    Have anti gun liberals boosted gun sales and put more guns into the hands of americans because of gun ban threats? If this is true do gun ban laws really work?

    Do you expect criminals to follow these laws? Didn't think so. I mean they are called criminals for a reason. All these laws do is make it harder on law abiding gun owners. to answer your main question, go into your local gun store and ask how many AR-15's they have in stock and also take a look at the ammo shelf. That's actually if you live America. But yes, millions of back ground checks were conducted in November/December for firearm sales.

      The exciting thing is that we now have more gun owners than ever and they will want to hold on to their guns the same as the veteran gun owners.

      But no, gun bans will never do anything to reduce the criminal element or crazies going berserk.

      But we have to beware of a central registry and gun confiscation.

        Registry is a prelude to confiscation.
        As long as anti gunners breathe, they will threaten the 2A and seek to invalidate it. It's just "one uv them thangs"! It's up to the NRA, GOA and gun owning Americans to remain ever vigilant in battling those threats.
        The buying "splurge" is mostly an "investment" thing. If a "ban" were to be implemented, $1500 AR's will be worth twice that.

          Registry is prelude to confiscation is fallacy. Confiscation of all firearms didn't happen after the restriction legislation in 1934, 1968 (?), or 1994.
          While there'll most likely always be the few who want a world free of firearm, in reality that'll never happen, you can't un-ring a bell.
          What has spurred the buying frenzy of late is fear.
          Anybody catch LaPierre's latest where he warns of the apocalypse? Hurricanes, Floods, The collapse of America, and Latino gangs marauding freely across our nation! We gotta arm ourselves!
          Fear has always been a great motivator.

              I live and was born in NY. For a moment let's shelve the AR subject. No OG ever tucked an assault weapon in their belt. If fire power was needed a shotgun was employed thus avoiding a federal charge. Let us put our attention to handguns. These have been strictly licensed since way before my 63 years. They are responsible for the vast majority of crime in NY proper. If you have a domestic violence or DWI the local Law Enforcement will come and temporarily take them till cooler heads prevail. Just yesterday a program was featured on Chanel 13. The more artistic, educationally enlightened Chanel in NYC. They had a group from Crown Heights. The Wild Bunch would skirt this neighborhood. They did not blame Assault Weapons for the multiple monthly murders rather handguns. Something that has been regulated for DECADES. Now let me get to the illegal market. In my own experience a pistol was always available if you knew a guy who knows a guy or for that any number of local bartenders. These have been my own experiences over my adult life. If you need any further credentials Google Saint John's Cemetery/the Mob. Both my wife's Grandparents and my Parents are buried there. Along with News and Movie worthy Mobsters. A few of which I met; one who lived next to my future wife. In the group there was a point of a little Catholic humor denoted by an Astrix. One was denied burial in sacred ground not because he killed 40 people but because he had divorced his wife. This is my read on guns, crime and regulation.

                I think bans don't work for the reasons stated above; criminals by definition do not follow laws. I'm originally from Detroit the former murder capital (where the cost of living is going up and the chance of living is going down) and I agree with Carl. The modern sporting rifles were never a problem the vast majority of those murders were with hand guns. We used to call those hand guns "Saturday Night Specials"!

                  I knew a nice lady in Brooklyn who wanted to buy a handgun for home defense.
                  She said that the police had told her she could not get a permit to buy one.
                  Then she whispered that she got one anyway.
                  She said, "I have a friend who knows someone."
                  That's how gun control works in the real world.
                  There is a scene in the movie, "Taxi Driver" where Robert DeNiro buys an assortment of guns out of a suitcase in a hotel room. He "knew someone."

                    99; That part in the movie made me wax nostalgic on the prices. Imagine a S&W 29 for $200 annd a free holster.

                      I've always thought that besides the 2nd amendment another compelling argument against gun control was the sheer number of legally owned firearms that are not used in shootings and murders and the sheer number of legal gun owners that are not committing gun crimes. Also the gun involved death figures include suicides which is a large percentage of those deaths.

                        I have not walked past a gun counter where there were not multiple active sales going on in months. The hype is driving some serious windfalls for the guns and ammo industries. Hopefully more people will get back into firearms and shooting and not just let them gather dust.
                        I actually walked past a pile of .223 ammo that did not have a feeding frenzy going on today. Maybe things are calming down a bit.
                        No they ain't going to ban guns and it sure is tough to ban something when millions of untraceable units already exist. There will be some major arm waving but politicians know where the butter comes from and media types get paid to dispense inflamatory rhetoric on both sides. So just take a deep breath, let half of it out and sqeeeeeze.

                          Hoski, you go ahead and register all your guns, if they pass universal registration! And see if you keep them! Chuckles, I sure hope that it is slowing down. I have had to quit 'plinking' because it is impossible to find 22LR shells! Not to mention trying to find 44 mags! It may be tough to ban something that a lot of people have, but..... 1> Pass a mandatory registration of all guns. 2> Make it illegal to own an 'unregistered' firearm. 3> Make stiff the penalties for being found in the possession of an 'unregistered' firearm, including confiscation. 4> Pass a law that all ammunition bought must be registered. Run this against 'legal' owners & go after those who are not registered...... See where I'm going with this?!!! Wake up unbelievers! The greatest/longest journey begins with one small step!!

                            So Safado.... Are you saying that all of our handguns need to be taken away? Not likely! Please qualify your comment by saying that most of those murders were committed with 'illegal' handguns! I have carried for over five years and pray to the Lord that I never have to use it! But I will if I have to because my & my family's safety ranks high on my list! I will not give up my guns because some bleeding heart liberal idiot thinks I will be safer!

                              hunterjack13, I just don't see it happening. The Supreme Court has struck down several gun bans. While I realize the current climate created by recent shootings is a boon to anti-gun lobbyists I just don't believe the political will to pass gun bans exists. I also believe that pro-gun groups are taking equal advantage to play on fears of second amendment erosion. A steady and steadfast resistance free of "cold dead fingers" rhetoric will win the day.

                                On 7/19, Milldawg mentioned he'd ordered a laser sight for his wife's Ruger LCP 380 and they were on sale at MidwayUSA. Well, that inspired me to order...

                                Good question. The old style Ruger LC9 has a very long trigger pull that's similar to that of a double action only revolver. I think it would be unlikely...
