So does the ban sunset on Monday or after monday?
Monday at Midnight
2 days 7 hours
12:01am Monday morning.
at 12:01 am, on the 14th, you can do the deed.
or, i could be wrong.
LOL so which one is it?
I've been hearing both too
Does it really even matter? Maybe it's because I have been around to many guns to get over excited about things? I'm glad the ban is going away and all, but it's not like it won't still be gone come 8:00 AM the 14th.
Oh well maybe it's just me.
12:01 on the 13th damnit.
It went into effect on the 13th, so the 13th counted 10 years ago. This means that the 13th DOESN'T count on the 10th year. Right?
so I'm assuming there's going to be a drop in AR prices following this? Or would it just be in the pre-ban versions?
I wouldn't think so right away. People are going to order new guns with all the extra shit and will keep prices at the same rate or higher. Pre-bans will lose their value though.
I'm going to assume, pre-ban prices will drop, and what were once considered "post-ban" rifles will drop slightly too.
there will be no "pre-" or "postban" rifles, except in states that still have an "assault weapons" ban. some of those states are so strict that you can't own one unless it was registered before their ban went into effect (CA), but others will allow them so long as they were MADE before the ban went into effect. in PRK, you can't own an AR unless it was registered before the ban, even if it were made before the ban. this keeps people from bringing in more AR's that were made back before the ban.
and prices won't drop for anything AR related, except NIW mags. you guys are forgetting that when the ban was going on, you could've bought recievers, just like you can now. you could've bought uppers with bayonet lugs and flash hiders, just like now. bushmaster has offered its uppers in those configurations the whole 10 years. it actually costs them less to make a barrel in "preban" configuration because they don't have to bother with the machining and parkerizing necessary to remove the bayonet lug.
