This whole issue of gun control and banning certain weapons is already at a fever pitch. And it's going to get much worse. It effects every gun owner in America, which means it effects every member of this forum. The media is doing all it can to shape public opinion against responsible gun owners. On a Sunday morning news show, one guest speaker said assault weapons were just the first step. She wants to ban "ALL" semi auto weapons, "period".
We have so many forums, but none to cover this most important topic. Can you create a separate forum under "Handgun Forum Information", for this most crucial topic and make it very prominent so everyone can be made aware of this crisis. Buried here in the Political Discussion Forum just doesn't give it much exposure. Please do something so this topic receives the broadest possible exposure to all of our members. Our 2nd Amendment rights may disappear.
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." George Washington
First off thank you for the G.W. quote but actually it is inaccurate -> http://www.guncite.com/gc2ndbog.html

I believe the above is proof that assault weapons are just the start. I believe soon after Obamas 2nd term we will start to see these changes being put through
