    There are a few posters here who insist that today's democratic party is different, that they've learned from the mistakes of years past and will let the gun control issue lie dormant. They are of course wrong.

    Keep in mind that a well regulated militia can easily become a band of terrorists.

    I feel bad for anyone who thought the Democrats changed, because they are very wrong.

    For those that were around, what were the limitations on building AR's during the last AWB?

    If I buy 3 lowers and wait to build, am I limited (assuming the old AWB is repassed only) to the "two or more is an assault weapon" language or can you skirt around it?

    Under the old language anything that was not an assault weapon before the ban could not be turned into an assault weapon after the ban. So a closet full of ar receivers that had never been built into an evil rifle before the ban couldn't be assembled into something with evil baby killing features after. The problem is of course proving that you didn't have evil baby killing features attached to the rifle at some point prior to the ban.

    But its worrying about nothing anyway ;)

    and meh, Bush said he'd sign the AWB if it was on his desk and we have had a democratic congress for 2 years now - i am not that worried.

    To be fair, though, I must add... so has the Republican party. They've both gotten worse.

    The Republican party has deviated so much from it's core beliefs that it's fucking disgusting, it's a shell of it's former self.

    I fucking hate both of them, but at least with Obama there's at least some hope for our economy, and IMO McCain has a lot of shit on his platform I don't agree with (i.e. abortion, etc.)

    Ron Paul > Bob Barr > Dog shit > Obama > McCain

    Barr gets my vote, I wish RP could've made it, he was the only libertarian that stood a chance. :hs:
