Mother of God ... I'm far too tired after a long day of toiling to pay my tax bill, er, take care of my family. I'll read over this pile of bullcrap tomorrow. Not looking good. Particularly this:

Not good. :mad:

What, are they going to open 50 rd. boxes and count out 20 rds? 'Nobody wants to take your guns.' No, they'll just make it impossible for you to use them. If this were to pass you can probably kiss recreational shooting, competitive shooting, and public ranges goodbye... Which is of course the point.

Hopefully they make the mistake of showing their true colors...cranking up the heat too fast and the frogs start jumping out of the pot en mass, particularly the fudds and moderates.

Go Frogs! (Kinda like "Go Hawks" in WA but way cooler)

And here my only concern just yesterday was the national implementation on Internet sale tax starting 4/1/2019. (It caused me to order 5K of CCI just to avoid some tax while also getting a rebate.)

Again seriously, fight hard, work together, hit'em on all fronts and good luck!

They're emboldened by their election successes, and the far left is pulling out their wish list.

I can just hear their more calculating members shush them: "No, no, no, too soon, put that away! You'll tip our hand. We're not ready for that just yet, too many union voters still think we're not really after their guns. That's for a little later down the road, after a few more brainwashed SJWs graduate high school and reach voting age."

See "the plan" for them is to start at 20 rounds a month and 5 round magazines, then "compromise" with 100 and 10. That way they can accuse us of not being willing to compromise.

Oh, and also a Background check required before transfer of ammunition and a purchase waiting period delay up to 14 days.
