    Recently, someone asked me whether the prospect of a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives would affect my future firearms purchases. The answer is an emphatic “yes.” Although it won’t affect the number of unnecessary gun purchases I make – that number will remain ridiculously high – it will affect the types of guns I buy.

    Before the recent poll numbers indicating a possible change in leadership - in both the House and Senate - I was focusing strictly on gun purchases designed to improve my versatility as a hunter. Since people often call from around the country to invite me hunting I always have to be prepared to take anything from the smallest squirrel to the largest grizzly bear. Now, I’m thinking a lot more about tactical and self-defense models.



    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is swarmed by reporters after discussing Medicare and prescription drugs at the Sunrise Senior Center, Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2006, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (AP Photo/Steve Mitchell) To be sure, Pelosi would love to see something like the Clinton “assault rifle ban” of 1994 put into place early in her tenure as Speaker Pelosi. (It really hurts to write those last two words!). But in order for that to happen, two things will need to take place. She’ll need a Democratic Senate majority and a Democratic President. Needless to say, both of those things cannot happen for over two more years.

    So I’m preparing now for a worst-case scenario by setting aside about five thousand dollars to be spent on weapons and accessories that may well be targeted by future Democratic leaders. There’s a strong possibility that all of those funds will be spent on products made by the fine folks at Springfield Armory.

    First and foremost, I plan to stock up on 13-round magazines for my main home and car defense weapon – the .45 ACP XD by Springfield. These magazines will be almost as rare as a feminist orgasm if the Democrats take over. After that issue is resolved, the fun will really begin with my next rifle purchase. It will be an easy choice, given what I’ve heard about the Loaded Standard M1A Rifle.

    This gun fires the highly accurate and powerful .308 Winchester round. It comes equipped with a ten-round detachable magazine but don’t even think about buying this gun without getting a few 20-round pre-ban magazines, too. This is really the ultimate survival gun for those who refuse to relinquish responsibility for their safety to the local, state, and federal government.

    After I break in my new M1A Rifle, I plan to expand my collection of .45 ACPs with a 1911-A1 Micro Compact by Springfield. Needless to say, this light and compact weapon is the ultimate gun for those with concealed carry permits. The fact that it comes direct from the factory with Novak night sights is also a real plus. If you are stranded by the side of the road with this gun in your pocket no one will know you have it until it’s too late. The combination of the night sights and the .45 ACP power will be too much for almost any predator.

    Make absolutely certain you purchase this gun with the optional light rail (XML min-light included) for an extra $66. This is the kind of option that will likely come under fire if the Democrats take over.

    Finally, I want to top off this round of new additions by adding a new 1911 Lightweight Operator in .45 ACP. The gun - in addition to being absolutely gorgeous – is equipped with a light rail, which will allow you to use your XML mini-light on more than one firearm. The five-inch barrel will make the Operator my most accurate .45 ACP and should replace the XD as the home defense weapon (and relegate the latter to full-time car duty). This gun, also equipped with factory Novak night sights, has an MSRP of $1253.

    Getting started on this new spending spree may be the only positive thing about a potential Democratic Congressional takeover. For those who noticed, I’ve still got a budget of over $500 after adding these three news gems. The balance of course, will have to go towards a new gun safe. The Adams office is getting a little cluttered these days.

    Hasn't President Bush said repeatedly that he would sign an AWB renewal?

    Yes, he has.

    But based on this first post...hey, any shop owners on here, send out a scare notice to all your customers like this, get them to buy out your entire inventory in a blaze of profits right before the election! Panic sale! Panic sale! :)

    Seriously. I don't see anything overly significant happening. Especially if we just get the congressional gridlock we need.

    Anybody else notice that he sure likes Springfield Armory?

    Not that there's anything wrong with that...

    It isn't Speaker Pelosi that worries me. It's the impeachment of GW and removal from office. This will be closely followed by the impeachment of Cheeny and removal from office. Hello president Pelosi. By the book and all legal. :what: Call me a moonbat if you will but considering all options doesn't hurt.

    If Bush were impeached, Cheney would become President. Cheney would then appoint a new Vice President. I don't think we need to worry about a President Pelosi :barf: before 2008.

    Cheeny could appoint all he wanted. If the senate didn't confirm before Cheenys removal what happens?

    You would get the Speaker of the House (presumably Pelosi). I suspect you'd also get some rioting.

    He was given the opportunity to do so when the Dems attached an AWB renewal provison to the first manufacturers' liability protection act. The White House announced it did not want the provision on that bill.

    If Bush intended to sign a renewal, it passed up a golden opportunity to do so.

    Does this bozo really think the M1A is on anyone's radar for a ban? And the 1911s he listed? I can see a case for the hi-cap XD mags, but this person clearly doesn't have a clue.

    I suspect it's either another Repub hack rallying the bubbas or someone with stock in Springfield.

    So far as I know, Springfield isn't publically traded.

    Cheney goes into the Capitol with his shotgun and suggests that they confirm who he likes. :cool:

    Yes, I do. All guns are on the radar. That is the goal.

    Why wouldn't the M1A be. It is a Semi-auto that is mag fed. Used by the military and some law enforcement. Shoots a "high powered" round. Other than being made in the USA this description is no different than my FAL that has USA made parts to comply with Federal law.

    I doubt there will be any Ruger-esque deals or "loop holes" the next time a Assault Weapons ban is passed. So it is not hard to see what could happen.

    In standard form it is already banned in **********. They can't get one with the regular flash suppressor.

    Every firearm is on the radar for banning for the anti-gun rights folks. Here in MD, Ceasefire put out a "report" that the AR-15, M1 Carbine, SKS and Mini-14 ought to be banned. If they are successful (which they will be if O'Malley is elected) the M1A (along with any other semi-auto rifle) won't be far behind. Then they'll work extra hard to ban handguns, which they came too close to with their "integrated lock" crap.

    Never forget that the anti's want ALL guns, taking them incrementally model by model is perfectly fine by them. Nothing is safe: semi-auto rifle = assault weapon, bolt action = sniper gun, shotgun = destructive device, etc.

    Does the VP appointment have to be confirmed?

    The House can impeach all it wants, but the Senate would still have to actually kick the President out. The Senate has to impeach by a 2/3's majority. I doubt they will get that in the next 2 years if ever.

    Personally, I would buy AK stuff or any other imported weapon or imported magazine (Saiga owners). I think imports of guns or ammo would be the first target. High Cap. magazines would be the next buy.

    Doesn't anyone else remember "The Camel's nose is under the tent?"

    That came out of, IIRC, Howard Metzenbaum (Ohio)--or was it Drengel(sp?) (MI), right after sick Willy and the rest got the '94 AWB passed.

    Anyone who trusts the Democrat Party on NOT trying to placate their antigun nut-wing has lost sight of the Party Platform.

    With clinton associates who fell ill or died do you realy think Cheney would have any time to appoint?
    What you will have may be a Fed version of the SF CA handgun ban.

    Well, golly... I guess that's reason to vote for a Democrat, or at any rate, against a Republican... Yup, uh huh...

    Okay. You can go back to Democratic Underground now.

    Bush said that he'd sign the AWB when he KNEW that it'd never make it to his desk. And he worked to make sure that it wouldn't make it to his desk.

    Now, git!

    If they get what they really want, we'd be lucky to have muzzleloaders.

    But you need loose powder to make those work, and as everyone knows, that kind of powder is the perfect thing for terrorists.

    As for the M1A, it's been specifically named in various bans and ban proposals.

    Therefore: Since he has no stock, the member is a bozo and is another Repub hack.
