Actually, I've learned recently of how many road signs in the US are actually marked on the back with secret signals designed to communicate high-value strike targets and directions to an invading UN army, and on a recent trip into town noticed no less than FOUR new road signs along my regular route. I don't know if all of them had secret signals on the back, because it did not occur to me then to stop and check, but that sudden proliferation along with his new and unprecedented move against the Constitution makes me wonder if perhaps we are approaching some tipping point. I'm going to study it out a little more and see what else I can find; I earnestly suggest that everyone else does likewise.

ReverendJynxed: Uranus Is Huge!: CD_Ridge: What do these executive orders do about criminals that have guns?

There are already laws that address this.

Exactly, this law push is to make sure more people qualify as criminals before breaking a law, so those laws can be used against them.

The previous system was lacking because it wasn't streamlined. You had to wait for the criminals to show themselves you see. This way, we can declare them a criminal first and round them up in one swoop without having to have them lift a finger. Win-win right?

They are creating a literal criminal class and declaring anyone with a "mental illness" a criminal for existing. It's amazing how it's the people that stand up for themselves, not following like sheep that are labeled first.

We should just do away with due process while we're at it. That shiat gets in the way of the system too.

In twenty years, there will be less guns, and it will be harder to kill someone with a gun.  Get rid of the guns, and people wont kill people with guns.  Simple really.

OK, I feel better already(puts another clip in belt)

Just make sure you only put 7 rounds in that 10 round magazine, lest you be a law breaking psycho killer.

Qu'est-ce que c'est?

The well thought out NYC gun control bill doesn't call for the outright banning of previously legal 10 round magazines, but makes it illegal to load them with more than 7 rounds of ammunition.  Pretty silly when you think about it.


If you are loading up the magazine for your home protection piece, it's generally a good idea to not fill it to capacity so you don't wear out the spring by compacting it for an extended period.  Obama is just looking out for our best interests and wants us to properly care for our guns!  What a guy.

Nope. Evidently over yours.

"This is a matter of vital importance to the public safety ... While we recognize that assault-weapon legislation will not stop all assault-weapon crime, statistics prove that we can dry up the supply of these guns, making them less accessible to criminals."--Adolph Hitler.

Now, in context, it's clear Herr Hitler--wait, did I say Hitler? I meant Reagan.

Anyway, in context, it's clear Herr Reagan didn't think we could ever eliminate all assault weapons. But by "drying up" the supply, we can make them less available.

Frank N Stein: maachubo: "fire" in a crowded theater

Not that I agree or disagree with what you said, but can't someone PLEASE come up with different analogy? I'm really tired of hearing YELLING FIRE IN A MOVIE THEATER every time people discuss firearm regulations.

Again, nothing against what you said. It's just starting to be a pet peeve for me.


Look, if you are in a crowded theater with gun nuts, the last thing you want to do is yell, "FIRE!"

So you agree there's precedent and your prior comment on the issue was completely idiotic. Glad we agree.

Click Click D'oh: A police officer can seize my firearm blah blah blah


So you agree that nothing changed and your prior comment on the issue was completely idiotic. Glad we agree.

But, no, you're right it's totally an outrage that they're going to check to make sure you're allowed to have a gun before handing one to you after they seized it in the process of a criminal investigation involving you. that just makes no sense at all.

Click Click D'oh: Yeah... because police would never abuse their authority... never... ever... Right Fark?


No, no. Totally legitimate fear. A cop going to the trouble and paperwork of putting together a formal investigation because they gave you a ticket for a violation most people never even get cited for. Absolutely legitimate concern and you don't sound completely off your goddamn rocker at all.

Nothing he does will even remotely solve the problem. All it will do is be a pain in the ass for legal gun owners. nothing more. Next shooting that happens with a 10 round magazine will prompt bans on them as well. Then 5 rounds will be the maximum. Then only bolt action rifles allowed. Then only revolvers. Then ATF will have the right to come into your house to check, for safety of course. Etc....

Really doesn't sound unreasonable does it? But that is how this starts. background checks? No problem. I always get one, because I buy from a dealer. But my doctor now will quiz me on gun ownership? I don't like the vague stipulations regarding Obamacare, I wonder if my doctor will now have to investigate any evil gun ownership and report it to the IRS, or ATF, Brown Shirts, what have you.

-it's what americans do-
I fail to see how these new edicts would have stopped any of the recent shootings

are we now safer than yesterday

is this one of a chain of political moves designed to eventually remove firearms from the citizenry

As far as me "waiting" for more people to die, the implication being that I am HOPING for people to die is cute, that's so cute. I'm sure you can give us all a reason why the massacres will suddenly stop now that you need them to. You had your chance after any one of these incidents to act like "responsible" gun owners and decent citizens by seeking ANY reasonable measure. Instead you painted yourself into a corner and made yourselves to look all the world like deranged gun-fetishists. Hoisted on your own petards, retards.

How does this address the millions of guns that are on the black market/in the hands of criminals who are not allowed to own a gun?

It helps to slow the supply of guns through buyers TO the black market. After all, they start somewhere.

No it doesn't.  There are an estimated 300M guns in the US.  All a determined criminal needs to do is to simply break into someones house and take them.  Which is how a lot of guns get into the black market to begin with.  So this does nothing to address current supply.

I just don't get the huge hang up about AWs and overly large mags.  Even in the hands of a sane and well trained person, I can't think of a single legitimate need to have either of those. (and "just because" doesn't pass muster, imo)

Still, how about this instead of an AWB:

1.  Each AW and large mag has to be serialized and registered to their specific owner
2.  Said owner must complete extra training and evaluations to obtain a license to own these items.  License includes demonstrating proper use and care, as well as a background check and mental health eval.
3.  License must be renewed every year, with proficiency retests every two years
4.  Fees for #2-3 will be subsidized to lower your out of pocket cost.  Subsidy will be paid for with increased fines on those who do not get licenses, and a 0.2% tax on all ammo sales (up to a max per transaction)
5.  If either the AWs or the mags are used in the commission of a crime, the penalties are doubled.  If this occurs because the items were stolen from you, you are not liable, unless you obviously left them unsecured.
