable by the economies of scale.

I resent the HADES out of elected officials who seek to turn me into an instant felon for possessing something which is totally legal today. I dislike that people price gouge in response to the panic, but as an ardent capitalist, I totally understand it. They're not doing anything different from what happens on the stock market every day. It's Econ 101. You threaten the supply of something, whether it is oil & gas, or guns and ammo, and it will drive the price up. When there is a big freeze in citrus producing regions, the price of oranges as a commodity goes way up......but is an organic fluctuation in the market, not one that has been engineered for the purpose of squeezing (pun intended) the public's wallets. In the case of guns, the fault doesn't really lie with the speculators—they're just trying to maximize their profit on a commodity that is threatening to become irreplaceable. The major fault lies with those who create the artificial situation which leads to the speculative pricing. I call it "artificial" because it is not economically organic. It is strictly man made, and it is not done for speculative reasons, it is done to crush a liberty. When OPEC raised prices in the 1970s, it wasn't because some stuffed-shirt politician on a power jag was threatening to make gasoline illegal at the pump. But what that quisling Feinstein is proposing has nothing to do with the ability to produce a steady supply of firearms to the market, and EVERYTHING to do with illegalizing the retail purchase of specific types of firearms........creating a whole new class of felons in the process.

The rules of this forum do not permit me to use the kind of language best describing the degree and depth of Diane Feinstein's evil depravity, or what I think of it. I've been a law-abiding gun owner ever since I got my first gun. I have never harmed anyone with one of my guns. I have never done a straw purchase, or made a firearm available to anyone outside of my direct supervision, or for an illegal purpose.

So, I get what you're saying when you advise people to be calm and to wait and see what is coming down the pike before getting our unmentionables in a twist, but my response to that is this: I want to make SO much noise about this, and I want others to make SO much noise, that a female dog like Feinstein will think twice about actually submitting her bill for fear of having everything else she sponsors getting eviscerated in the Senate. Her state will continue to elect her no matter what, as long as she keeps running, because......well, because its California. But maybe when everything she does is ineffective and she stops getting pork for California because the rest of the right thinking Senate will simply no longer "do business" with her, then maybe the commies in California will get tired of reelecting an impotent senator, and they'll replace her. There is literally NO difference between the degree of evil of what she is doing, and the evil of making pornography a required elementary school subject, or garroting everyone over the age of 65 to reduce Social Security outlays. If she were proposing a bill to require elementary schools to expose children to pornography, or to strangle everyone over 65, I trust that you would not be advising people to pipe down and wait to see what happens.......because either of those two possibilities would be so outlandish and outrageous that you would either have to laugh it off as preposterous, or start pounding the table with your shoe. There would be no real in-between. And if Feinstein had actually prepared a bill to require elementary school porn, or garroting seniors, and then she had actually posted the highlights of that bill on her senate website, you would not have the luxury of laughing it off as preposterous.

Well, I can't laugh off the notion of a Feinstein AWB, because she has actually posted the details of it on her senate website, and has repeatedly stated her intention to file it. It is as evil as the two other examples of porn and seniorcide, and the only fitting response is to pound the table with one's shoe. I'm not going to pretend like the threat isn't real, or that there is no possibility of at least part of it getting signed into law. I have too much invested, as a gun owner, and as a patriotic American invested in the Constitution not be extremely agitated about it. It's not about fear. It's about speaking out against tremendous evil, because all that is necessary for that evil to prosper is for people like you and me to do nothing.

Exactly. Even if there wasn't a single 30 round magazine in the entire U.S., any AR15 will accept one, whether or not it was purchased with one. Even if there isn't a single 15 round magazine in existence in the U.S., all Glock 19s will accept one. By her own definition, a Glock 19 would be as illegal as any AR15—including all the Glock 19s sold in California with 10 round magazines only...........because they can accept a 15 round magazine.

Now do people see why I hate that treasonous witch?

I'll repeat what I said in another thread yesterday:

"Is the bill intentionally being written with that language so that lawmakers who vote, but barely read the bill, will believe it's just a high capacity magazine ban? And later, after becomes law, those who wrote it can say, "oh no, it means exactly what it says" meaning all pistols with a detachable magazine are effectively banned. Those who were duped, or were either too lazy to read it and understand its meaning, or just plain ignorant of firearms, or ill informed by their staff, would be helpless to repeal it. Just wondering" :confused5

Wrong. They have to be registered. If you don't register then you'll be a criminal.

Actually, that is the epitome of grandfathering. If you can prove you had them before the ban, by registering them during the amnesty period, you will be allowed to keep them.


Let us all know how that "keep them if they are registered" thing works out for you.

It's been working for almost 80 years as far as I can tell. Look, I don't like it, but the reality is if the NFA is Constitutional then adding semiautomatics to the list of NFA firearms doesn't change that. Say what you want but that's reality.


That depends on how you define working. Remember that the original tax was the same $200 it is now, which put them out of reach for most people when the law passed.

And then all it took was one minor little change as part of a compromise to ban them from the market. In 1986, they just closed the registry and no new full auto weapons could be put on the list or bought. The price of the existing ones went up by about 1000% (from an average of $2000 to more than $20,000) and is still climbing. Have you tried to buy one lately?

When my son and I went to the "Silencers are Legal" event at Elm Fork Shooting Range earlier this year, I talked to a guy at one booth who was offering an M16 auto-sear for $17,000...........no trigger, no hammer, no bolt, no other internal parts, no receiver upper or lower, or anything. Just the auto-sear. $17,000. Said he paid $13,500 for it.

Cling, obviously my reality and yours are different. Welcome to the forum and I wish you well.

Just so you know my reality, any gun law is infringement. I understand the second amendment as read literally. There are no common sense gun laws or reasonable restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms. None.

The grandfathering and taxing is not and never will be acceptable.

Senator Dianne Feinstein,
I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government's right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma'am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.

Respectfully Submitted,

Oh, and btw, it is impossible to prove that you bought a magazine before the ban, and this proposed Bill reverses the presumption of innocence....so if you're caught with a mag of greater than 10 rounds capacity, and the Feds want to prosecute, you're going to prison. You could have a receipt listing 10 mags of that type purchased over the internet before the ban, but it doesn't PROVE you bought the particular mag you have in your possession before the ban --you could have sold all those you bought previously in anticipation of the ban and then bought the one you're caught with after the ban. So, as proposed, the ban is effectively a confiscation of all mags of greater than 10 round capacity.

"ALLOWED TO KEEP?!?!?!?! Jesus wept. Whatever happened to THESE words:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

......and......
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

If this passes, I become an active enemy of my government, and an active enemy of anybody who votes for or supports or accepts this abomination. I will NOT submit. I will NOT agree to obtain permission to KEEP my legally purchased property. I will NOT surrender my legally purchased property. Anybody who thinks that these things are OK becomes the enemy of my Constitution and my country. End of story.
