    I'm reading the part for Virginia:
    and apart from the striker-12, I'm unaware of ANY restrictions in this state. (At least in regards to semi-automatic guns. Hell, the code section listed is about transportation by felons, and if you go through the code, there's nothing until you hit the section about the striker-12)

    I mean, for christs sake. They make it sound like VA is up there with massachusetts, california & maryland. Groups like this piss the shit out of me.

    Hell, we got a C- from the brady center. I'm hoping one day we get an F. But even the brady bunch says we don't regulate assault weapons.

    My face after reading that pdf?

    :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    (yeah, it's a rambling post. Groups like this get my blood all angried up.)

    That looks more like a school research paper than anything.

    I think it's about time to come up with something even bigger than the .50 BMG just to fuck with the anti-gunners

    It sounds to me like the paper was written before the sunset of the law so hopefully it's been forgotten. Fuck every one of them and their spin.

    I know that the military isn't allowed to shoot at people with anything bigger than a .50.

    Except for certain exceptions, like shotguns. And doesn't include blackpowder, I thought, so long as it's a smoothbore. :dunno: but I could be wrong.

    I was pretty sure black powder was ok with all the muzzle loaders and such, and forgot about those shotgun sabot slugs (arent they right about .50 anyway?) I was wondering specifically about centerfire rounds.

    The VPC has a whole list going: http://www.vpc.org/snipercrime.htm

    Funny how there are maybe only 3 times in that list when the weapon was actually used, and none of those times involved terrorism, gangs, or drug trafficking IIRC.

    I don't know about you gents, but I'm buying everything I want now. Chances are if the Dems win in November the post-AWB party is going to be over. After they raise taxes and vote to cut and run in Iraq I'm sure a new AWB will be on the docket, and this one won't have a sunset provision.

    I'm thinking this too, but what if they don't grandfather anything this time? Scary stuff.

    Its good to prepare for the worst, but realistically gun control isn't popular enough for the democrats right now when they're trying to win people over. Gun sales are high, people are thinking about katrina, concealed carry is at an all time high, terrorist worries make people buy guns (although I don't understand that one). The US as a whole isn't too friendly to gun control right now. My prediction is there is there is like 0% chance of a new federal AWB until we get our new democratic president (please don't think I'm saying thats thanks to bush either). A really tragic slaughter with scary weapons might be able to change that, but its gonna be a really tough sell that I don't think most democrats want to be associated with right now.

    As Gimik points out too, make no mistake, the anti's say the grandfather clause is one reason the AWB did nothing so clearly the next one won't be able to have one.

    it's also the reason I don't think I'll be getting into any FA stuff ever. Just too much money in it that can turn into nothing in an instant.

    theres no chance in hell that there would be anything without a grandfather clause. I would like to think this is true, and if not that people would use their rights to stop this bs.

    two ways to fight a future AWB is to join the NRA and if something ever comes onto the table threatening to take all our firearms away, persistently write to your state senator and congressman and get all your friends to do the same. There is power in numbers. If nobody shows "the man" that weve got numbers on our side theyll take your guns and your little sister away.
