So based on the rash of recent shootings in the United States, does /pol/ feel that gun control is an inevitability? I am a gun owner, and don't want to give them up. But I feel that executive action may be taken. How do you think the majority of the firearm community will react to new legislation? What will happen to the price of gear and ammunition? Even since the Oregon shooting I have seen ammunition raise a couple of cents a round, and I feel that in the event of some sweeping gun reform, ammunition will become so expensive that most people will not even be able to partake in the sport.
I am admittedly not that well versed in the subject matter, being relatively new to guns in general, and would like to know what /pol/ thinks.

I don't think another AWB will ever happen but i still fight it when it comes around like every gun owner should do. How the fuck would they ban something millions of Americans already own? It's literately fucking retarded and there is no way they could actually pull it off. It's just mental masturbation that rallies libtards and makes them feel like they can make some sort of difference.
If Sandy Hoax couldn't even get an AWB then there is nothing in the near future that could.
The internet has connected firearm owners in a way that is incredible. Look at any anti-gun videos on YouTube and the dislikes will be astounding
The mainstream media can't push anti-gun propaganda like they used to
Your face when they outlaw all semi-auto handguns, and all semi-auto rifles that don't come stock with a five round fixed magazine.

So don't. If you're scared the Govt. is coming for you, either go in your backyard with some PVC and cosmoline, or have a boating accident. Don't talk about them and don't display them until they are needed.
Panic buying will happen, and prices will go higher, but it all comes in cycles. Ammo will keep being made and will eventually lower in costs, or if worse comes to absolute worst you can reload rounds or revert to a firearm with a simpler ammo source (musket, blunderbuss, etc.)
No. In fact we've been repealing laws en masse at the state level for some time now.
The only thing stopping federal laws from being repealed is that there's a gun grabbing democrat in the white house.
