:lol: You really do have to love the Onion. It does stand to reason that Obama and the Dems will probably not get anything passed as for as gun control in the next 2 years. (unless the sneak it in to a unrelated bill, and Republicans accidentally vote yes on it) I mean just look at the shenanigans that passed the 1986 MG ban.

If he gets a second term and a fully Dem Congress and Senate, there is also a chance nothing will happen. Hopefully, all the emotional outcry from the tragic Tucson shooting will have calmed down, and hopefully we won't have any more nutjobs out there trying to kill innocent politicians and innocent people.

What do you mean "accidentally"? Are you suggesting that the Rs won't read the bills either?

Won't read the bills or will not stop shenanigans if they begin. I don't really trust either side to read the bills anymore.

I don't think that much matters... I was told last election that the R's would have their feet held to the fire. It's up to those that voted for them to read the bills and convince the Rs to do the right thing.

Ha, good luck with that! I'll believe it when I see it. Until then, business as usual, nothing to see here, move along.

What about the last 3 attempts from the ATF that have been aborted?
If they can't pass a law, sooner or later they will be able to pass a regulation...

We need to purge the Government of those people who do not respect the Constitution and remove them from power at least.

The Bill Ayers of this world were ready to put us in detention camp and eliminate 30 million of us. Am I the only one who see there are people INSIDE that want us dead?

Who signed the MG Ban Bill? Reagan. Enough.

It really bothers me that so many "conservatives" act like Reagan was the best thing since sliced bread.

He signed one of the most anti-2nd amendment legislation to ever exist.

Isn't he the one who signed the amnesty laws?

Didn't he chide us into living within our means as he signed budgets that turned us into a debtors state?



But back to the OP, everyone knows this is the onion right?

:goodpost:

I think Reagan is way overrated as a President. I don't understand why so many people think he was so awesome. :?

Maybe because we had just lived through Carter. On the whole Reagan was a good President. The story of the FOPA and the MG amendment was not his finest moment, but you need to understand there is plenty of blame to go around. The NRA pushed that bill hard. They didn't care about the poison pill and would have given anything to get it passed. The truth is that stamp collectors were a small minority of firearms owners at the time. $200 was serious money in 1986. Not as much as 1934 but still a lot of money. Its easy to grouse about the MG ban, but on the whole FOPA has been a good law. It could be better, but most folks don't remember that there was a question on whether or not it was even legal to take a handgun out of state before the law passed. Do you really think that if Reagan hadn't signed that bill that it wouldn't have been included in the AWB :?:

That sure has a lot to do with, but Reagan was as charismatic as Carter wasn't. People naturally followed him. Another 4 years of Carter and we probably wouldn't be here today.
