At that point illegal and legal enter the who cares field and some of us will still have our guns. The US ain't Australia. 8)

With that said obummer's speach today was nothing more than talk to make it seem like he is doing something. Without congress he won't get any restrictions thrown our way. No matter how much he uses children to play on the emotions of the liberals in this country.

I doubt we see any restrictions on the federal level for awhile.

Most red states will not fallow Executive Orders that Obama is trying to do but, even though States have the right to not engage in Executive order it may not matter. For example during the Gulf BP spill Obama passed the Gulf Moratorium which was totally out of his power and unconstitutional and one of Louisiana's finest judges abolished Obama's moratorium yet it did not matter because Obama kept ramming it back in, so now my state isn't making the revenue it needs so Bobby Jindal is having to make huge budget cuts to schools. The schools spend too much but, there are a few negative effects.

Agreed. It's the whole reason that someone like 0bama could get elected twice to begin with.

All you nay sayers better wake up and smell the coffee. It happened in NY, other states are sure to follow. Our thugs are only allowed to carry 7 rounds in there 10 round mags now. Wake up people, big brother is out to get our guns and ammo. Pretty soon I will have to go the 42nd street to get my duck ammo.

I only carry 2 rounds. One in the upper and one in the lower.

Come to think of it I think it would be a bit more sporting if bird hunters were only allowed 2 rounds at a time. :mrgreen:

Panic. In a few months, those guys who bought 5.56 for over $1 per round, are going to be regretting it.

It seems ridiculous to me that shotgun shells are flying off the shelves. There's no way that any new gun law is going to impose a restriction on shotguns or their shells!


How about laws that already say no shotguns with more than a 5 round mag. That eliminates the model 12. Cook county, the county with already the highest taxes in the nation also the county where Obama came from, proposed two cents tax on each round of ammo, but it didn't pass.

Take a chill pill and lay off the pot???? I guess you are not directly affected by these new rediculous laws yet so you are not concerned.

Here in NY I can no longer buy any reloading components or ammo except at local stores.To say my selection has been seriously limited would be beyond understated.I like to support local small shops when reasonable but they simply can't match the prices/sales of the large suppliers.

The sooner people calm down, the sooner things will get back to normal. There will be guns and ammo aplenty if people with just calm down and stop the panic buying. Luckily, I had about a 3 to 4 flat mix of 12, 20 and 28 target ammo on hand from when prices were lower and that will tide me over until things get back to normal. Everybody just chill out.

Man I cannot see how so many people(that have demonstrated in the past that they are a bit above average in wisdom) still believe that this a___ ho__ won't come after their guns or hobby. It is just baffeling.....Jack

Firearms Refresher Course

1. "Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not." ~Thomas Jefferson

2. "Those who trade liberty for security have neither." ~ John Adams

3. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.
4. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

5. Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.
6. Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.

7. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.
8. Know guns, know peace, know safety.
No guns, no peace, no safety.

9. You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.
10. Assault is a behavior, not a device.
11. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.
12. The United States Constitution (c) 1791. All Rights Reserved.
13. The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others.
14. What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you NOT understand?

15. Guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians.

16. When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.
17. The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control.

IF YOU AGREE, PASS THIS 'REFRESHER' ON TO TEN FREE CITIZENS.
"I love this country, it's the government I'm afraid of."

Do you people not pay attention to the news? Because I live in NY I can't go to the store and buy 22 ammo to go plinking with anymore without getting an NICS check done on me. And when I do finally get them I can only load 7 in my gun. This is just the beginning, this is not the time to site by the campfire and smoke a dooby unless you want ALL your fire arm freedom taken away.
