@George,
Last gun bought was a Baretta .22 double action pocket sized pistol, , maybe 15 years ago.

Note that it was only legal at the time because it was made in the USA. Too small to import, if that makes any sense.

I'd make up a number and say it'ts about a 20% chance of being illegal to sell in two years.

Gotta keep in mind, though, neither Ms. Clinton nor McCain was noticeably gun friendly.

As to the gun buying spree, doesn't seem in any way racially motivated, and this is directed to BillRM, not George. After the assault weapon in the Clinton administration, and before it took effect, there was a definate upserge in "assault rifles" and high capacity magazines.

Assuming you mean buying one brand new from a dealer (not pre-ban guns or buying from a private party). Then, yeah, I'd throw a friendly $20 bet at ya.

Assuming you bought the Bushmaster from a dealer, yeah.
$20? You're on, Coach.
See you in two years.

@maporsche,
The only bright spot is that guns had always been a good investment.

@George,
From Obama/Biden's agenda at Change.gov
http://change.gov/agenda/urbanpolicy_agenda/

The underlined portion at least proves that Obama/Biden have gun bans on the agenda. THIS is why gun sales are going up...not because Obama is black.

Quote:
Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent.



psst....the AR15 that is the subject of our bet was considered an 'assault weapon' during the Clinton years.

I'll say it again, there are functional and political definitions of what an "assault rifle" is supposed to be and the two are radically differrent. The little Henry 22WMR leveraction rifle comes very close to what I'd want for a real assault rifle and can be had all day long for around 325 USD at gunbroker or auctionarms.

A little over halfway through on our bet George; so far you are winning. Really nothing from the administration thus far.

I'll be happy to lose this bet, and will celebrate by buying another assault rifle.

Not even once since that post. Been too busy to drive several hours out of town (I'm really hating Illnois) to get to a range; that and ammo is EXPENSIVE right now.

I'll get out this spring/summer though.

@BillRM,
Get onto gunbroker.com and do a search on "fnar".

If you're going to go to the trouble of obtaining a semiauto rifle you should at least try to come up with a modern one.

Number one a bar is not semi but fully auto and it is still one of the best rifles every created and is in effect is a light machine gun.
