    I thought of that after I posted. But there would be a brief time frame to sell all the SKS to Mike from Canmore

    This is probably a good idea...

    "..."their isn't..." No THERE isn't. No THEY'RE not. No THERE aren't.
    "...joined the NRA..." Waste of money. The NRA doesn't care about anything that happens here.
    "...hastily written, feel good, knee-jerk legislation..." Does one thing and one thing only. Makes it look like the assorted politicians are doing something. Our laws since 1978 are exactly that. Totally ineffective, but it looked good to non-shooters.
    Any attempt at banning semi-autos would likely be declared unconstitutional Stateside.

    You're absolutely right; the NRA doesn't give two hoots about us. But if there was sweeping change in the US, there would be sweeping change here, too.

    Someone has to lead the fight against the ban to challenge it constitutionality.

    I don't particularly care for the NRA or La Pierre, but they are the lobby group with the power there.

    I never said I joined the NRA in the hope they would do anything for Canada. I said I joined the NRA to help the US avoid giving in to gun control. If semis are banned in the US then Canada will follow suit. There is no way a Liberal government would ever allow Canada to have less strict gun laws than the US.

    Currently, with a 5 to 4 balance of conservatives to liberals on the SCOTUS bench. But that dynamic was very close to being 4 to 5. There will be more vacancies over the next several years. If Trump doesn't get another term and/or both houses lose their Rep majorities say bye bye to the 2A effectively.

    You think any change to U.S. law would have an effect here? You're dream'n, fella

    And just what has the U.S. constitution have to do with Canada? What is the flavor of that Kool-Ade?

    Nothing directly, much influentially. How many times have you heard the CGC and even some in the Liberal Party itself call for "australian gun control". You think if the US banned semis there wouldn't be calls for "US gun control" in Canada?! Really!?

    Uh huh. And Trump won't get elected, either.

    The thing is, if there was no opposition to banning anything, it would get banned; so support the opposition so the fertilizer doesn't hit the ventilator.
