View Full Version : SB249 - will it sell more lowers?

Maybe I'm the only one thinking this but won't the rush for new lowers basically contradict the point of S -249? If there was no AWB in California I bet far less AR-15s and AK-47s would have sold here... I heard at one point it was hard to get a lower in other states because they were all comming to CA heh!

It's all reverse psychology... Hmmm deep thought...

It already has. Most places are running out of stock and have a backlog.

As I understand it, which may well be wrong:

1. The current version of SB249 provides for the confiscation without reimbursement of such firearms. Why would I want to buy something with the reasonable expectation that it would or could soon be confiscated? Even if not, what would one do with them?

2. Some believe that if it passes, SB249 will eventually lead to the demise of the AWB in CA. If this is so, then there will no premium or shortage of guns or lowers. So why buy them now?

Either way, irrational panic buying will likely occur.
