Out here where I live, which is a huge hunting state, there is no way people here would just hand over their guns. No way any day.

Now they can try..but will find that people here look out for their neighbor, and would have a hard time getting through the first line of defense before even reaching the intended target.

O-BAHH-ma had better re-think about alot of things becasue I know my state is not the only one that will whip out a calibur of whoop-ass on any attempt to take away our guns.

Here in the States, we have more reason now to own guns than we did 200 years ago. You see, we have many, many more savages today than ever before.

And when confronted by the violent in my past, once I blew a few holes in them, I truly did find peace. Those dead never gave me another minute's problem.

When you find yourself in a hatchet fight, you never want to be the only one without a hatchet.

Everyone calm down! Our savior Obama has spoken and has told us that there is absolutely no need to stock up on weapons and ammo. He said we have nothing to worry about so we should all believe him and be good little sheeples.

This guy just becomes more ridiculous by the second. As another poster said on page one, it is quite a sight to see just how worried people are up here in Alaska. Gun shops and chain stores alike are cleaned out of anything semi-auto and the ammo that goes along with them. Everyone that I have talked to is really worried about not being able to put food on the table if even some of these "common-sense" gun laws are enacted.

Love and peace are great things, but I can guarantee that I would have a tough time hunting moose with rainbows and sunshine.

most people here in texas own obscene ammounts of guns, as collectors or as sportsmen, myself incluced, and like them i do not plan to to let my guns go with out a fight. stocking up on ammo sounds like a good idea. i also heard that the goverment is planning to start serial numbering ammo. has anyone else heard this ?

Buy guns b4 u cannot?????

What kind of message does that give me?
it tells me that you are scared or confused.

It should give you the message that our rights are about to be infringed upon by 'The One'. It shouldn't give you the message that I am either scared nor confused, just vigilant. That is all, vigilant. When a man who voted multiple times in the State Senate of Illinois to increase taxes on gun and ammo purchases, voted to uphold the City of Chicago's handgun ban, and has stated that he thinks semi-automatic weapons only belong on foreign battlefields rather than allowing us to decide for ourselves, we must be vigilant.

Today, Obama stated that we need not go out and stock up on guns and ammo.
Who are you going to listen to, the guy who says don't worry about it, or the men who said it is your responsibily to protect you and those whom you love?

‘‘The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able may have a gun.’’

— Patrick Henry

‘‘The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.’’

— James Madison, Federalist, No. 46.

And if he said you don't need to buy toothpaste, you'd go out and buy a ton of it?

If you really didn't need to buy guns and ammon what would you expect him to say?

Sheesh. Still, someone is making a pile of money in these recessionary times.

Its a hoax. Or rather, one of the innumerable NGOs has proposed legislation for "fingerprinted" ammunition. Its nothing more than that, an obscure proposal by an obscure private group.

Anyway, I´d like to ask the moderators not to shovel these "Obama-will-bring-Ragnarök" posts full of the periodical American-style angst hysteria into our nice and cozy weaponry board.

How about building a TIE fighter, TIE bomber, TIE interceptor, X-wing, Y-wing, and A-wing? Would it be physically possible to build these kinds of spacecraft (without the hyperdrives)?

I sat in on hearings in CT last Summer about ammunition serialization. It was a cool breeze away from passing in that state. The same hearing included microstamping. It's a miracle CT didnt pass it. CA did pass the microstamping.

It may seem like a ridiculous hoax to anyone who knows anything or has a shred of common sense but to circus legislators in slave states like CA, CT, MA, NY, NJ these absurd measures are viable ways to implement de-facto bans. Dont dismiss them based on their absurdity. Fight them based on the knowledge that those who would pass them are absolute imbeciles.

We had a gunshow here last weekend, and I've never, ever, seen such crowds. The crowd was three times what it had ever been before.

By the end of the show, most AR-15 variations were gone. Ammunition was pretty much gone by mid-morning of the first day. Only a couple of the higher prices custom ammo could be found for the .223, .308, and 7.62/39.

Bulk ammo is not yet impossible to find, but there's a waiting list of about three months. Reloading components, especially brass for those same calibers is extremely difficult to buy in bulk.

I'm not one to stack away tens of thousands of rounds for each weapon, because I know A) how heavy it is and B) since I reload, I can get several reloads out of the same brass.

The thing is, a quality weapon in popular calibers is an investment of sorts. Never lost money on a quality firearm.

Ammo in times of need, would be an excellent trade item. A gun is just a club if you don't have ammo.

Many people are paniced into buying more guns than they could ever justify and are thus speculating. And while it seems that speculating on future price increases due to ltd supply (ban cuts off) and increase in demand...that may not necessarily be the case. All bubbles eventually pop and most do so when it seems most bullish (ie, at the top). IF the anti gun crowd does succeed in getting their new laws thru w a majority of both houses of congress then here is what can happen. Let's say you have a half dozen various guns that are on the banned list and now you want to sell them at a profit. They could pass the law saying that you are "grandfathered" and thus can keep it BUT you cant transfer it unless you register it and pay a transfer tax (like they do w title ii guns). And then if you sell a weapon "illegally" (ie, black market) then you would be subjected to some serious fines and penalties (what if they tack on a ten year fine and a $100K penalty!). They might not even let you register them at might have to turn them in for $50 at the PD and take a big loss. Some big decisions will have to be made (is it worth dying for, is it worth 10 yrs or $100K) and if they do allow a free period to sell the guns then the market might become flooded with them. Just the opposite of what many expect (look what happened to gold and silver after the bailouts....instead of skyrocketing they imploded). Expect the unexpected.

Buy'em up that's what I say.

Obama is saying not to go stock up on guns and ammo because he knows that is X amount more that are going to be pointed at the guys coming to take them.

They can have the guns ammo first. And if Obama said not to stock up on toothpaste I'm doing the opposite, I don't trust the government and if your smart you shouldn't either.

Now I have to figure out to either buy a rifle or shotgun. In fact I start a thread as to not derail this one.

(someone might have already Posted something like this) (Im talking about in the USA)
OBAMA CANT TAKE UR GUNS. But, he can make them Hard as hell to get.
Now class, if you will look on the wall to ur left, here is a Picture of the Constitution of the United States of America. The Second Ammendment says simply:

Right to Bear Arms

I dont trust Obama Either, but u have to do a little research before u spend ur savings on something u will have access to after he is in office

God damn I love this whole “they can’t take my guns, it’s my freedom, I’ll kill them first!” mentality. Truly American

I have plenty of fire arms, and I buy a new box of bullets for one of them every time I'm out shopping, so as I don't have to worry about running out for a long time. I've taken courses in hand gun shooting &defense, and have a concealed carry permit, as well as hunting license, I'm a member of the NRA as well, I'm doing all I can.

I have noticed that it is getting harder and harder to find ammo for certain calibers. I reload and even reloading components are getting harder to come by.

You can call it paranoid - but I'm sure everyone remembers the AW ban in Clinton's era that was strongly hosted by Joe Biden. It wasn't about crime (had no effect on it) it was about giving all the left wingers that warm and fuzzy safe feeling. That ban went so far as to decide you couldn't put a folding stock on a .22 caliber plinker. Just stupid.

"I know most of you will say "Guns protect me" and "It is my right to carry weapons" BUT

That right was upheld 200 yrs ago and is no longer needed as that constitutional right anymore.

Provide peaceful solutions to your probelms and fears and you WILL find that a peaceful outcome will present itself to you."

If you were a student of history you would see peace has had
a bumpy ride.

I suggest you consider the fact the number of republics or democracies
that have fallen in the past.

Rome draws a great parallel to our own, bread and circuses.

All countries have seen major shifts and most through violence.

Thomas Jefferson spoke of this, and he was right.

Disarming the public was one of hitler's goals as a socialist leftist.

While I wish we could have a world of peace, I just doubt it will be
any time soon based on the history of the human race.

I stand by the words of the founding fathers, not somoene who has
the all seeing eye as their avatar.

Let me clue you into what is coming:

Ohio unorganized miltia warns US senate of 2nd civil war

I really do not have the words to express how serious this is, and
the fact that these ppl have the balls to go sit in the senate and
tell them matter of factly what is coming.

"The only thing standing between an outbreak of violence is time"

If you do not take this seriously after these ppl travelled to DC on
their dime to give the message on C-span then you are blind.

It is time to be worried.
