The long gun restrictions seem like nothing but an infringement on our 2nd A RKBA to protect domestic gun makers.

The HGN "points system" seems particularly irrational since it allows the importation and sale of the 9mm Glock G19, but bans the same sized, but less powerful .380 acp version based upon it (the G25)! Same deal with their subcompact versions: the 9mm G26 is allowed, but the same size .380 acp G28 is banned. :wacko:

1) Will we get repeal these by legislation in D.C. ("Go NRA!") or via the federal courts?

2) Roughly when???

Get China and Russia to make claims against the US at the WTO.

Better to slowly chip away at it than to take it all on at once. At current rates, I could see the "Sporting Purposes" part going away by 2025.

We need a pro gun president. Not some "I went duck hunting once" noodle spined camera posing fake tanned and botoxed Ivy League Phil Dunfee loser, but a genuine multiple AR owning, steak eating daily pistol carrying one of us.

Any proposal to allow foreign weapons into the country for sale will be met with equal parts of "they're costing American jobs" and "Gun sales support terrorists"

Step one is waiting on Dearth. After a win in Dearth, import restrictions are EXTREMELY vulnerable based on history.
