    If they reinstate the assault weapons ban, what will happen to the gun you just purchased? Can they take them? Can you use them for hunting? Can you still open carry?

    I second DeanF's reply. But real quick the answer is no, yes, and yes.

    It sort of depends.

    If the just ban the salwes of the weapon that's one thing.

    If they ban the possession of them......well........ FIGHTS ON!

    By that time my weapons had already been "sold", or if that didn't work I'm sure they'd hear lots of shots going off from my area... as I'm sure lots of other people would do if they had their weapons confiscated.

    The sad thing is, I think (I hope I'm wrong) that a lot of people would give their guns up because they'd want to be law abiding citizens. But I know damn certain that there will be more than enough of us that won't, so I'm not too worried.

    There are property rights involved (ya like we have any left).

    So they can prohibit the future sale (Reagan did this with NFA in '86 :X) but what you already have you get to keep (this isone reason for all the booming sales in black rifles), they can develop a registration scheme and a registration window (like in CA for AR-15s/AKs) and then prohibit sales and possession afterwards (exemption for those registered but the gun "dies" with you as it can't be passed on to the next generation in CA).

    But this won't happen for a number of reasons one being the Dem. leadership just got Congress and the Pres. and they want to keep it for a while (ghosts of the last bans backlash still haunt them).

    You ask: What will happen to the banned firearms that you own?



    Do you mean the ones thatI lost in that tragic boating accident?

    I don't know where I've heard it before or who said it first... or even if it's quoted properly... but this is one of my favorite lines:

    No, not the ones you lost in the lake, the other ones. The ones that you sold to someone in a private sale.

    I hear theremight bea PVC tube buried somewhere in West Virginia up in the hills that may or may not have some survival gear and a firearm or two inside it.

    I was reading in the obituary column and I see that a friend recently passed away. I had recently sold him 2 hand guns and a couple of AR. kept receipts for them also.

    I went to the family to see if i could buy them back but they were sold in an estate sale and they have no record of who bought them

    You do a "Kennedy" and go criminal gun runner, till you are once again made
    a law abiding though rich citizen again.

    Your only problem will be if they make them unconstitutional, but then there
    is always Kalifornia who can't read the const. anyways.

    Your safest bet is to marry the gun, then it gets citizenship, well one anyways....:shock:
    Guess you can try a Peterson, and go through them every couple of years.
    I swear I found the AK without the mag in the tub, the AR just ran off, and
    I'm engaged to the SKS now though.

    But unless you bought it with the latest illegal record checks, you are safe as
    long as you never LIE to the police about it. Just ask for the warrent, and
    tresspass them from the property. If you made the mistake of letting them
    keep the illegal records, then get a soggy boat. Just heard that a fish ate
    someones cell phone, so that might be a good one, let them catch every fish
    to prove you wrong. But to not be a Martha Stewart I would suggest
    dropping a wooden stick into a body of water, preferably near a school zone
    where a stick is a gun, and then you don't need to lie.

    The funny thing is if they do institute a ban......there are going to be 60million boat accidents the next day.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    We'll see a resurgence of the militias again.
    A factor that seemed to come into play with Ruby Ridge and Waco though was location. It'll be difficult to have a standoff if the SWAT raids your Seattle apartment, even if you do, they'll just gas you out. There won't so much visible resistance in urban areas.

    Nail a copy of Heller to your door.

    Thats exactly what we need is resitance in urban areas on masse.If we all cower and say well I'll just hide or bury my guns somewhere all our rights will be lost.The men who gave us these rights so many years ago ,Walked away from families ,their farms their children everything to stand against at the time a superior force.It took time but theyfought and died togetherfor everything we have today including the second ammendment.How can we do less.Our Constitution is being shredded as we speak and we are going to have to take it back.Or you can cower down because you don't want to be inconvenienced.

    I don't live in an urban or suburban area.... this is 'Open Range'. There is no gun registration in AZ. I ain't concerned. That's why I'm 'here'.
