I typed a response on the gun issue and then deleted it. It occurred to me that this thread could get political, and we don't want that to happen.

It's a shame when you can't speak your mind on your own site. Sorry John had to do it.

Very scary law pass indeed, so how does the value of the weapon get assessed when you turn it in? Or... are you out what you paid in full?

It's hard to imagine anyone winning anything from these senseless hate crimes.

the talk of a buy back of the now illegal guns is likley to be in the 3/4 of a billion dollar range according to some experts, the general consensus is that gun owners will replace their "illegal" guns with legal guns, gangs and crims with illegal guns will keep them and a massive black market will appear in semi autos, gun shop owners with now "illegal" stock cant sell them and possibly wont be able to export them and wont get compensation from the government

That's a lot of money for a country the size of yours, Jim. At last count I think you have around six million souls in population?

i think the population is just under 5 million, there are lots of hunters here and many of them own several firearms, plus they are expensive here as well.

Well, a "buyback" preassumes that they owened the guns in the first place....which I doubt was the case. Nothing more than a "gun grab."
