    So...given how things went last night. I think many of us are more afraid of unconstitutional executive orders, ATF regulations, etc. than legislative action.

    So which items are most likely to be targets of regulations and executive orders? I would think:
    • "Assault Rifles"
    • High Capacity Assault Weapon Magazines
    • High Capacity Pistol Magazines

    It does seem like the prudent person a) will move to buy a few of these items if he thinks they will be banned, b) has already done this. Sadly I'm in the former category.

    Agreed. None of the above. There's no traction whatsoever in congress for any gun control legislation.

    radio.. an unconstitutional EO will be knocked down pretty quick.. too many people watching him to let one go. That is at least until he gets another appointment.

    I think it is supremely naive to think that O and Holder are going to sit on their hands for the next four years, and leave things as they are.
    The next time someone goes berserk and shoots up the place, the anti's will see this as their big opportuntity to capitalize on their momentum ( and time advantage), then the media will blast it from the mountaintops, keeping it in the forefront as though no other news existed.The administration will "have" to respond to the "public outrage" and "will of the people", and do something.
    As the OP pointed out, he/they can do considerable damage with mere EO's, they don't need any "legislative action".
    edit: just halting the import of foreign guns,ammo and magazines is easily within his ability, and wouldn't resuslt in any successful constitutional challenges.

    I see change coming. No idea if there will be any legislative changes that impact the current status quo in terms of firearms. But I suspect we will see an ammo tax. What changed last night? HOPE

    Don't see any changes out of the administration. If they were going to do something why wait until the second term, they couldn't have thought anyone in the RKBA side was going to vote for them anyway.

    Oh, I read it. Extra-legislative action might be likely if there were repeated and hard-fought battles over gun control bills in congress, but that's not the current situation, nor has it been for some time. Trying something that unpopular would bring all manner of hellaciousness down upon the administration from a good number of congresscritters who are already on the warpath from previous incidents.

    None. Gun control is not a radar scope item. I know that many don't agree but it's not. Or not a prominent one at any rate. I could of course be wrong and many will say I am. But my answer remains...none.

    One problem are decisions like Heller. SCOTUS declared the 2A is not an unlimited right. They created the notion of "sensitive places". Other restrictions are possible.

    I agree, ammunition is likely to be taxed, and limits on the amount a person can possess will also be imposed.

    Look for a black market on reloaded ammunition, and corresponding efforts by the BATFE to suppress it.

    It will become very imortant to know who your friends are...

    Just taking a shot in the dark here but I wouldn't be shocked to a see a Clinton era AWB and ammo taxed to the point no one can afford it. Not to mention a slew of mag capacity limits or things such as "special forms" for internet orders of ammo exceeding 1K rounds at a time. Will it happen or will it not I don't know but I would not be shocked.

    If they tax ammo out of existence, they'll get the ammunition back sans primer, case and powder.

    I fully expect to see states resisting that law. Remember, ALL of this is based upon the corrupted Commerce Clause. If everything is kept within the state, the Feds should not have jurisidiction. This has not stopped them in the past, so I think it really does come down to whether or not the states are willing to do violence against Federal law enforcement.

    I say the above not to encourage anyone to action, but as an actual political reality.

    Nothing.

    Despite the NRA lies, the Democratic party learned it's lesson in 1994.

    This has always been my motto, however I would like to think the liberals will not be able to pass any lasting bans/laws on us in the next four years, however it is not likely that they will be okay with the current status quo. they will fight for more regulation for this I am certain, just how much will they get away with "No one really knows". :uhoh:

    They don't have to ban anything, just tax it to the point it becomes an expensive paperweight

    IMHO, the threat is not in legislation or executive orders. We lost our chance to replace Ginsburg and we should also keep in mind that Thomas has a heart condition. Our 5:4 (really a 4.5:4.5) will likely be a 4:5 four years from now.

    So many with their head still in the sand. The threat to our 2nd amendment may not be an immediate one but it is coming. O will be replacing 2-3 Supreme Court judges in his next term. Many of the decisions for our gun rights have come down to just one vote for our rights. After this term the antis will be able to push legislation before a panel of judges that can change the national landscape from one with the right to keep and bear arms to one that can't.

    What cases specifically are expected to be brought before the supreme court?
