    If they ban assault rifles, What fully happens to people who own assault rifles do they have to turn them in do they get to keep them or does it mean that they just won't build anymore the ones that are on the market now that's it. Just wondering for people who are going out and buying them now will they have to turn around and turn them in or will they be able to keep them? Will they be grandfather clause in?

    First of all, there is no political chance for the AWB to pass at this point. That train has left the station. They have no votes and no public support anymore. However, remember that we are always one mass-shooting away from it - the anti-gun folks will get out of the woods again given the slightest opportunity.

    Second, it was supposed to grandfather the weapons. People would still be able to use them but manufacturers would eventually stop producing new parts and magazines as it would become unprofitable, new shooters would stop learning the platform, etc. Feinstein said that she wanted to block the supply and let the time and market forces finish the job.

    They can't make a law retroactive so any you now own will be grandfathered.
    Time to figure out how to make AK's in your basement.

    You know, with all these "boating accidents" we're having the waterways should be getting pretty full of them.

    Assault rifles already require a lengthy background check, a large sum of money and out of reach for most people after 1986. People who legally own "Assault rifles" are already required to register them. Modern sporting rifles are as common as a .22 rifle and fire one round each time the trigger is pulled. Don't play into the propaganda networks demonizing regular semi-auto sporting rifles. Assault rifles have an option for full auto fire.

    Didn't they do that in New York?

    As far as what I'll do, I'll just keep 'em locked up, drive a little a deeper into the woods to go shooting and resist as much as possible should someone come knocking at my door.
