This settles it, I'm buying my 2nd AR15 soon.

I have a feeling that the firearms industry won't be seeking any stimulus money.

******* Obama; he's really disapointing me.

If you don't mind me asking, Maporsche - what kind of shooting do you use your AR15 for?

@snood,
Entirely target shooting right now. I'm trying to get more accurate from 100yrds out. It's very challenging.

@roger,
No, I'm not surprised. I'm disapointed.

I think Cyclops, George, and others must sure be surprised though. When I brought up these concerns before I voted for Obama I was pretty much called a idiot because there was no way Obama would do this, or take this political risk.

Well, I hate to say I told you (them) so.

@maporsche,
Your headline is potentially misleading.

Just pointing out what is actually happening.

@dlowan,
The previous ban expired. Clinton enacted this ban during his presidency.

To re-institute the ban would be the same as creating a new one.

It's not misleading at all.

@maporsche,
Extending something and creating something are two entirely different things.

Load up boys. While you're at it, get that militia together. You have a lot of pushups to do before you match up against the U.S. Army.

I am surprised, as I didn't think he was going to do this. And I still don't think that it will come to fruition.

But unlike you I would be happy to see the ban pass. Why? Because people don't need ******* assault rifles, that's why. I support it the same way I support a grenade ban or a bazooka ban. It has no real application in modern life and can lead to considerable trouble.

@Intrepid,
You aren't extending something if that something had expired.

You can't extend something that has ceased to exist.

Someone please tell me what an AR15 can do that a standard hunting rifle can't? You can use a handgun at home and a rifle for hunting. Why do you need something that will pierce armor?

@NickFun,
Well there are thousands of reason NickFun...one of them is that body armor is legal, and thus it can be used by people meaning to harm me or my family.
