Another step to take guns.  A military shotgun is nothing more than a standard shotgun with different grips, sight, mag extension (which you can get at brownells) or a heat shield.  Many are Mossberg 500's or a Benelli.  Same action civ or mil.  This makes me think that this is a first step to prevent us from having "military" type weapons and then make to move to later include AR platform guns.  I know, a Duh statement everyone knows.

Guess I better go get my military style shotgun soon. I would say that the tactical shotguns make much better home defense shotguns than the unweildy sport guns. Hopefully reasoning and the courts recent decissions will keep that rule from ever happening. Although obama will push it all the way.

It says IMPORTING, will that affect USA manufacturing here. I know it could open a door to that in the future. That would suck for people like me in a apartment. I have a apt. intown and keep a shotgun for home defense I have pistols but like the shotgun better. I dont want bullets going threw walls or ceilings. I like my neighbors! Shotguns for home defense are much better for apt. dwellers like me.

No, they don't.

Not immediately, but it certainly will, if they can push this through.  These people have a proven history of taking any opening they find in subverting your Constitutional rights to further disregard the requirements of the law whenever they want.
They don't care that defending your home with a shotgun is safer for everyone around you than a pistol.  They'll do whatever they can to paint you as an evil, baby eating serial killer if they think they can get away with it.Soap Box  But I don't have an opinion.Wink

A well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.    Correct me if you see this differently, but this language guarantees our God given right to have military weapons. The "sporting purposes" test of the gun control act of 1968 is clearly unconstitutional.

Shotguns are defensive in nature not offensive so what's the beef with a guy/gal wanting to protect his/her home from thieves and/or murderers?

Hmmm, last time I checked 3-gun competitions include shotguns, and they are military style. I guess the government doesn't consider shooting competitions a sportLoco
