    I see Dianne Feinstein is making a bid for firearms sales person of 2019.
    let the panic buying begin..... it's ok I didn't want to be able to buy ammo for matches this year anyway.

    Without a majority in the Senate not much chance this bill gets out of there. Publicity stunt.

    Call and write your senators.
    Don't be content with "we have a majority"; when we're the "Silent Majority" it doesn't mean anything.
    Let your senators know how you feel.

    Do it today.

    Edited:
    Lunch break - emails sent to my senators.

    For those keeping score, the sponsors of this travesty include:

    -- Both Massachusetts senators
    -- Both Connecticut senators
    -- Both Rhode Island senators
    -- Both New Hampshire senators
    -- Half of the Vermont senators
    -- Neither of the Maine senators (yet)

    Advantage, Maine.

    I still don't understand how, with all of the problems in the country and world, they justify having gun control at the top of the list.

    So proud of herself. I'd say what I think of her but I'd get the ban-hammer

    Because they hate US. WE elected Donald Trump which delayed their plan for total control of America. WE stand in the way of their radical agenda to "change America"(who said that) and eliminate all opposition to their radical, Socialist agenda of open borders, universal health care, total ban on firearms, guaranteed income, promotion of green energy(banning fossil fuels and auto's), destroying the Military, etc.

    Advantage somewhere South or West. Northeast is dead. Anyways this is good, I'd rather the enemies of freedom sign onto big anti freedom stuff right out in the open. Force everyone to pick a side, rather than a mushy slow march to hell. Also big gun legislation makes it tough for the D primary wannabes to try and play both sides.

    How does this affect ammo..? It really shouldn't matter to us in the PRM anyways - we already have an AWB.

    Reread the firearms banned by name. It will hit us in the people's republic too.

    "It really shouldn't matter to us in the PRM..." So, it's okay to pass another 1994 AWB Redux? That's one hell of an attitude to have! I have a feeling it wasn't sarcasm.

    remember the panic buys of 2012 when everybody hoarded everything and they drove the prices up and made it almost impossible to find common ammo? I loved paying 3x what .22lr was worth in limited quantities
    can't wait to get back to that.
    good times

    Is the plan to have the "copy or duplicate" clause added as an amendment?
