Ammunition is getting scarce...This morning I lucked out and was able to buy several cases of ammo. On the way home I stopped at a gas station where a gorgeous lady was filling up her tank.She looked at the ammo in my car and said in a very sexy voice "Im a big believer in Bartering, would you be interested in trading sex for ammo?"...I thought a few seconds and asked..."What kind of ammo you got"...

I don't imagine legislation to limit the number of sales to 1 per person/year ever passing. Talking about that seems about as useful as asking what if we woke up and the world was made of chocolate. questions never hurt nonetheless.

seems like the punishment isn't a huge deterrent for straw buyers... 2.5 yrs or so max 10. There has to be a way so person to person sales can exist, while at the same time being able to check the status of buyer and seller.

Apogee,, really? I brought a question forward about those and the future- Norton chose not to answer as usual..

I ask that question due to the fact that congress rejected the assualt weapons ban BECAUSE it would stiffle the small victories they CAN get away with now.. Sound familiar? Another year, another tragedy and wallah! Another set of ever increasingly restrictive laws. The elephant being eaten a fork at a time hardly notices the tiny bites until those tiny bites accumulate and by then its too late.

She knew it. It's the art of negotiation. I'll give up a long-shot, in return for something else. And your senator Reid is in control. Sucks for ya doesn't it.

yyyep. Just the attrition alone, and certain precendences set.

The attritions?>> The fact that the panic to aquire those guns and those magazines that will be out there forever have increased the weaponry already out there, the increased CCW holders of both political partys and many are first time gun owners, and the illogical attempts by certain democrats to further thier far left agendas has brought them to light, and the silent gun owners finally woke up and got pro-active and that surge is building by the day...The presedence set is that America will not be terrorized by foreign or domestic enemies.

Instead, why not have the feds just expand on the brady check info to include the model and serial number of the gun being purchased? that would take making a new form to include two more boxes on it for thier computer program...TOO SIMPLE?

That seems like a good idea to me. I trust you will write your congressperson expressing your support for including such information in background checks.

How about a limit to how many guns a person can buy each year? How many do you buy a year? How many new guns a year do you think is reasonable for your typical gun enthusiasts?



The elephant being eaten a fork at a time hardly notices the tiny bites until those tiny bites accumulate and by then its too late.

I want to understand this because I've always wondered what elephant (and dolphin) tastes like. The elephant represents YOUR rights as a gun owner. The little bites with a fork is the legislation slowly taking them away. And the elephant is too dense to realize the first time it gets stuck with a fork? You sure it isn't that the elephant is so paranoid that it freaks out at the sight of a fork and spreads his irrational fear like a virus through the rest of the elephant population until they are all too forking stupid to realize the fork is used to keep them out of their own sh#t?

It is no more up to the fed govt to tell someone how many anythings they can buy than it is for me to tell you what you may or may not buy. Unless its times of world wars. They certainly dont have the right to tell anyone how many ropes they can buy a year, nor does it prohibit how many houses one can buy a year. They dont prohibit how much booze may be purchased by any one either. Which is more responsible for more mayhem than any friggin gun.

They limit how much of certain drugs you can buy, they limit the number of savings bonds you can buy, they limit the number of withdraws you can have from your savings or money market accounts...

They dont prohibit how much booze may be purchased by any one either.

they limit how much booze a legal adult can buy before they are 21, they require tags on all kegs, ... I'm sure there are more...



And all for good reason. And none of them result in anything more than a minor inconvenience... just like stricter legislation for gun purchases.

Some work for Hillary and then some for Julian Castro (currently mayor of San Antonio) eight years later. It will be down to shotguns or paintball....your pick.
