Link To President-Elect Obama's Own Written Policy.
I am stocking up now. Our biggest show of the season is this weekend. I have two purchases on my list. Four years from now many rights will be either taken away or close to it. Buy now, stockpile now and hide it all.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Nov 13, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ --
The following was released today by the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA):
In yet another example of hostility towards lawful firearm owners, the Obama transition team is weeding out applicants for White House positions who own firearms themselves, or who come from firearm-owning families.
Evidence of the Obama team's distaste for firearm owners may be found as Question 59 of a 63 item questionnaire administered by Obama staffers to all potential applicants for positions in the Obama White House. The question asks for sensitive information about firearms owned by the applicant and his/her family.
"Question 59 provides clear insight into how Obama and his people perceive firearm owners," said ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson. The questionnaire poses a number of questions asking the applicant to reveal any unethical activities, or embarrassing Internet chats, then wraps up by asking if anyone in the applicant's family owns a firearm. Obviously, Obama feels that owning a firearm is akin to talking dirty in Internet chat rooms. But that should come as no surprise as, while an Illinois State Senator, Obama voted for SB1195 - a provision of which called for gun owners to be registered in the same manner as sex offenders."
"Once again, we have to ask ourselves just what candidate Obama was talking about when he said he has 'respect' for the 2nd Amendment," commented Pearson. "If this latest assault on gun owners is considered a gesture of respect, then either Obama or myself is very confused."
A copy of the questionnaire may be found at
The ISRA is the state's leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. Founded in 1903, the ISRA has represented the interests of millions of law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.

I'm with you 100%. Stock up on ammunition too.
Just bought a custom Ruger 10/22 last night for $400.
Looks like this except the stock is blue and black and it has a smaller B-Square scope.
Spent my savings for that Remmy R-15 VTR. But I think I still have some time.
That should be a nice shooting gun.
My short list is ........
A new carry gun. I am looking at several and though I am not a avid Glock fan, they do make a .357 which can handle good round numbers and it a very practical gun.
I want to get another long gun and use it for cowboy shooting, so I am looking at the Henry .357 or .44
With that I am looking at the Ruger revolvers - 6 shooters.
And before summer I will be spending some more money with Bushmaster.
I have two long guns and two pistols I am going to sell, to make room for the new ones.
I carry a S&W 908 right now and though I am pleased with the gun, I want a little more punch and a few more rounds.
Enjoy that rifle, your going to get many happy hours in with it.
I hear ya. I picked up a Sig P220 last month and I'm going shopping again tomorrow. Been wanting to update the armory anyway. This is as good an excuse as any.
BTW ... when are they going to ban every tool in my pouch? I could easily assault someone with any of them, to include the pencil.
All of my stuff is on back order right know have to wait 3 more weeks
"Pill that erases memory"?
Did you end up getting anything new?
I bought my AR-15 last night. Not the R-15 I was looking at but a DPMS with a free-float hand guard and 16" bull barrel for $700.
You'll be happy to know that I bought it from a young Lance-Corporal and he was one squared away Marine. This rifle looks like brand new. He and his roommate were going to the University of Missouri this semester but were being deployed and would not be attending next semester. I was very impressed with them. Young guys, without any supervision (it was just the two of them) had just returned from PT and the LC I purchased the rifle from knew everything there was to know about it. He taught me more than one thing I didn't know.
