The fear people have about "mandated proper training" is that because it could end up being a byzantine mess of forms, stamps, classes, fees and time restrictions that it will become just that.
Yeah, it'll be used to frustrate otherwise legal purchase by qualified people:

Oh, you can't buy a gun until you pass the training course, and it's full, for the next 5 years, you can get on a waiting list, but that costs a $30 filing fee, you must pay and re-file every year of the wait or you're off the list, it's nonrefundable if you change your mind or move out of state, and the training center is 140 miles away, and the class is broken up into 4 sub sections, scattered over a week, and if you miss one due to illness/work/whatever, sorry, gotta reapply.... if you move or change address in-state at any time during the year, you must reapply. If your marital status changes, you must reapply. If you are unemployed for more than 30 days, you must reapply, The following list of petty misdemeanors including speeding, parking tickets or disorderly conduct immediately and permanently disqualifies you. It will only qualify you for one specific make and model of gun, you must retrain for every gun you wish to get licensed for. You may not train for different types concurrently. No, you aren't exempt if you are a former service member or LEO with training, non-state training does not count. And if you pass it all, that just qualifies you for a psychological fitness evaluation, which is performed at only one location, 150 miles in the other direction, it costs $500 unless your insurance covers it, and it won't... etc etc etc

This is why the 2A says "SHALL NOT" , otherwise this kind of stuff would've been ramrodded through years ago.
It'll be just like Jim Crow era Literacy Tests. A way for them to approve or revoke a citizen's rights based on the whims of the tester.

People who don't shoot guns, aren't very familiar with guns outside of vidya and movies, have trouble interpreting the phrase "shall not be infringed," don't have an understanding of when a firearm is ok legally to use on bad people, bitch about statistically irrelevant mass shootings, and are just in general ignorant about these things should stop talking about them like they have the relevant knowledge to do so with anything approaching an authoritative voice. Also quit trying to fuck us with more unconstitutional legislation.

Go do other things, like suck my cock, or move to California and never come back.

For the discerning European, I present this image for your contemplation:

He's European.
Tbh, when some "European" gets into a discussion about the 2nd, it's almost everytime the same political corner from which they crawl out.
Nothing really new to be honest.
Most of Europe except the usual permanently offended champagne socialists simply doesn't give a shit about anything US gun related. You have the 2nd, fine, go for it and defend it! But why should I as a German citizen even care and to be fucking frank who am I to judge?
Albeit, I would buy a M1 or M1A or maybe even an M1 Carbine, sorry pals, I'm not into that modern stuff. I'll get my coat.

That is more enlightened then most germans I encounter online. They want to look down at Americans as their inferiors in all things

True. The only info germans can get about the USA (if they don't travel there or have other business' to do with americans) is the german media and the german msm media is a bastion of anti-americanism. German MSM is highly infiltrated by leftists and it shows every fucking day.

>>perpetuate gun control rhetoric
>increased firearm demand

>>destroy supply
>increased valuation of firearms
>increased economies of scale by subsidizing manufacturers

This guy runs a retail chain and doesn't understand basic economics. Returning the products would have actually been more effective in harming manufacturers. Their agreement with manufacturers probably didn't allow for returns like that. What an idiot.

I think they didn't really destroy them. It's just like with drugs seized by the government. They only say that they "destroy" it, but we know that they sell that shit back to the black market for a pretty penny.

tl;dr America is full of houses where mkultra operatives hoard thousands of rifles and tonnes of ammo

Or Academy. Those are starting to show up near me, and we got a Cabella’s in the last few years.
I tend to buy Sportsman's Guide because the 4 pay plan and their insane prices makes gun purchases much easier to make.

I think some are still butthurt about us kicking the shit out of them twice and set up our bases there to protect them from the Russians.

Another billionaire who thinks that I shouldn't have access to modern firearms? Cool....

Literally destroying company property because a poor might get a rifle is going above and beyond though.

Now that you mention it, he probably sold them all to a drug cartel, Fast & Furious style, and then wrote down the destruction as a loss.

At last, some good news I don't ironically make fun at. Americans are so obtuse when it comes to gun control. All I hear from the gun crowd is "Duhhr... It's not the tool. You can kill someone with a hammer or a baseball bat, and they are legal. The AR is no different."

My goodness, an AR is a tool that can kill 40 people in less than 2 minutes (christchurch) and is easily hideable. You basically chose to endager the population so big gun corporations can make a killing. Not only in guns but all it's accesories Burgers love. Especially if they all come in XXXL.

At this point, Burger's are so idiotic when it comes to gun logic that I hope the wall gets done soon. It will protect all of Central and South America from you gun tooting exceptional individuals.

Oh, by the way, have fun watching your back in the movies every time an edgy, dystopic flick comes out. Get the latest chest plates. Support your local bussiness.
Shut up Europoor. Have fun getting cucked by Ahmed and Hassan.

You just reminded me to grab a CMP M1 before they sell out. I love my country, Government selling premo gats for $750. I can't wait until we throw out the leftists and M16/M4 lowers and SAWs start getting CMP'd :optimistic:
Unless you really want an M1 specifically for historical/collecting reasons, you can get a very nice Yugoslavian Zastava M.59/66 SKS at any gun show for around $200 less, and I'd recommend doing that instead. 7.62x39 costs around 1/4th as much per round as 30-06, you get two more rounds in the magazine, and in my totally subjective opinion it's a much nicer gun to shoot.

Since you're a CMP member though, you absolutely should be keeping an eye on the CMP auction site for the M1 Carbines of various makes/models that periodically pop up on there, as it's sometimes possible to snag one for well below market price and they are fantastic little guns.

I'm buying an M1 because I'm a Red-Blooded God-Dammed American. I'm well aware of mega cheap SKSes, and for that matter $300 sale poverty PSAs. I was pointing out that you can get a historical relic of your nation's warfighting legacy for very reasonable prices. Brand new modern M1As cost more money than an issued Rack/Service grade dyed-in-the-wool GI M1. The CMP auction is pretty much exclusively for extremely well finished/preserved guns.

I'd like to see Krauts try to buy STGs for $1000 from their own government.
