It, like so many will be attached as a rider on some other piece of legislation that HAS to be passed in order to keep the country going....It like ObamaCare and The Fed Reserve and IRS will be passed in the dead of night.

I never depend on a politician to do anything right..and that way I am never disappointed. Most are fools and corrupt to their core....from the TOP down.

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...
