Sooo.....

What are we to expect if Hillary wins? I know in the short term any and all gun stores will be sold out of pretty much everything. However looking past the first few months what are we expecting/what has she "promised" to do?

Forced Background checks on all sales?
AWB?
National firearms registration?

All these things sound so wonderful. Let's get er' done!

But in all seriousness, why you so paranoid? Even if Democrats win the Senate, the House will still be majority Republican. The worst (or best, depending on your agenda) thing that will happen is some states will implement even more gun control and a left leaning Supreme Court will uphold the new restrictions.

Fox News should run headlines that she's coming for your guns during her entire presidency like they did Obama. There are still people hunkered down in their bunkers waiting for his Marxist troops to come marching down their streets to take them away.

Of course, then there's common sense legislation that over 90% of the people back and the only legislation they attempted to pass.

Laws will be exactly the same as now, and if you have money invested in gun manufacturers stocks you'll make a lot of money off of paranoid people stocking up.
Yep, nothing sells more guns than a mass shooting. Paranoia begets paranoia.

Not much. The last debate she talked about closing a couple of loopholes ... provided congress goes along with that.

But overall, I see it a lot like the Obama administration, where little was done, but much panic was felt by gun advocates.

I suggest you buy a bunch more ... just in case.

In practical terms? Almost certainly nothing.

You know that. I know that. The NRA knows that. Fox News and the New York Times know that.

The Second Amendment isn't going to disappear. And even if the Democrats sweep both the House and Senate, there are more than enough pro- gun-right Democrats in Congress to ensure that any significant restriction of gun-ownership rights wouldn't have a snowball's chance in hell of passing. To add to which, most gun-ownership laws are written and enforced at the State level.

Again: You already know this.

But, let's just pretend that the US President is some sort of all-powerful dictator who can send her army of jackbooted thugs to kick down the door of your double-wide and grab all your precious freedom-lovin' guns, if that's what make you feel better.

Here's exactly what will happen: she will go after guns just like Obama did. In other words, hardly at all.

The last eight years of whinging about Obama coming to take your guns has resulted in only whinging, no actual action of taking guns.

I really should buy some fun stock though. Get rich off of idiots.

yeah yeah yeah, keep avoiding pointing out the SCOTUS justices that will make all the difference.

Justices don't form laws.

How many times has Obama put through tough gun legislation only to have conservative judges shoot it down (pun intended)?

they accept or reject the laws put in place when challenged. that is why many liberals are NOT voting for Hillary, they are voting so that SCOTUS is not full of "conservative" judges.

Congrats, now you know what it's like to be a gay person facing the prospect of a Trump presidency in a 4 year period when 3 SCOTUS Justices will be replaced. At least gun ownership is a choice. ;)
thanks for being honest and admitting SCOTUS makes a difference, still love you :D

Common sense legislation? You mean like locking up crazy people instead of shoving them into society out of some "fairness" belief? You mean break up the drug-laden psychiatric profession and stop coddling people who obviously are NOT fit to be treated like the rest of us?

Im in for this. Let me know when this goes down. :)

We agree on all fronts, now just throw in expanded background checks and if they're on a no fly list, they also get no guns. Seems like we should be able to agree that this is common sense.

Nothing will change. Just like the low information voters on the left who believe that Roe v Wade will be overturned and Republicans will be coming in the bedrooms of everyone checking on what they're doing. It's not going to happen. It will never happen. Makes for good soundbites and website clicks though.

This tells me that you learned absolutely nothing from the thread I mentioned you on with the ad regarding Roy blunt and Jason Kanders. Instead, you again roll back into your delusions that if a Blue is in office, they will be coming to take your guns away.

How about you watch that ad again, then revisit this thread, because that ad alone tells you all that you need to know.
