We can all say that the new proposed ban doesn't change anything or that it will never pass but my attempts to purchase reloading supplies tell a different story. Actions speak louder than words and the back ordered powder primers and bullets tell me that most people feel the same as I do.

We all need to voice our opinions and this petition although basic is one avenue we can use. You need to sign up to a government website and I was not too cool with that but then again they already have most of our information anyway.

Anyway please take a minute to sign this and pass it around to other places you may frequent!

It sounds like you didn't reload four years ago when Obama was elected the first time. It was the same problem then without any proposed gun bans. We bring it on our selves with panic buying.

:yeahthat: Twas the same way in '08. It should level out in about a year or so.

Panic buying and hoarding are what has run the prices on reloading supplies through the roof. Same for the scary "assault weapons" but that's a different forum. No one to blame but ourselves.

E-petitions are a great facade for the government to compile lists for questionable purpose, these days I wouldn't jump on this type of petition; with my real name anyway.

If you've filled out a form for a NICS check, guess what, you're on their list, and they know exactly what you have.

You're already on EVERY list they have. They've been compiling data for at least 2 decades.

Doesn't really matter if you fill out a petition.

They know who comes to this forum too, catalog what you've said, created dossiers and profiles of all members. They know exactly who you are, and where you are.

It was the same way in '94. Primers went to $12.50 per 1K and powder jumped to $14/$15 per pound.

The difference between now and then is the run of shootings and one sided media coverage. I was surprised tonight to see that CBS aired a bit about gun sales in California jumping and gun related crimes dropping but for the most part the media is blasting the anti gun message and fueling the fire.

I don't think much will come of it but I would rather make my opinion known rather than sit back and wait for the best. They already know most of what I own so it really doesn't matter to me if they know that I intend to keep it.

That's why I spend my time searching for random guns and gun-related parts. A LOT. So hopefully my dossier will say "has a 10/22". Not so sure about the M1A, Lahati and those 2 20mm Solothurns."

Actually, all they know is that you purchased a firearm or firearms. They don't know anything without going to the dealer and looking in his bound book.

I've stood right there when they make the call, many times. They tell them the MAKE, MODEL and serial number on the gun.

They have ALL of it.

Perhaps not the serial number, can't recall, but the make and model for SURE.

New York is a NON-participating (meaning they don't do the check, the FBI does) state, so the FBI NICs system is what is used here.

I am 100 percent positive that they ask for make and model.

Don't tell me they're not compiling data. They know.
