    and "Gun owners who stockpile ammo and purchase AR-style rifles with high-capacity magazines following a mass killing" are two entirely different things.  A few RKBA folks on here are obfuscating again.

      Gun owners who collect as a hobby, which (along with sport shooting) encompasses most of the gun owners I know, feel obligated to make purchases they've been putting off.

      There is loose talk in places like this about making even semi-automatics of all varieties illegal, and Feinstein's bill would even include pistols and shotguns that have "one or more 'military characteristic,'" whatever the hell that means.

      A lot of guns, if people like you have your way, are about to become illegal. Purchasing them while still able to do so is a natural response to a prohibition.
