Long time lurker, yada yada. Since the sunset of the AWB, two elected idiots here in Oregon have proposed state versions of the AWB, both worse than the Fed AWB. Jim Francesconi and Ginny Burdick, both serious gun-grabbers, have stated that they will go for it in January. Given the total lack of common sense and guts in Salem, it's probably a real possibility. Other states can't or won't be far behind. Won't it be a kick in the butt if we look back to the AWB as the good old days?

Time to go on a shopping spree!!!

Frankly, if there are going to be AW bans, they should be on the state level (following Howard Dean's line of reasoning). At least citizens would then have the option of voting with their feet by moving to states that are friendly to their choice of firearms. Otherwise with a federal ban, there is no place to run to.

Least we have a chance to get stuff now...and I'm glad the AWB did sunset because in 1994 I was much much to young to buy guns lol. Least I have a chance to do what I want...

And I'm in WV...which means my state will probably be the last to do anything lol.

We should be pretty safe, gun control is like kryptonite here.

Same here. Both parties know gun control is a ticket to unemployment.

you guys need to stop bitching talking and start writing some letters and making some phone calls.
Link Posted: 9/21/2004 12:08:21 PM EST
Can't we bitch and write letters? I like to bitch.

No one lives in Iowa. No other states care about Iowa. We should be safe for now, I hope.

thats bullshit if oregon passes an AWB I can see states like cali and new york because they have high crime rates and too many anti-gun pussy's....but oregon is alot more of sportsman/hunting/gun owners state....at least I thought!! but then again CT has a state ban which is surprising....I'd be pissed thats for sure!!! We need to just make sure it doesnt happen!!

Better rally the troops for a phone call and letter barrage.

AND start organizing. A large unified voice will carry a lot more weight than random letters. NRA typically gets involved in this kind of battle. If you live in a state facing this you really have no excuse not to join. If you don't want to join, you can still contribute to NRA-ILA.

Ok, Thanks for the info. That bitch has got to go!

IMO...This seems like a chance to pump AWBanSunset.com with a new mission. The web sight is great and in place anyway. Why not send them a few bucks to support the state AWB mission. They and the NRA et al did a HELL of a job on the Fed, now let's turn our sights on the states. Just a thought.
