    Over a week and no differences here in Vermont...
    Although the parking lot at the local gun shops seem to be fuller lately, which is good for the economy, right???
    Hmmmmm.... I guess that it's not the weapon that causes the crime....
    Hope the next President realizes this...

    I don't seem to recollect an influx of full auto death in my area, no. :rolleyes:

    Nothing in NH, either.

    Wow, I'm SHOCKED!!!

    :scrutiny:

    It's ALMOST like the ban was useless and accomplished nothing! Imagine that? Wow.

    :banghead:

    Nothing in SF, though we did have an unprovoked stabbing after a Giants game.

    I haven't heard about anything. I have my nets set out for the flood of AK47s, Uzis, Tec 9s etc and I haven't even caught a normal cap magazine yet. I must have them set up on the wrong street?

    If any crimes, anywhere had been committed with anything even resembling an "assault weapon," it would've been all over the national news.

    Only thing I've noticed is an abundance of overly aggressive drivers sporting JohnJohn stickers who seem to dislike my GWB sticker.

    Though they seem to back off once they notice the NRA logo just below.

    Imagine that

    They did bust this kid for supposedly planning a Columbine like event. They have video of him with an AK-47. As close as it is to Detroit I'm surprised a bigger deal wasn't made of it, but it wasn't, the "assault weapon" angle I mean.

    Yesterday, some guy with a shotgun killed an unarmed guard with one shot to the chest at the Illinois capitol. Earlier in the day, he had attempted to rob a gunstore. A local radio announcer (in St. Louis) surmised that maybe he wanted to steal one of them there assault weapons that you can suddenly buy now. He wasn't a commentator, wasn't hosting a talk show, just giving us the latest news at the top of the hour, and decided that that uninformed guess was a necessary part of the story.

    Indiana is strangely quiet. I went out and checked the day the ban expired, looking for the flood of Assault Weapons on my street. Didn't find any. Maybe the surge just hasn't washed up here yet?

    You mean the man who was about to commit a federal felony and rob a bank wasn't turned back at the door like a vampire from garlic by the nice widdle engraved sign saying it was a "Gun Free Zone"?

    I'm so shocked!

    "Hrmmmmm. Nobody here will be able to effectively resist..."

    Come on don't lie ya'll the fact that we haven't seen a thousand deaths at the hands of full auto packing, Icecream truck driving, clown nose wearing penguins Is proof that the Bush Regime is suppressing the free media...:mad: :cuss:

    I've too afraid to go outside to get the paper. TV might backlight me. I think I've been hearing constant automatic fire from Uzis and AK47s. My wife says it's just the acorns falling on the roof but what does she know. I'm not taking any chances until I get an "all clear" from CBS.

    There were many extended shot strings sounding off around my town on the day the ban ended. There may be a local ordinance against firing a gun in town??? If celebrating qualifies as a crime then yes but other than that it's been quiet ever since. :D

    Read that article about the kid who was shooting the ak47... and found it extremelhy disturbing that his dad was helping him - helping him steal golf carts, hiding guns, etc etc. and was arrested as well.

    i'm like - omg...

    THEN <rofl> i have to go back to the mothers statments... he's a good kid of course.... "brainwashed" by the nazi sites...

    :rolleyes:

    THIS gets me to wondering - his kid was stealing golf carts.. and he was (allegedly) an accomplice... and the wife had.... no... clue?

    not only that - her bouncing baby boy is a good boy btw...

    bleh

    for the record - live in the sticks and i've not even heard one autofire mag fired off... and you can hear for quite some distance in the sticks =) Not to mention i've somehow missed news of the masses of bloody AK-47/uzi/tec-9 induced corpses....

    Nothing in Southern California.

    But hell, we're not even allowed AR's and AK's... so all I hear is crickets.

    The only crime in my area is the fact that I don't have the extra cash to go buy one. Thats a crime!

    My wife told me last night if we get the extra cash I should buy a .50 BMG

    Did I get a keeper or what?

    Yeah, a few blocks from where I live some guy opened up his living room window and opened fire on another tenant of the apartment building with an ak-47. Needless to say, he was caught at an extremely high rate of speed. We have a lot of rocket scientists living around here.

    (well, I'm not sure what's so 'great' about it...)

    Not even any gang related shootings reported. How disappointing is that? Heck, we always have gang related shootings and stuff.
