    Good to see a group challenging some dumb laws when it comes to gun control.....https://www.foxnews.com/us/connectic...ndment-lawsuit

    HARTFORD, Conn. — Gun rights supporters are suing Connecticut officials over part of a 2013 state gun control law passed after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, saying it unconstitutionally bans people from loading more than 10 rounds of ammunition into their firearms.

    The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court cites the Second Amendment right to bear arms and the ability of people to better defend themselves with more bullets in their guns.

    “Law abiding gun owners in Connecticut are left more susceptible to harm or death by being limited in their means of self-defense,” Holly Sullivan, president of the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, said in a written statement. “Criminals who are intent on doing harm will not follow this same law.”


    Lawmakers who pass such laws, do not understand how easy and quickly, a shooter can swap out a magazine. The Parkland, Florida, school shooter, purposely only used 10 round magazines because they where easier to fit in his backpack and thus to hide.

    Well then get your shit together.
    Get it all together. And put it in a backpack. All your shit. So it’s together. And if you gotta take it somewhere, take it somewhere, you know, take it to the shit store and sell it, or put it in a shit museum, I don’t care what you do, you just gotta get it together.
    Get your shit together

    I had shot the last of my cheap 5.56 a bit ago, and just didn't get around to a new bulk order. Talking about it last week, look online, everyone is cleaned out completely.
    One of the sites listed the jump in sales as around 300% increase, but I think it just topped out at that because they ran out of stuff.

    they went this route because of what was used in sandy hook, why would you be comparing it to what happened in Florida 5 years later in a different state with different laws?

    so wait they/you are saying their self-defense is being limited....then say how easy it is to swap out a magazine? So if its that easy what's the problem?
    Which is it?

    Of course, it does bear mentioning that CT has/ had a AWB, and that the Bushmaster was made in compliance with that law. They didn't have a magazine ban at the time.

    As for the ease of changing magazines, as I've said before, most people that carry a gun only carry the one magazine or maybe one extra. Mass shooters as your example above shows, carry many more magazines than that. Limitations on individual magazine capacity hinders the law abiding more than the criminals in this case.

    That is usually what a lot of gun control laws end up doing. Making it harder for lawful citizens to defend themselves.

    Yah I have been seeing a lot of people going out an buying firearms. It is amazing that when things start to go south more people FINALLY understand the significance and importance of 2A
    I am not pro Flight, I am pro a better more engaging game. I just took the pro flight stance cause I knew Blizzard couldn't deliver. Looks like I was right

    PM me? lol.

    I've made a few moves, but a couple of them require both common carrier to remain in service and both the selling and local transferring business to still be operating when they might arrive. It's nice to have my first shotty though (Mossberg 500, basic as grits). I'm kinda multi-tasking prep with fun and one of the items on order is a Nomad Defense frame that's going to be part of a non-Glock Gen 4 19 when it's all in hand.

    I actually just got around to finishing my Mossberg 590a1 last month. I'm not a big shotgun fan, but decided I needed a shotgun with a bayonet lug, because reasons. So then I of course short barreled it, going to 14" barrel and short stock so it'd fit in a JIC tube I got from a previous thing. I haven't even taken a picture of it yet...

    Otherwise I'm pretty set on guns, since I lost out on a Colt SAA I was going to buy as a present to myself for my birthday. Waiting on a SIG M18, but that might be a while.

    I didn't do much other than get off my butt and get more than a box of 9 to keep in the house. I own three different chamberings at least until the scout arrives, and a fair amount of each. I'm tempted to add a wheelgun but I think at this point it's just cuz I'm on a roll.

    I have plenty of ammo and all the firearms I need. But if I get the stimulus check, I will put it back into the economy by buying something I do not really need. lol! Not sure yet what. If it gets approved by congress, it will be a while before we get it.

    i've been well stocked up on ammo and guns for a while im just wondering how many of those who push for gun control were out at sporting good shops and gun stores panic buying what they hate

    All the local Gun stores near me in central VA say that the cast majority of the gun sales are for first time gun owners . Ammo like 9mm is getting scarce . Can't find any .357 JHP any where . Suddenly millions of Americans now realize what the 2A is about

    Years ago when I got an M1 Garand, they had a deal on surplus greek 30-06 on clips, and I rarely shoot them. So if the world is sufficiently ending that I use up the 223/ 308 that I have and need to break out the 30-06, I'll probably also be strapping the bayonet on because the zombies have won.

    Probably not many since there is no need to panic because even in countries that have it way worse than we do, there is no panic, no riots.....no need to all of a sudden buy guns.

    Like many other products the supply chain for most industries are no longer able to handle any real additional surge in demand because these companies are running the most profit out of the business they can. That includes keeping a tight control on inventory and storage cost.

    It will most likely be the same spike we saw during the Obama fear stages and when people thought Hillary was going to be elected. We will find out later the vast vast majority of purchases were by people who already owned.
