Perfect timing (sarcastic)...

I wrote letters to my senators regarding the AWB due to expire next September and mailed them about a week and a half ago.

I wrote one to the DemocRAT, and two to Gordon Smith (R). The next day, I read in the paper that Gordon Smith's son just committed suicide. It didn't list the cause of death (and I still don't know what it was) but I hope to God that he didn't use a gun.

I put off writing these letters for a while and when I finally do it, look what happens.

Speaking of the AWB, this issue hasn't really been on the front burner lately. Has anyone heard any recent predictions on what will happen??

My best guess is that it won't pass the House. W has said he will sign it IF it gets to his desk.

The conspiricy theorist in me says that next summer we will see A LOT of gun violence, shooting sprees, etc OR heavy coverage of all gun related crimes in order to scare the sheeple into pressuring lawmakers to pass a MORE RESTRICTIVE version.

If you look around the net, you will see more "hi caps" and preban weapons for sale at prices lower than what we have recently seen. I think it's a good sign that people don't want to be stuck with this stuff that they hoarded, hoping to cash in.

HOPEFULLY the days of $20 standard capacity mags will be back in 355 days.

That is exactly why I quit buying accessories at shows last year. I also decided to temporarily forego purchasing one of those "evil black guns". Might be some good deals to be had in October....
