Well, that didn't take long.

Although, to be honest, I expected it in the first "100 hours".

Yeah, I'm talking about the AWB renewal.

Most notable to me... my inherited M1 Carbine makes the list this go-round, and an SKS is ok, unless it's crippled by having a removable magazine. Kinda tells ya how much of an idiot this Rep from NYFC is, huh?

And then there's this:

"A semiautomatic rifle or shotgun originally designed for military or law enforcement use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm, that is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, as determined by the Attorney General. In making the determination, there shall be a rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any Federal law enforcement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and a firearm shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event"

In other words, F Troop (aka the ATF) can make any semi-auto rifle illegal by buying one. Just lovely.

I think I'll be looking closely into acquiring a few new rifles soon, along with plenty of mags for them. Just on general principles.
