I think the odds of it coming to that point are low, but it's a possibility depending on how fast/hard things happen. Hopefully it never happens, but who knows as our debt could absolutely crush our economy if something isn't done fast (if it's even possible to fix at this point).

I decided today that I'm out on the frenzy that is in full swing. I really want a semi-auto .308 or PM version, or a .308 long barrel bolt action (for sniping courses) but .308 just costs too much and I have no where within an hour I could actually use it. I think 200 yards is the longest we have local so I'm going to stick with 5.56. I've been buying extra high cap magz over the last few years so no need to join the rush. Just going to wait for the January LE over-runs to come in and save on ammo as usual. I really want to burn some $ (tax return) coming but I need to stop myself.

Well if it got that bad. All our "toys" would mean dick, and it'd totally open us up for attack by another country. It's not like it was 160 years ago when it took weeks to cross the ocean, and days to get messages.

I'm getting a 5.56, but plan on getting a bolt action Remington 700. Debating whether to go with .223, 22-250, or .308.

No point worrying about the economy, there's still a hundred million law abiding citizens that need to be demonized/criminalized to give the country a "feel good" boost.

It's not fixable.

It took 20 kids deaths to get the heat off the government for the fiscal cliff. They will ride this wave as long as they can and put a stopgap measure in so they can put it off further. At least the reps gave in on taxes, now what?

20's are now $13, Gen2 30's are $13 and the rest are $30

Glad I ordered my 20's a few days ago. Those little buggers are already expensive let alone all this stuff going on.

The events of Friday reminded me of this movie from the early 90's. "Toy Soldiers"... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103112/ I know it's just a movie, but it kind of shows how easily it can happen. The reality of it is even more apparent now, and regardless if the US bans or stops producing guns. That doesn't mean other countries will, and not come here with them. I didn't want to post this any where else, and start up a bunch of sh!t.

WOW!!!!

Fellas I got a bad feeling about this. I think a ban of some sort will be passed in the next 6 months if not sooner. Most of you know that im a LEO and this ban scares the $hit out of me. The sad thing is that it will not do a damn thing to curb violence. I see it everyday being a beat cop with 13 1/2 years on the street. It seems lately that I have been watching the news and shaking my head and thinking..."These idiots just dont get it".

Probably one of those situations where it has to get worse to get better.

I believe though that if they try and ban everything there will be a second coming with a revolt. No doomsday scenario just the simple fact the intelligent people and those who really believe in unrestricted freedoms will gather once again to set table straight.

I'm ready. Confiscation will make me a criminal and I will take appropriate action in that case. I feel sorry for the guys who have to go door to door. They better have replacements.
