Anything can happen, guys. Prepare for the worst and the worst never happens but if the worst should happen you're prepared. You seem to want to depend on all those elite senators and representatives in DC to protect your rights. I wouldn't depend on them to do anything but what they perceive is in their own best self-interests.

The New Year is just around the corner and although the Senate still hasn't made a fiscal cliff deal, Senator Diane Feinstein already has parts of new gun control legislation ready to go. Two Sunday's ago on NBC's Meet the Press, Feinstein talked about giving President Obama a bill he can "lead on" and used the term assault weapon loosely.

Feinstein has posted a summary of what the legislation will cover, which inculdes a ban on semi-automatic handguns and shotguns in addition to rifles. The legislation also requires registration...
