The only hope you have is to accept the fact that you are already dead. And the sooner you accept that, the sooner you will be able to function as a soldier is supposed to function, without mercy, without compassion, without remorse.

It's a happy time, yes, but let's not stop educating the masses regarding the true nature of the AWB and how truly meaningless it was to the average citizen. Let's make sure to keep reminding the majority of folks around us that they're just as safe now as they have been for the last 10 years, that there won't be a "flood of eeevil assault weapons" hitting the streets, etc.

While I'm thinking about it - Lord knows I've been wanting a 14.5 Bushy w/ the The Three Evil Features for a while now but that's my business and I'm not going to rub it into the face of any anti-gun peeps I come across; why give them one calorie of fuel for their fires? Once again, counter their hyberbole and outright lies with reason and facts, let the media cycle move on, and enjoy the 3 Evil Features so many of y'all have been denied these 10 long years.

OK, I'm off the soap box. Let's party!!!

It is so wiered how 35 miniutes ago something was illegal but now (35 miniutes later) it is perfectly legal. (No more sketching when going to the range). I hope the rest of the country (the uninformed/ the uninterested/ the damn hippies) will learn what a big retarded waste of time the ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN was. For some people it didnt stop them from doing anything and it just made criminals out of regular people (depending on how you look at it). It had no effect on its "publicaly" intended problem.... Sorry that was just my rant... Time to find that damn moly lube and stock wrench. And my replacement mag boddies, replacement springs , replacement floorplates and replacement followers...

an open letter from the ATF about the sunset,,

I now have 3 "assault weapons," and none of them have killed anyone yet. I guess the Brady Campaign was wrong.

For those who need documented verification from the gov't go here.

BH1, Many thanks for the info. I have emailed it to about 30 of my friends. I have been fighting the AWB since it was wrongfully placed upon us ten years ago and I am happy to see it go. Seeing it in writing is even better!

I only wish I could thread the DPMS super bull I have, it's so damned big though.....hmmm maybe a real suppressor....

This is a major victory, It is rare that we should ever loose any gun rights and get them back.

Now to just get four barrels threaded. Who knows who has the best deal....
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 9:40:51 PM EDT
still have 20 minutes in mountain time zone. i'm gonna make a sandwitch, drink some coffee, grab my tools and head downstairs to the gun room. at 12:00:01 i will start threading.

*smirks* If ya'll have y'er nippley bits pierced, with things on the end having 1/2x28tpi I'm gonna be sick. LOL
I would have posted earlier, but I just got home from work so:
Happy friggin new year. Now the whining,whimpy, heartless, evil, cowardly, un-informed, anti-gun, freedom hating, liberal ****-offs can go (as my mom used to say) "Scratch yer butt and get glad"
Now its Magpul 93A time, and DPMS "kitty kat" pistol time too.
Wonder if putting one of those black "cane or crutch" tips on the end of the buffer tube of a pistol would be considered a "stock", or mearly something to prevent dents.....

SORRY!!!!!!!! Those behind the Kalifornia Iron and Lace curtain are still out of luck. From the ATF on the expiration of the ban:

Expiration of the Federal law will not change any provisions of State law or local ordinances.
Questions concerning State assault weapons restrictions should be referred to State and local

And please keep the energy and pro-gun front rolling! I'm poor and won't be able to afford my 1st AR for at least 5 months.

So the Fat Lady IS singing!

Wonder what happened to all those die-hard pessimists (AWB ain't never gonna die) who underestimated us (and themselves)---learn from it fellas
I must admit that up until early this year I had some doubts...I'm just not used to this strange business of gov't. actually rectifying a situation where citizens' "inalienable" rights were violated.

And although I'm still stuck in California Dreamland with nothing to buy, I couldn't be happier (happiest day of the year) that for once we scored BIG on this one.
This one's for the USA and for all who fought for our freedoms --and pardon the language, but *Fuck* all those who would take them away.

Congrats guys

Special Thanks to:

Rep. Tom Delay
Sen. Bill Frist
President George Bush ("he works in strange ways and somehow came through")
awbansunset.com (We really should thank him/them for a great job)
NRA (yes, I do believe they took an honest stand for us this time)
GOA...and countless other good citizens who did something about it!!!
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 11:58:06 PM EDT
I Just wanted to add my thanks to all of you who have worked so hard to win back a couple of the many rights that have been leeched away over the years. I also wanted to give my condolances to those who live in California, New York, New Jersey, and anywhere else that this change really doesn't come as the welcome releif that it should.

Oh yeah, sorry to all of the guys with guns listed on GunsAmerica.com who's pre-bans won't sell for that extra thousand dollars now. And to the guy who was gonna pawn his pre-ban to make the last payment on that engagment ring... get yer priorities straight. LOL

Can somebody point me to information regarding California law on "assault weapons". I thought with the AWB sunsetting, I was going to lawfully get a collapsable stock, but now I'm not sure. Can anybody help me on this? hinking.gif

As I understand it, if you already had your AR registered with the DOJ then you should be able to add any of the "evil" features. Kalifornia already saw it as an assault weapon, only the federal law was keeping you from the other features..... That is until today!!!! Man I love saying that!!

Congradulations to the rest of the Free USA, but NJ is still screwed because of Florio.
Lets see, the Delaware River, truely must be AMAZING.
Crime and illegal use of weapons must stop on the Jersey side.
NJ Assault weapon ban - more restrictive then the Feds.
PA the same LAW Abiding citizen can apply & obtain permits for Machinegun & a Silencer.
PA ..... America starts here.

Congrats again, but watch your backs.
