While we are stuck w/ Chicago and a herd of ignorant, anti-gun politicians, we are also blessed w/ some sh!t-hot lobbyists from the NRA and ISRA who were able to get the word out about the attempts to push their bills days before it happened, giving us a chance to mobilize by the tens of thousands and beat them back for the time being. At least at the state level. Federally we have the Lightbringer.
NY was not so lucky. Their plutocrats filed and jammed through a vote effectively banning all semi-auto firearms w/in hours. I'm sure that's what the Founding Fathers intended for this nation.
If you are a firearm owner, instead of panic buying one more 20rnd magazine at $75, use that
money to sign up and donate to the groups so they can keep affording to
send lobbyists and lawyers out to do battle. Send an email. Sign up family members.
If you haven't bothered to take the time to make phone calls to your local, state, and federal legislators, written the paper or joined the NRA, SAF and/or your local/state firearm rights organizations, do NOT come out bitching AFTER the SHTF and they manage to pass something stupid.
Just sayin'. We've fought it back here so far but if you think it's over, go ahead and just sell your toys now. They obviously don't mean that much.
