    First, it should GunMageddon, both because Armageddon has two d's and one g, and because Mag then appears in the middle (as in "magazine" (but not clip)).

    Second, "ArmsMageddon" would have been funnier all around.

    "ArmsMageddon" certainly has more appeal

    Based on reading the actual bills (rather than the inflammatory headlines), I can see very little to disagree with.

    I suggest anyone interested in intellectual honesty read the bills.

    Basically very little.

    Perhaps the restrictions on homemade weapons are a touch too much. As long as a unique serial number is stamped on each receiver and there is a strict liability (as in the legal term) on those receivers then having to go through a formal recognition process could be overly onerous. But that would require a registered list, which I know you'll hate.

    No, not at all. Where does this legislation require that???

    You may have to modify them to meet new requirements but nobody is claiming you have to give anything up.

    But please show me the part of the bill that requires you to "get rid of the ARs you already legally own".

    I always wondered how states can infringe on something that cannot be infringed upon.

    Ban button release for magazine?? So what if the magazine just clips in place? Seems like another law that simply changes gun design and makes things difficult for folks who have weapons now illegal or if grandfathered (not likely from other provisions) that they want to sell.

    Funny, when states try and enforce immigration laws the Feds take them to court. Then stuff like this happens, and all you hear from the Feds is the crickets chirping.

    I always wondered how guys could be all "States' rights!!!" until that state does something they don't like, and they start whining about it.

    A state cannot overturn the 2nd Amendment, though that fact won't keep them from trying.

    It will require money to fight this in court, ultimately requiring a Supreme Court decision - another reason the makeup of the highest court in the land is critical.

    I can understand if it's a 10th Amendment issue, but the Bill of Rights is law of the land. How can states infringe on something that is already untouchable, such as the 1A and 2A?

    Like gay marriage and LGBT rights? Segregation by race? Is that also "whining"?

    Oh yeah I had forgotten the Americans won WW2 singlehandedly. We should remember that more often even if they arrived a bit late. The Brits and the Russians did help you guys a tiny bit though, but nothing significant.
