    tho they probably will not bother to read them, i doubt they have time to.

    i have not read every last thing and i see comments that there is some weird stuff in there that makes no sense.
    but the basics that i can see,
    all semi centrefire rifles will be banned. that includes all mssa and all sporting semi's, including the really old ones that don't have detachable mags.
    detachable magazine shotguns to be banned (theres only one that i know of).
    shotguns limited to 5 rounds.
    all centrefire and rimfire magazines to be limited to 10 rounds.
    semi rimfires with fixed mags over 10 rounds will be banned (because you can't fit a smaller mag).
    any magazine over 10 rounds is banned.
    They havent banned speed or stripper clips yet.
    Its amazing how Potatoes give us chips,fries and Vodka.

    Get your s*** together every other vegetable.

    just wait, this is only round one. there is more things planned for round two.
    the buy back is not on the table yet, so that may not even happen.
    Tweak it till it breaks

    The antigun lobby will push for everything they have dreamed of for years and in the currrent environment the politicians will go with it as they believe that is where the votes are. They are probably right.
    The fact that it all does not make a blind bit of difference to the ability of a determined nutcase to hurt a large number of people is beside the point.
