From what I understand, the ban might be over in Sept. 2004, but will we get to know whether or not it will before that time?

For certain you'll know by Oct. 2004, be patient, write and call your representatives and senators, let them know how you feel. Pull out the phone book for your area and send like letters and comments from those folks too, the more mail they receive on the subject the greater the chance that this un-constitutional travesty will die and the two-tiered monetary system created by it will pass too... This is one issue where our due diligence [b]CAN MAKE A DECIDED DIFFERENCE[/b]. Mike

Seems like we would know before October of 2004. If the ban sunsets in September, I say at 1201am the following day you are good to go. Probably won't know for [b]sure[/b] before that time 'cause the democraticfagots may try to squeeze something through late in the day/night prior to the sunset date.

According to the 2nd Amendment it never existed.... But besides that Im not giving up until it actually expires.

I would love to be wrong but here in California, the state law stay holds and we will not benfit from the AWB sunset. Someone please tell me I am wrong.

From what I've read, the current ban will sunset and go away. There is no question about that. The only thing is whether they will pass a replacement ban. That can happen at any time. If it doesn't happen before the current ban expires, then it's gone of course. There are also state bans to contend with. I believe CA has a nasty one that will not sunset with the Federal ban.

As does New Jersey. It's a nightmare for law abiding citizen. The sunset will have no effect her in NJ. Still no mags over 10, etc etc.

Here are some important phone numbers that can be used to voice your concerns about the AWB. There is NO REASON that every member on this board can't take five minutes and call them all. Dennis Hastert, Speaker of The House (202) 225-2976 Tom DeLay, House Majority Leader (202) 225-5951 Bill Frist, Senate Majority Leader (202) 224-3344 The White House (202) 456-1111 Also call your Senators. It only takes a couple minutes. Don't whine about the AWB unless you are doing your part to help stop it.

Absolutely correct. There is no "renewal" per se. The ban will expire Sept 04. At any time before [i]or after[/i] then, Congress may pass a new AWB. If it's before, then it would probably supercede the existing law. If after, there will be a period where every weapon becomes pre-ban again. Go out and buy 10 lower receivers, assemble them in "evil" configuration (one at a time, if you have to), and get a notarized statement that they were so configured. That means they are instantly verifiable pre-bans if another AWB comes out after the 94 AWB expires. The ideal situation, of course, is for us to beat it into Congress' collective skull that bills like this are going to be a losing issue for them, and there will never be another AWB.

remember this -- we are NOT homefree even after deadline passes. the ban CAN come back in 2005, 2006, 2010 ..etc some liberal idiots are predicting that GW wont win re-election, the congress in theory could go back to being democrap controlled. the future could hold another klinton and sept '04. never stop fighting.

If anyones interested check out HR 2038 [short title is "To reauthorize the assault weapons ban and for other purposes] at http://thomas.loc.gov. This is what we all need to be watchful of as the current ban may well sunset, but the Anti-gun crowd is trying to repeal the sunset clause from the '94 ban and also encompassing weapons the the 1st AWB didnt get. We cannot afford to assume that the house leaders will just let the old one sunset.
