Now that it has been over 100 days since the election and Bush has rewarded a lot of industries who got him there... what is he going to do for the gun owners who got out the vote for him. Better yet... what reasonable expectations do you have from our now "gun friendly" president. Personally, I would like to see hi-capacity clips re-legalized and the term "pre-bans" become something that only the old timers talk about. AND I would love to have the HK Tacticals, Experts and 23's become more affordable [:p].

Without sounding overly cynical, I expect the most we’ll see is a brief delay of the inevitable.

Honestly at this point in time the best we can hope for is that Dubya won't do much of anything. By that I mean nothing to further erode our rights. If he is re-elected, that will be when he could do some real good. The hi-cap ban is set to sunset in 2004, just before the election. If by executive order he extends the ban for a year to say...study its effect, then after he's elected he can veto a bill to allow it to continue. If we can get a more gun-friendly Senate, that wouldn't hurt either.

Nonsense -- there is no sunset provision on the high-capacity magazine ban. Only the "assault weapon" section of the 1994 Omnibus Crime Act has a sunset provision. If you believe I am in error, please quote the line from the Act that says otherwise.

We sure as Hell have come a long way from "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country", from Jack Kennedy in January, 1961. I say get the government out of the way. Matter of fact just close it for three months of the year, like it used to do.

What he is going to do is not be Al Gore. I think that the minute we get a Democrat Congress and President handguns are banned, along with a lot of other fun and important stuff. GunLvr

"As long as the Congress is in session, no man's life, liberty or property is safe." Hun, that's pretty good, in fact I like it a lot. Did you make that up or get it somewhere? It sounds familiar, and if you made it up yourself, you should get into politics. As far as what's dubya gonna do for us? Not much. But not going to do much against us either, I suspect. Which is much better than what would have happened had the election gone the other way. Am I happy and content with the "de-testosteronization" of "conservative" politicians? No. But ya take what ya can get.

Note from EricTheHun - "As long as the Congress is in session, no man's life, liberty or property is safe." I'm sure I must have heard that someplace, change the phrase to 'Legislature' and it may have been said by Mark Twain. 'Congress' sounds more like something Will Rogers would have used.

It is interesting that the NRA has noted how essential gun owners were in getting Bush elected and ar-15.com members here so far, have seemed to be content to have just have "no new gun laws"... I wish big oil and energy companies would have been content to keep things as they were. But seriously, if no one wants better laws or old laws repealed, then they are content with the present laws and one must conclude that those laws are reasonable... but there has always been a lot of whining about present laws, was that whining to whine or does someone have a better idea of what the laws should be. Guess I am just confused, it seems people are complaining about the laws and are getting out the vote to support gun rights, but once they are in power they are satisfied with the present laws and see no need to change them, just enforce them... right??
