Although I think it's hard to predict what's going to happen in November, and I do agree that most polls tend to undercount the support Trump/Republicans have, we have to acknowledge that there is a chance Biden may win and Dems. may take control of the Senate as well. If that happens it's pretty clear their first order of business will be to pass some kind of gun legislation. At minimum this will be some kind of universal background check. Probably a new AWB as well, and this time they will be smart enough to prevent gunmakers from finding an easy work around (like pinning and welding collapsible stocks and swapping out muzzle brakes for flash hiders.) Maybe something modeled on the NY SAFE act? Wondering what people are doing in anticipation of this possibility.

Personally, I already own 1/2 dozen AR's in various configurations and calibers, plus a couple of stripped receivers and lower parts kits so AWB doesn't worry me all that much (and I'm honestly not all that worried about a forced buy back). I assume most of the guys on this forum have been shooting for a while and are in a somewhat similar position, so hopefully not a lot of you are among the first time buyers stampeding to get an AR.

Ammo is obviously a concern, but I do think prices will come down, even if Dems. elected. Full capacity mags are also in danger, but again if you've been shooting a while you should have some stockpiled already. Two of the things I do worry about are NFA items and legality of pistol braces. I personally like shooting short barreled AR's. At practical distances (under 200 yards) they don't give up anything to full size AR's and they are lighter, more maneuverable and quicker on target. But it's only a matter of time before some nitwit walks into a bar or a movie theater with and SBR under his raincoat, uses a gun with a silencer, or, god forbid, actually uses a machine gun to start shooting people.

Right now, I think this stuff is off the liberal's radar. Hell, half my liberal friends think machine guns can't be owned by civilians, and the other half think AR's are machine guns. But if we have a mass shooting where an NFA item is used this will be seen as very low hanging fruit to the Democrats. A large portion of America doesn't think people should be allowed to own an AR or an AK, how do you think they're going to feel when they realize machine guns and silencers are perfectly legal in many states?

And here's an interesting fact that I just learned - that $200 tax stamp you have to pay to register an NFA item hasn't changed since the law was enacted in 1934. That's right - if you wanted to register an item in 1934 it cost the same $200. (I find this difficult to believe, so maybe I'm wrong on this, but I do recall reading this recently).

So personally, I do see 1-2 silencers, another SBR and a couple of pistol braces in my future. Oh, and maybe a gun trust.

Curious what others are doing.

    I’m not worried. I’m gonna go boating out to a island in the Aleutian chain. I’m gonna take all my guns and ammo. You should come. I will make room for ALL of your guns. My aluminum welds haven’t given me issues before but I have a gut feeling that tells me to chart a path along side a buddy in his boat in case of sudden sinking syndrome. It seems to affect boats a lot more when loaded down with brass, lead, 4130, 4140, stainless 416, odd right?

    ACB getting in there could be a game changer in opposing any radical legislation Dems propose.
    Most recently, I have been buying pistol braced ARs and double stack EDC handguns. I’m G2G in the other stuff now.

    I shouldn't be, but I am surprised THAT many got registered. Stupid is as stupid does. Hopefully that number is simply hyperinflated by some dirty pol to try and save face.

    Although I think it's hard to predict what's going to happen in November, and I do agree that most polls tend to undercount the support Trump/Republicans have, we have to acknowledge that there is a chance Biden may win and Dems. may take control of the Senate as well. If that happens it's pretty clear their first order of business will be to pass some kind of gun legislation. At minimum this will be some kind of universal background check. Probably a new AWB as well, and this time they will be smart enough to prevent gunmakers from finding an easy work around (like pinning and welding collapsible stocks and swapping out muzzle brakes for flash hiders.) Maybe something modeled on the NY SAFE act? Wondering what people are doing in anticipation of this possibility.

    Personally, I already own 1/2 dozen AR's in various configurations and calibers, plus a couple of stripped receivers and lower parts kits so AWB doesn't worry me all that much (and I'm honestly not all that worried about a forced buy back). I assume most of the guys on this forum have been shooting for a while and are in a somewhat similar position, so hopefully not a lot of you are among the first time buyers stampeding to get an AR.

    Ammo is obviously a concern, but I do think prices will come down, even if Dems. elected. Full capacity mags are also in danger, but again if you've been shooting a while you should have some stockpiled already. Two of the things I do worry about are NFA items and legality of pistol braces. I personally like shooting short barreled AR's. At practical distances (under 200 yards) they don't give up anything to full size AR's and they are lighter, more maneuverable and quicker on target. But it's only a matter of time before some nitwit walks into a bar or a movie theater with and SBR under his raincoat, uses a gun with a silencer, or, god forbid, actually uses a machine gun to start shooting people.

    Right now, I think this stuff is off the liberal's radar. Hell, half my liberal friends think machine guns can't be owned by civilians, and the other half think AR's are machine guns.
