"As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons," Holder told reporters.

Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.

They scored a GSA contract for the UK government last March. I can't speak to whether or not the AICS platform is still imported in the US though.

Hmmm?

3/4" MOA at 300 yards? Now what would that be; 3/4" inch groups at 300 yards which would be 1/4 MOA, or 2.25" inch groups which would be 3/4 MOA?

Bah

Most stock remingtons out of the box are capable of those results if you do the job on your end. You need to practice more. The rifle will do much better than that. ;-)

I may just stick with my dpms LR 308. What could possibly take 3 grand in work?

Assault Weapons Ban 2008 bill

H.R. 6257 was introduced by Mark Kirk [R IL-10] on June 12, 2008 and seeks to re-instate the Assault Weapons Ban for a period of ten years, as well as to expand the list of banned weapons. The bill was also referred to the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security on 7/28/08. It has four co-sponsors (as of November 5, 2008) supporting it:

THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO PARTIES. NONE.

26 words, and some numbers...

So can you tell me what a "Republican Congress" is going to do in 2010?
Haven't they BOTH been proven to be working for the same agenda?

"have an impact in Mexico"

he says!

These a$$holes already think they run the world.
So, they're going to make oppressive US policy, so that they can affect Mexico, or so they think.

I think it's time to flush these turds.

Mexico

If you look at this from the " Problem, reaction, solution" perspective, you can see that Mexico is going to be used to implement some very draconian measures.
I'm with you Big T. Flush away....
I think the states declaring sovereignty under the tenth amendment, is one of the biggest things we can support right now.
