    President Obama has put more semi-automatic rifles and handguns into circulation, and more ammunition on the street, than an alien space invasion--the old record being held by President Clinton--and it was done knowing his rhetoric would NEVER result in signed legislation. The House was never going to consider anything pertaining to gun control even IF it made it out of the Senate. I'm still trying to figure out why the President did this.

    Stag Arms has a 70,000 AR-15 backlog of sales right now, and every AR-15 manufacturer in the country has a back-order of at least a year.

    I'm afraid that before it's over the Obama Administration will have TRIPLED the number of assault weapons and high capacity magazines in circulation.

      Idiots living with low information, high levels of fear and interesting "hobbies" have caused a spike in assault weapons and high capacity magazines.

      You can't blame Obama for a nation full of idiots. The USA did that all on its own.

      But, you know, "The liberties of innocent Americans!" And all that...

        a hole: STOP! Assault weapons and hi-cap magazines are no longer flying off the shelves, because the shelves are completely bare. Stag Arms has a 70,000 AR-15 backlog of sales right now, and every AR-15 manufacturer in the country has a back-order of at least a year.

        70,000 new AR-15's from one manufacturer alone, and it's not slowing down at all. We talking hundreds of thousands of new assault weapons in circulation that never would have been there. It's crazy. And the Democratic elites just keep pushing the issue. Note: there will be no signed legislation coming out of this debate, but hundreds of thousands of new assault weapons and semi-auto pistols.

        I don't get it.
