In an article I was reading earlier today, apparently the full details won't be disclosed to the public until AFTER it's been passed (sound similar to anyone?). Here's the link if anyone else wants to read.

Think outside the box on this one a bit.

Imagine the worst did come true, and guns and ammunition could not be purchased new.

Then exactly what would happen would be that gun and ammunition manufacturing would go deep underground. There, the regulations on how they are made, what they are made of of, and how powerful they are will not exist. Really deep pockets will fund most of it, and the current state of the technology of making guns will make it just that much easier.

Super weapons will come out of this blackest market, and the people who will have the most access to them will be criminals.

No, there will be no violation of the constitution because the backfire will be much worse than what they are trying to achieve. Of course, this is IMHO, but and educated IMHO.

(CNSNews.com) – Iran has been chosen as a member of the “bureau” overseeing a month-long United Nations conference in New York aimed at finalizing a controversial global “arms trade treaty.”

The move, which came as the conference got underway last week but received virtually no attention, is the latest example of Iran taking up leadership positions at the United Nations despite its defiance of Security Council resolutions relating to its nuclear program.

Furthermore, according to an expert panel monitoring U.N. sanctions on Iran, Tehran continues to flout a Security Council ban on exporting its weaponry, with Syria the main recipient.

Iran Named to Group Overseeing U.N. Arms Treaty Conference; ‘Like Choosing Bernie Madoff to Police Fraud’

I wonder if Kofi Annan had anything to do with this ?

These people are smart and they will come to your neighborhoods ,with a list of guns they know you have , march you outside and hunt all for guns & ammo with metal detectors and dogs that can even smell gun oil . An example of this is on Youtube .Resistance will be put down brutally and televised for effect . Your neighbors might be punished with you and as an incentive to tell on you or persuade you to comply .
Ammo can be cut off the guns will die .


That is funny...Resistance can never be quelled in that way...

People can build guns...People can MAKE ammo...Not everyone is an incapable moron...

Well get making some . Your cap and ball gun will wear out those M 16s . Of course with all the resistance I see today from the people I doubt that we have the materials saved up to make ammo . I am not giving up but we are out gunned already . Until they take away the beer and cigarettes and cable and phones most of these people will not say a word and be caught flat footed .

Apparently, a man's gun accidentally discharged, killing a girl as she hugged him. He was an off-duty police officer, although I am not sure how relevant that will be. The news article is already questioning why he was carrying. I know it's a mainstream media source, so the facts are likely not complete yet, but I felt it was worth sharing as I see potential for this incident to become 'fuel for the fire' in the gun control issue.

Funny, as there have been people for a while now stating this was going to happen. 0bama is just pushing what he believes. Not surprised by that, just surprised that people that value their 2nd Amendment Right think they will not be affected.

Glocks should not have a chambered round . They need a safety . They have a very sensitive trigger and are as dangerous to the owner as to the perp..

What???
Have you ever used a Glock Pistol?
They are just as safe any other Pistol offered. Please, research the safety mechanism that Glock uses, before you talk out of your butt.

In addition, maybe read the Detroit Article.
The Pistol in question is the S&W M&P model. Not a Glock.


Go back to the Brady Camp Blogs.

The glock I shot had a very light trigger pull . The little trigger safety can be depressed easily by bending down against anything with a small enough protrusion to press through the clothing and catch the trigger . I also am cautious about my TCP , but it has a long and harder trigger pull . My others have a decock safety that is easy and safe to remove . A fellow killed himself pulling his gun out of his shoulder holster . The Springfield offers a grip safety . Not an attack on the Glock . It's a good gun but to touchy for me and I always carry one in the pipe . Careful ! If carried in a good holster not exposing the trigger it might be safe .

I too carried Glocks, 22 and 23. Never had an issue. The light trigger pull sounds like it was set for Match Style firing, and not for carry.
I have never heard of such an AD, but I guess it could happen.
But.........other manufactures, like the S&W M&P I believe has the same style of safety as the Glock.

I have since gone to HK USPs. Better gun IMO.

As for the guy that had the AD from un-holstering from his shoulder rig? Sounds like poor finger placement while drawing. That happens with most people that don't practice/drill for actual fire fights.

The Gun in the article is still the S&W M&P.

Makes sense they are pulling a "after its been passed" game:
Now it's been leaked,

It looks like another rumor or prediction about Obama has been proven not true.

So now it appears Obama and the U.S. will not sign the U.N. gun treaty were is the OP of this threat to apologize for being wrong and lying when he or she decided to write this thread.

Ooooooops you were wrong again.
