Here is the list of 23 orders that were announced today, just as a reminder. It is easy to get caught up with the "What If's" and the"This means"
i read your OP a few times. i'm still searching for the clause that will allow them to boot down your door and take your guns.
In fact, ignoring the cost of some of the things being proposed, how is any of that not purely logical?
And no, I'm sorry kids, a pistol is not a military style assault weapon, it isn't, you know it isn't, and you know damn well none of these
measures have anything to do with handguns.
In fact, if you bothered to read the stuff you are so opposed to, most of it is merely expanding their ability to enforce the laws ALREADY IN
So why again do you need to fire 30 rounds ? Who exactly are you protecting your home from, zombies? Bath salt addicts? PCP heads? Because I'm
sorry, one or two rounds from an AR-15 is going to put someone down.
I think most of the things being suggested are logical, some aren't feasible, but most of it is. Extend the background check, allow that data to be
shared, allow the ATF to actually enforce the laws already in place.
Most of the things that would be under the assault weapons ban are things that you can't really justify needing to me, without some sort of
oversight. If it's merely cosmetics, then it's a non issue, buy the one that doesn't look like an assault weapon.
This much i'm not willing to budge one. No one, no one, should have the ability to purchase rounds of ammunition for anything, over the internet.
That's just insane. And, in context, would basically make most of the checks and balances moot.
If I go into my local gun store and start purchasing hundreds of rounds of ammunition, I'm convinced something will be asked. But... if I spread
that order out over a few different retailers over the internet, well, who's collecting all that data? Certainly not the ATF, they aren't
The ATF isn't even allowed to require gun dealers keep an inventory, they can only suggest it.
You know what, with the exception of the kids on psychotropic drugs, i think a large chunk of the problem would be resolved by simple enforcing the
laws already in place.
