    I can't wait until Trump makes America great again by going along with this garbage to get his wall.

    As much as I think he would throw us under the bus at this point, as I mentioned, elsewhere, I don't think the moonbats are going to let him off that cheap.

    I'd be much more concerned about that possibility if this was introduced in the house and then rammed through, etc. Of course part of it too is they try to get
    clever and act like they're playing 4D chess or something just like Trump. Gun control only seems to be important to them when they're ignoring other elephants in the room or whenever they don't have complete control of the government.

    Their best chance to renew it was under Obama when they controlled pretty much everything, and even back then, even with sandy hook, etc, it got shot down, because establishment dems, even though they dont like admitting it, know that gun control costs them serious votes in contested districts.

    I swore she was retiring this year. I guess not.

    Maybe Harvey Milk will get assassinated again and she can ram this through.

    Although I was watching an interesting Jonestown documentary. The best thing for liberalism that Harvey Milk ever did was get assassinated. He was a BIG supporter of Jim Jones. I'm betting he was taking some serious heat right before he passed away.

    (Note: I don't wish him dead. Not on pretty much anyone. Gay. Straight. Blue. Magenta. Tweed. But he wasn't the liberal "saint" they have portrayed him as. And Feinstein is a tool. What a c-word.)

    lol - my wife made a comment this past week that there’s entirely too much ammo in the house. She’s not going to be any happier after this weekend!

    It may be sooner than that. The way things are going the Dems will win the White House and get control of Congress as a result of the 2020 election.

    I just don't care if my guns make a list, they are NOT in an contest. Besides, a mimi-14 is only 1/1024 of an assault rifle ( 8-10 generations) here in Fake-a-honus land.

    I bet this will pass. Hopefully Trump will veto it. If so, I hope they don't have the votes to override his veto.

    HOWEVER: Gun owners will not comply.

    At what stage can they say "Cut the shit with this assault weapons ban nonsense. It will NOT happen, ever, so just stop embarrassing yourselves by re-filing this stupidity every year."?

    Will it take a SCOTUS decision to say ARs are in common use and cannot be banned? Will it take SCOTUS to give us suppressors? Trying to deal with 2A issues via the whims of whichever branch of congress is controlled by whichever political party, seems stupid. It's just back and forth nonsense that gets us nowhere.

    What will it take, once and for all, to just BE DONE with "gun control" so we can just stop playing defense all the damned time?

    I missed where he said he was going to do that you need to show me. Where is your hero libertarian getting 50% of the country's vote?

    I'd say it will take them suffering serious consequences for violating their oath of office but even then I don't think they have enough sense to stop because they're power mad.

    I say they must live amongst their district without walls. I'd say 365 days a year but let's be nice 300 days a year.
