So I never did see anyone take my bet of a steak dinner on the over/under for number of communities enacting an AWB before the window closes. I set the line at 7, and I am most certainly taking the under. Any takers?

 

As I have said all along, if these municipalities had the support to pass an AWB, what's been stopping them until now? Now, some of the nuts have put their proposals forward, only to discuss over that they don't have the support to get it done. Shocking.

This is why we needed total preemption.

 

Now some jurisdictions may pass AWBs, others may not, some may pass transportation regs, etc. Now when I drive to the range in Wisconsin that I use to shoot my ARs, I'll have to check the laws of every town I pass through. Lovely.

 

Only if you plan on complying with the harassment of petty bureaucrats and their impotent little city councils. We've fine tradition of civil disobedience in this country, if the antis keep pushing their luck they're liable to find out what it looks like when you turn a community of people built on individualism and small arms into reflexive scofflaws. The gun culture is surprisingly law abiding, I'm almost eager to see what we look like when we've got enough precedent under our belts to get defiant.

I like NY strip, medium...preferably with some kind of a horseradish crust.

Nearly all of the lawful gun owners I have ever known, have been amongst the most honest and great to work with people.

 

I too would be intrigued by the looks of defiance today. If the politicians/antis don't read up on their history, they may get re-educated on what happened in 1775.

I wish they were scrambling for something else - they're killing me trying to keep up with all of them.

And they know that, it's all by design. You guys are doing good though and we're going to cost all these little towns a fortune when we sue their butts off and win.

Great update Molly but I think you mistitled the thread. It should read, Smackdown on attempts to ban...

Not a total smack down, two bans did pass.

I'm going to start transporting my AR's broken down in addition to being locked. Because like you, when driving to WI ranges, I drive straight through highland park. Maybe I will do the same with my pistols just in case.

Hopefully, what is happening is the ones that are deferring are looking for someone else to jump into the pool first.

Well, two jumped in. Now what? We have to PACK the next meetings and ramp up our letter writing.

Again. Once 183 is law, it preempts transportation of ALL FIREARMS for FOID holders.

A) It's not law yet. B) I'd have to prove in court after being arrested and weapons confiscated that I am in the right, and even when I win I will be out thousands of dollars in legal fees. C) IF quinn signs.
