So if you don't like any federal policy you can leave the country and move somewhere else on earth.

People who have the right to life, have the right to defend that life with any weapon.
People who only have a government granted privilege to live, have to get permission to defend that life.

Just use A computer program to cross reference all databases such as Dr licenses and they WILL HAVE YOUR NAME and address.

As someone who works in the industry I would like you to explain in detail what government benefits and tax breaks are available to the firearm and ammunition industry that are not available to any other industry.

SBA loans? Nope, we're "too high risk" so we self-fund, find an angel investor, or go to a bank for a loan.

Government preferences and set-asides for minority/veteran/woman-owned/small-biz/disadvantaged-biz/etc? Not for contracts deemed vital to national security (which includes firearms and ammo).

Then there's the "annual compliance audit" benefit. Unlike the IRS which only wants to take your money, if you screw up badly enough the ATF will put you in federal prison.

Hopefully the Feds and the citizenry would see that such is not the answer. The ones who speak of war as if it would be some glorious thing, tend not to address the reality of what happens when the bullets fly. Or when they stop flying would be a better issue to look at.

Who will take care of the wounded? Battlefield wounds are no simple first aid kit matters. Without immediate and highly skilled care, most gunshot or frag wounds are a death sentence. A rebellious citizenry would not have medivac and forward combat surgical units standing by. A fighting force needs to be well supplied with food, ammunition, fuel and clothing as well. When talk of war gets tossed out, my thoughts don't tend to dwell so much on how well armed I am so much as can my loved ones and I survive. Can I see that my people are sheltered, fed, and can get proper medical care if someone is sick, wounded, or both? I can't stomach the thought of my son or my lady suffering from bullet wounds gone septic in an old mineshaft with maybe, if I'm lucky, only a few Tylenol at my disposal.

The civil war drummers and the anti 2A crowd, the latter that likes to crow about what the military can do to rebels, both need to examine the reality of what confrontation would be like. Both sides are guilty of looking only at the battle and not the aftermath.
"I can't stomach the thought of my son or my lady suffering from bullet wounds gone septic in an old mineshaft with maybe, if I'm lucky, only a few Tylenol at my disposal. "

We don't have any old mine shafts around here. Why are you fantasizing about holing up in a mine shaft?
I think you watch too much tv.

Such a law would be completely unconstitutional and as such, need not be followed.

When a real gun manufacturer (Colt, Glock, Berreta, H&K, Smith & Wesson, etc.) puts their name on that list I'll pay attention. Until then it's worthless.

Add Kimber into that list too. Being a woman I don't normally feel comfortable with hubbies 45's in my little hands... but he recently bought a Kimber and took me to the range to shoot it. It was SWEET!
