I saw on the news that KY-Rep Ed Whitfield was down this way at a gun show today. He spoke and said that they were going to do everything possible to fight Obama's new gun regulations.<quoted text>
You have it right. But is getting very hard to get the type of gun you want. They are selling very quickly. Federal propositions may not grandfather in some guns, leading to a scenario such as this.
You purchase a gun legally, but you are a "criminal" if you possess the type of gun if you have not been "grandfathered." Perhaps there will be a buyback program, such as in New York's. But you will get nominal payment for the gun. Most programs that use the grandfather clause allow a period of time (a year?" to turn in the gun. If you do not, you are a criminal. Remember that federal law trumps state law, unless the law is unconstitutional, whereas the courts must decide this. This is as I understand it, anyway.
Those types of guns are available here but you have to jump on them because they are going fast! I missed that one by about 30 minutes-bummer!
