An EO is about the only way Obama could get something like his draconian gun bans passed. And (if I'm not mistaken) an EO only lasts as long as his presidency. So in 4 years, not only will Obama be gone, but much of congress that goes along with this as well.

I don't agree at all with handling the "gun issue" through an executive order but I think you are way out in left field with your reaction to this. You're speculating what they are going to do and panicking about. There is truly nothing any of us can do against an EO, we will have to wait and see what happens.
There's no need to post like the US is falling into civil war over the wording Biden used in his presser.
One key proposal Biden is expected to put forth would force independent gun sellers to go to certified dealers like Walmart to conduct background checks on customers and process their transactions. If passed, such a law could send people who previously traded guns at shows and in their homes to Walmart stores, propelling the company's already skyrocketing gun sales even higher, experts say.

well it is just a thought after all you can not buy a full auto any more, not with out the tax stamp, but you can still apply for a full auto , just have the i's and t's dotted and crossed, pay the sum,(tax) wait to here yea or nay, and there you go, that is if you have the $$$ to buy a full auto.
Now is that against the Constitution? no it is just a tax you must pay, same as this could be on semi auto, pay tax fill out the paper work, wait, and then you to could own a semi auto.
Now what would this mean for the current owners ?
I think they would have the option of paying the tax stamp or returning for a refund to the seller.
yes i know there are other ammo's out there the mil gov uses that could be band, ie 303 30-06 but they are also used in sporting/ hunting bolt action rifles, mil also uses 357 pistol ammo or did. just thought there was no use in posting the other ammo.

Most interesting times we live in. I have been among those who has said a full on gun grab would never happen. I am starting to wonder about that now.

I'm simply trying to put things in perspective. Our problem is that we fight for the Constitution and in defense of the Constitution.
The progressives (Obama) don't.
It would be self-defeating to go against the very thing we are trying to protect.
Kinda like using The Dark Side to fight FOR The Force.
U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal said he wants legislation that would require instant background checks for the sale of gun ammunition. He is expected to take up the proposal once Congress reconvenes.

We already have INFRINGEMENT (ie the registration and payment of transfer taxes) on Full Auto Weapons and that is just for the pre-act weapons that are grandfathered. Only LE or dealers can own the "post sample" weapons./

I just want to add that it's a darn shame that all my weapons got stolen.
