I have been wondering if a new AWB were to be put into place what should I stock up with NOW during this FREEDOM time span.

1. What would you get NOW before a new ban were in place?

Please keep it simple.

Mags and lowers.

Even more mags than the 36 I already have plus several stripped lower receivers. Downside is if the parts become unavailable either by being outlawed or highly restricted then I have would some rather expensive paper weights. This clause from HR2038, which will probably be resurrected in 2005, could be a problem:


(37) CONVERSION KIT- The term `conversion kit' means any part or combination of parts designed and intended for use in converting a firearm into a semiautomatic assault weapon, and any combination of parts from which a semiautomatic assault weapon can be assembled if the parts are in the possession or under the control of a person.


Also, one of Chuck Schemer's older "ban bills" wanted to put firearm parts such as barrels and firing pins in the same category as the lower receiver and require FFL transfer meaning they would be heavily regulated.

Magazines and ammunition. I am cramming as much of both as I can responsibly into my storage areas.

I would add ammo and reloading supplies to that list.

Ammo.

I think one tactic of the anti-gun Nazi's may to target ammo availability along the lines of what was proposed in docufictionary movie "Bowling for Columbine".

I don't deal in speculation.

Threads like this are just begging for another more restrictive AWB.

AR15, AR-10, FAL, and AK receivers...

Parts kits, compliance parts, sideplates...

Mags, belts, clips, links...

Cheap post-ban stuff because some people are throwing away stuff cheap...

yup, that is why I have no money!

I would just stock up on voting pro-gun reps and senators into office and rolling back other restrictions like FOPA '86, NFA '68 and NFA '34. Anything else means we are still on the defensive on a Constitutionally protected right

Get out and vote, convince your friends and family to vote for the right canidates... (theres more than just the oval office at stake)

You can't shoot a lower. Put your money into complete rifles, or parts to build complete rifles. Do not buy the next lower until you have your present ones complete.

Put money into at least 10 good new mags per rifle.

Spare parts (firing pins, extractors, springs, etc, all the little stuff).

Ammo.

Regardless of how many lowers you have, or how many complete rifles you have, without plenty of normal capacity mags to feed them, and ammo, you are screwed.

Yes, some of the proposals are to make it illegal to possess parts, have parts all go through the same process as buying 4473's.

And for guys to say, well, I don't have to worry about ammo bans, I reload... you don't think they will ban reloading components? Have laws against "manufacturing illegal assault ammo without a license"?

DO NOT ASSUME future bans will be like the previous ban.

We need to spend our time writing,calling and emailing our elected officials so we don't see another ban. Not wasting our time in this thread.

Nothing. I'll have the balls to ignore the next one too!

My htuoght s exactly. The next one, if a certain person gets in office with a friendly congress, will be more rstrictive and NOT have a sunset clause. Lool at the bills being presented of talked about, .50 cal. bans, no ammo over .30-.30 power, etc. It will be much worse!
