What Should You Be Stocking Up On? – It seems like there is always an excuse to try and curtail your gun rights, and while there are some victories being scored like Constitutional carry it seems like even more are being struck down. For example, just this last few weeks HK USP handguns, a fantastic carry gun, was removed from the California roster for allowable handguns.
For those of you in free states …
There is a roster of what firearms are deemed “permissible” in the state of California, with any new ones being severely restricted unless they meet insane protocols, like microstamping the round fired from that gun….yeah that’s crazy. The other part is the company has to pay to make sure they are in good standing, which to me screams illegal, but unfortunately, laws are laws. This is why you can get a Gen 3 Glock but not a Gen 4….despite the differences between them being negligible.
As I am sure will be pushed, another call for gun control will come from the most recent shooting. That said, look at any of the large shootings and many of them are followed by gun control calls, even if the firearms used were not the ones being banned. Look no further than the Aurora Movie theater shooting, where most of the casualties were due to a shotgun, not the AR that jammed…let’s not discuss how it was in a gun-free zone like many are. Here are a few things I would look at stocking up on before the supply gets questionable or non-existent.
For years “standard capacity” magazines have been labeled as so much more dangerous because they can go on forever. California has a 10-round limit, even in handguns. Colorado, once a proud mountain state has unfortunately followed and limited its capacity to 20 rounds. We all know that criminals will only break the laws like robbery, rape, and murder, but it will absolutely stop them with that law.
If you can’t ban the gun, you go after the components that make it work. Everything from binary triggers, forward grips, and adjustable stocks can all be targeted. I foresee that the next ones to be hit heavily will be pistol brace kits, shorter barrels, and anything that makes it “tactical”. Is that clear as mud, yeah.
Larger Caliber/Big Bore Ammunition:
If you think about the natural progression of tyranny, it is easy to assume that those who are in power are trying to stay in power, and larger caliber weapons such as the 50BMG, are likely to not be allowed for civilian possession.
Yet another thing that people in power don’t like tends to be those who are able to protect themselves from being able to protect themselves. Like the body armor that we have for sale here, this could be banned or outlawed for civilian possession.
These are my top pics for what I would suggest to someone who has their basic stuff covered to look at, and as always if you are looking for a could-be-banned firearm, look to us so you can holster it before those accessories are gone as well.
