    If this AWB ends up going through, and person to person sales are no longer a legal option, will sites like these become obsolete? I have certainly enjoyed, and greatly appreciate this site, and hope to see it continue on for years to come. Any thoughts?

    Why should anything happen to this site? Classifieds are only part of the content and look at how many firearm related sites that are very popular and do not have classifieds for guns.
     
    Nwcid, ATCclears, Sun195 and 3 others like this.

    Exactly - this site is a lot more than just a trading post.

    Will NWFA submit to Liability, or will all this talk of "My cold dead hands" pan out?

    Continue as usual, regardless of laws passed.

    Take a look at Calguns.net and see what restrictive state laws do to forums.

    A whole lot - You can count on it. Much more than is most likely taking place now.

    I thought about this same question.
    I've mentioned this site to gun store owners. If gun stores that are marketed on this site.
    They are Shocked that this hasn't ever been shut down. They didn't even know about this site.
    Remember prohibition? Well this will be the new Boot legging.
    So get a fast car ready to run from the ATF.

    People will start using NWF for more than a "craig's list" for local guns:

    The idiots who are charging $1000 for a 10/22 with a 25 round magazine will go away and the site will be the better for it. The classifieds can still exist, firearm deals would just have to meet at an FFL. I would suppose that the state headings would become obsolete, as all deals would be FFL, regardless of state lines...
