    I donno, maybe.

    But I'll tell ya this, I don't bet unless I know the answer. I was going to wait until spring to make a purchase, now it'll be an early Christmas present.

    And don't forget, any new law has to get by Ws' desk.

    I've got a total of 10 30rd AR15 mags and I'm going to order more. I just ordered 1,000rds of 5.56 ammo as well...

    I'm going to pick up another AR lower receiver at some point in the near future as well...Just in case....better safe than sorry

    True but, A veto override requires a recorded two-thirds vote of those voting in each house.

    You'd have to have a bucnh of republicans join in. I doubt it would happen. Then again they are ALL politicians.

    I wouldn't panic at the moment but I must stress the importance of being a member of the GOA or NRA to preserve our rights. The membership is cheap. Even I can afford it. $20 a year isn't much.

    I'm in the NRA, GOA, and Grassroots. Still getting some mags. And I am probably going to try to at least get my Swiss K-31 ASAP. I really hate having to think this way. WTF is the Constitution there for, anyway? People and their power trips and knowing what's best for me. *picture angry rant here*

    I don't think they will try anything until the next presidential election. If they can pretend to be more conservative for the next to years and then get a democrat in the white house. If they can do that then its all over for us and they dont have to try and get a 2/3 majority to override a veto.

    Amen to that. Ron Paul for President! I agree with you about GOA. The NRA worries me a bit at times but they actually have done quite a bit. GOA seems to be more committed though. I'd like to see more libertarians in office like Ron Paul but I don't see the sheeple allowing that to happen.

    The more I read (and hear from my company's lobbyist) about the nature of most of the Dems that got elected, I guess I'm a little more sanguine. Many of them are pro-gun, pro-life, anti-tax. The question is whether they can coalesce into a solid block of blue dogs or knuckle under to Pelosi and the wingnuts.

    OTOH, I seem to remember W saying he'd sign the Brady bill if it was sent to him.

    I still see an AR purchase in my future before these clowns are sworn in.

    Actually, I don't have a problem with "reducing gun violence in America", just the WAY the Brady Bunch intends on doing it. Minneapolis area has gotten pretty bad with shootings and stuff. Most of them are done by kids that shouldn't even be owning/possessing handguns and such. Of course, MN is a "reform State" vs a "punishment state"

    And there is the problem,10 years in L.E. taught me one thing there is NO reform without some form of punishment to help reinforce it
