If they feel enough heat they will eventually see a tiny glimmer of light.

They are afraid. Keep buying. Keep stockpiling. Keep shaking your fist in the face of the Tyrants and screaming MOLON LABE ! This is what they fear.

STICK TO YOUR GUNS

What I'm hearing from the "inside", is that the NRA and the ISRA spear-headed this one.

I have no doubt the Anti-'s will be suicidal enough to try again.

They are communists. They didn’t abandon their goal they are just going to find a different method. Locked, loaded, and vocal should be our method.

This is how I figure the federal gun-grab is going to work, too. Lots of bluster from a handful of loud statists, followed by a lot of quiet no-votes from Southern Democrats.

Even in a liberal corruptocracy like Illinois, pressing ahead with that piece of legislation would be tantamount to political suicide for some. Glad to see someone focused their beady, little red eyes on the light.

Maybe they are getting the message -

I’ve posted it before, and someone said they were putting it in a more public location where libs could read it...

Libs, people aren’t buying all this hardware and ammo with the anticipation of turning it over politely when you come to take it.

More likely (I hope!) the Rats in congress were watching this as a guide to how hard they should push Sweinstein's bill.

We'll know if they back off... but I believe I'll go to Walmart for more 30-06 and .45 (yes, .223 and .308 are gone, but .45 and 9mm is still available locally.)

I was working up the courage to plunk down 1200 for a Stag Arms Model 8 when the whip came down.

They are back ordered for over a year and are not taking any more orders.

Ah well.......still got my other long guns.

Absolutely. You see, only a FOOL would continue to press this issue after seeing the gun / ammo / magazine sales figures last month. It’s physical suicide to continue efforts to take away the second amendment.

Suicide.

They aren’t fools though. No, not at all. They are evil, calculating and heartless.

If they are going forward with their march to disarm the populace, then they TRULY DO plan to use those hollow point bullets, and they truly intend to arm everyone they can to enforce it.

At this point, any reasonable chap would back off the plan entirely. Not these cats.

Everyone is stocking up.

Here's the silver lining of the gun control threats: manufacturers here and abroad, being the greedy capitalists that they are, are going to ramp production through the roof. And we will gladly soak it all up!

The result of the left's foolish threats is going to be to absolutely PUMP guns and ammo into every nook and cranny of the US.

And that's a good thing. The more awash we are in guns and ammo, the harder it will be to take them all away.

And the more readily accessible they'll be if we ever need them to, shall we say, defeat domestic tyranny...

Anyone who didn’t see this coming is living in a paranoid dreamland.

Here’s a newsflash, many Democrats support the 2nd amendment too, even old Bill was eventually smart enough to see the truth of that.

The Democrats are over-reaching ... and it will come back to bite them, mark my words. This is just the first hint of them starting to majorly backtrack

I went online to Midway and Cabela’s and have quality .22 ammo and 10/22 BX-25 magazines on a UPS route somewhere. The orders were placed just before Christmas... All of the local’s are our of the more popular calibers...

The gummintdummies would do well to remember Admiral Yamamoto’s advise to the Japanzee High Command: “ do not try to invade the US mainland. You will face a rifle behind every bush” Since he gave that advise I, and another 100 million of my closest friends, have acquired at least 200 million more firearms. And that number, along with the older ones, add up to over more than 300 million guns in the hands of regular folks. And that number,in turn, is more small arms than is on the rest of the face of the earth including all militaries. Swinestein and her grabbers have no freekin idea how much resistance just a few thousand peedoff yanks could/would put up. Ponder, for instance, how few folks it would take to assign a four man team to each “aye” vote to make sure that voter doesn’t do any more damage?

I don't think anybody really knows how many firearms are in private hands in the US, nor how many people own these arms; kind of like after the collapse of the Soviet Union, no one has any clue how many AK-pattern rifles were made by the Eastern Bloc countries, the middle east (like the Iraqi Tabuk), China, the Norks, etc. Estimates are anywhere from 10 to 50 million rifles.

Of course, some were destroyed in any one of two dozen conflicts in Africa and Southeast Asia. The gun may be crude, but they were designed to be made and serviced in simple jungle and desert shops. Oh, and since around 1990, God knows how many were (legally) imported into the US and other Western countries. The 4473 form for long guns only mentions caliber, no make or model. Gun confiscation in the US is going to be next to impossible. Hell, they can't even keep convicted felons from getting guns, and they make up less than 1% of the population.

They got the message, alright. They probably received floods of letters from Illinois Democrats and Republicans alike against gun control. Money isn’t everything. When there are enough votes, votes do count.

What sucks is I’ve heard anecdotal reports of some of our better local gun shops, instead of putting them on the shelves, they are selling what ‘black rifles’ they get in on Gunbroker instead. I can’t blame them for going for max profit right now, but a local shop should cater to their loyal local customers first. They should just mark the things up and put them on the shelves.

Hell, at least Walmart is putting theirs out for folks to (QUICKLY)buy, without a markup. Heck, I was talking to the guy at the sporting goods counter at our local Walmart on Christmas Eve, and that morning they got in 4 Colt M4s(the good ‘LE’ models), put them on the shelf, and all were gone within 45 minutes. At least they are getting them in and not marking them up. The guy said they were ordering them daily, and have stepped it up on the quantity. I was fortunate to buy one back in November before the hammer came down. Still haven’t shot the thing yet. I could probably about double my $$$ if I wanted to sell it, but I’d MUCH rather keep it.

Never imagined Walmart doing better for the customers than the local shops. Dammed crazy times we are in right now......
