They already make them for LEOs, all they'd have to do is put in the old dies that don't stamp "Law Enforcement" on them, and ramp up production. They could probably flood the market in a couple of months.zombo said:

Do you mean "more important" to the anti's specifically, or just more important in the overall congressional schedule/agenda...?
I don't see how anything could be more important than this to the anti's, right now at least.
Hate to sound so negative; I just don't have a lot of faith in "the right thing" somehow happening with the crowd we've now got in office. This is one of those occasions where I would be glad to be shown wrong.
Regarding the "ramping-up" production question... If the law sunsets and the pre-ban/post-ban issue is moot, I wonder if that means all the "LE-only" mags (and "LE-only" [pre-ban configuration] weapons made during the ban) would then be unrestricted? That would be good for several reasons. Quicker availability obviously, and (my favorite) the 'mixing-up' or de-segregating of the LE-only gear from citizen-legal gear. That would be a very good thing, imo.
Picture all these currently LE-only AR's, hi-cap mags, etc, being suddenly available to the public... Sales would skyrocket, increasing demand would drag behind it an increasing supply, more private citizens would be armed with decent defensive weapons, and there would be no automatic "guilty" presumption (as there now is) for a citizen owning something stamped "Restricted - LE-govt only". That's assuming all the "ban-era" LE-only stuff is no longer restricted...
Will keep my fingers crossed; but something shooting thru in those last six days would not surprise me in the least. (Again, would welcome being wrong.)
They probably already have enough to flood the market. The gun companies, well, some of them, have most likely been making hi-cap mags in small quantities. After ten years, little numbers turn into big numbers.zombo said:
High caps? Probably not immediately. BUT, I bet Full cap magazines will be available ASAPsince those are already being made for alw enforcement only!zombo said:
And that, my friends, is the precise answer to the question. It's over. No way on earth that it will be renewed. Why? Because it will never come up in the House. Why again? Because Bush set it up that way!Hard Rock said:if it doesn't get renewed in the next 7 days, it's done...
