Will High Capacity Mags & Assault Rifles Be Banned? What Do You Think?

So lots of talk on an AR ban and high capacity magazine bans. I think, if anything, the latter has a far higher probability of going through...

But if you had to bet, where you would land?

Everyone in the gun forum is not buying everything they can get their hands on because they believe no laws are going to get passed.

History repeats itself.

Yes, there will be some laws passed to tighten up on guns.

I wanna scream out loud in a rage every time someone or some news station or radio station (even NPR) repeatedly state that an Assault rifle was used in the Sandy shooting. Last I checked he was only carrying pistols and the rifle was in the fACKING TRUNK!!!!

/rage from non-gun nut

That's one of the things that's confused me. I thought it was originally reported he had a glock and a sig and there was a rifle in the trunk, type unspecified.

It will be a strengthened version of the 94 AWB, without a doubt. Mags and any tactical type features will be included. I'm surprised they aren't just banning based on the color of the rifle based on the asinine thought process by our elected officials.

there is no option to ban assault rocks

what exactly happens when they ban attachments? can you not buy a completed rifle with them on there? can you not be caught with them on there? how can the verify you building a rifle with attachments?

The ban in 94 said "you can't buy a rifle with these types of attachments". I don't know about transfers (me selling to you) but it said stores can't sell rifles with certain features (pistol grip, fore grip, etc). As far as building them goes, I'm not sure how you would "modify" a compliant rifle to fit the parameters of the bill but I don't exactly think you could take a hunting rifle and mod it to function like an AR... perhaps

can you not just build an ar15 from the ground up to include a suppressor, attachment rail, grip, laser, flash light, collapsable stock, etc...?

If you have a pre=ban lower receiver, I would assume you could... is this correct?

I think this is actually kind of silly, since legislation has not yet been introduced, debated, torn apart, put back together, and then voted on, passed, then introduced to the house to debate, tear apart again, put back together again, voted on, and passed.

If you have too many let me know cause I would like some as well. I ordered a few lowers (that may never arrive) so I'd like to actually have some mags to go with.
Shoot me a text cause my message box is full

Those that think the ban will happen, do you think the Republicans in congress will allow it to happen (aka, will they vote for it)?

I don't *think* an AWB will get through. But I have a feeling they might get the high-cap ban through. That being said, I don't understand what purpose it would serve or how it would be effective. There are millions of those mags currently in circulation. It would take decades to get to a point where they start to dwindle in any appreciable way and they won't be able to confiscate or stop people from deploying them in concealed carry, etc. Based on ineffectiveness alone, it should be thrown out if it ever hits the floor. Still, there might be a few pussy republicans who will vote it in to placate the uninformed morons.

I think universal background checks are a strong possibility for legislation which might pass Congress, and possibly "high capacity" magazines (also referred to as just plain "magazines" by people who aren't idiots). That being said, I'm still considering selling some of my 30rd steel mags as long as "CTD" has ridiculous prices on them (see http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/MAG-068 )

No ban.

This is just an empty threat by a desparate president who wants the republicans to increase the debt ceiling(which they will ineviatebly do anyway).

Also wouldn't this have to make it through congress?

An AWB isn't within the presidents executive powers.

*If* Harry Reid introduces the AWB in the Senate, and it passes, I highly doubt it will pass the house. I think he'll probably introduce the high-cap mag crap, which might barely pass. Fingers crossed that it doesn't though.

I'm all for the universal background checks if:

1) There is no registration

2) No other records are kept, aside from a "yes" or "no" answer to whether one can buy

3) They don't investigate both parties during the background check. Only the buyer, not the seller, so they can't try and confiscate the weapon based on a possible mistake

4) Must be free. I'll use the system, but adding to fee to it makes it a tax. And that I don't support. Right now, we can transfer stuff for free. Requiring the background check would mean that the Fed. Govt. gets a cut of it, which I'm opposed to. I'm assuming that when dealers conduct the $5 check, that that is used to cover the fee the FFL is charged, not because they want to gouge another $5 out of a customer. If it's a new gun from the dealer, fine...that's what it is now. If it's a sale between two citizens, the check should be free.
