I curious as to the time frame necessary to get a ban through and if it could go into effect immediately or is there a necessary delay?

I'm pretty sure most federal laws go into effect right after they are signed. Obama wants recommendations in January but that is only from the commission. It still has to be proposed in congress and passed by both houses.

The black helicopters could show up at any time.

Speculation is the only answer you'll get at this point.

OP, you seem intent on presurrendering.

Something new could be introduced on January 3, 2013.

If such a thing gets through both Senate and House, goes to the President, and becomes law with his signature.

My expectation is it will not get through the House.
