Realistically speaking, the biggest thing gun addicts have to graon about at this time is that there is a very real probablitiy that you are going to have to register yourself and every weapon you own. You will then likley to be subjected to random checks for menatl stability and staus of your weapons.
You aren't going to like it, but you might as well to accept that right now and begin getting over it.

Letís begin with the (modest) successes of this era. In 1981, the president signed into law significant cuts in government spending and tax rates. Reaganís ďhistoricĒ turnaround
Funny how you skipped over the WORST recession and the HIGHEST unemployment that followed Reagan's tax cut... HIGHER than it ever reached under Obama- who was handed the mess from another trickle down dimbulb.

the historic "turnaround"? do you mean the S&L crisis and bank failures which distracted America from the 10.8 unemployment?

There is no such thing as an illegal weapon. There are only illegal infringements on rights. I will never ASK PERMISSION to own a firearm. Your "request denied" can be inserted in an orifice. You can even pick the orifice.

I know what you're telling me. I'm telling you that Constitutional rights are not absolute, as you would have me believe. If you doubt that to be true, then test me. Take one of your convict cousins down to Walmart and run his background check to purchase a semi-automatic rifle or a Desert Eagle and see how that pans out for everybody.

Iím telling you our rights are absolute. The exception is the abuse of that right. That doesnít mean the government can make firearms illegal for those who donít abuse the right and think it effects the ones who do.

You may want to sit down for this .....

The Federal Government can make any weapon they choose illegal for you to own, they just can't make ALL weapons illegal for you to own ... thus keeping your 2nd amendment "right" squarely in tact.

We all remember Charlton Heston's famous words ... "from my cold dead hands" ... do you remember that?

Loook at what weapon he was holding high in the air for everyone to see as he uttered those now famous words;

How does that coincide with an absoluteness of the 2nd Amendment? Are those shotguns banned or not?
And furthermore, decribe the difference in that rule and the one proposed currently by Sen Feinstein concerning assault weaponry.
Actually, I was just correcting you on your statement, which was in fact false. You can own any kind of a shotgun you want, including a fully automatic shotgun with an 8 inch barrel assuming you file the proper paperwork. As for how a short barreled shotgun or rifle coincide with Feinsteins bill, they do not. Perhaps you should follow the advice I gave you in my previous post and consult the ATF website, so you do not make such errors in the future. Feinstein wants to ban anything with a detachable magazine that has military features. The problem here is, these military weapons will be manufactured overseas, they will be "sporterized" to exclude the military features. Once they are in the country, people will be free to change them back to their original form. The ATF has a rule about how many foreign parts are on a modified gun. You replace a number of the foreign made parts in your gun with US made parts, and voila, you have a perfectly legal weapon. Another thing you may not realize.... This Bushmaster rifle that is so popular now, and has been involved in many of the shootings, well, it became popular after the original assault weapons ban was enacted, because it was not included in that ban. We all know there will not be an outright ban on these weapons. The ones in the country now will be grandfathered in. The market is flooded with them right now, so a ban on new imports won't amount to much.

You may want to hold on to your panties. The attempt to ban any weapon they choose will sparl a civil war. There is no way you tell a rational person that banning any type of firearm is not an infringement on our rights.

When the government picks and chooses the laws they enforce, and those who they enforce them on, it spurs contempt for the law. People will then feel free to pick and choose the laws they follow.

The current administration is pushing people toward anarchy.

There's already a ban on foreign made assault rifles entering this country, per GHW Bush.

As I said in my statement which you failed to read, they are imported under the term "sporterized" and are easily modified back to their original form and are completely legal. So, in a nutshell, you do not know what you are talking about, or you have the retentive power of a sieve. Would you like your crow before or after I post a list of websites currently LEGALLY selling detachable magazine semi automatic shotguns manufactured in Russia? They move the trigger assembly back, and remove the pistol grip. New owner buys the legal shotgun, removed 2 pins, relocated the trigger assembly, installs pistol grip, and changes a few more parts to American made, and then has a semi auto assault shotgun. The same thing can be done with the .308 caliber, and 7.62x39 models as well as a few others I do not remember. This is the problem with people crying for gun control. Most of the people calling for all these strict measures haven't bothered to read up on anything. They are as ignorant as you.
