What do you think the odds are the Dems will be able to outlaw assault rifles (sporting rifles) all together

Zero. To your specific question in the next 3 years. 

Outlaw bump stocks: Likely by current administration.

The chance for more comprehensive background checks: Good.

Resurrect the  “Assault Weapons Ban”:  Possibly.

AKM47,

I figure that the DIMs chances of getting a majority in Congress is somewhere between ZERO & MINUS 5. = At least here in TX, they will be lucky to get 35%  of the vote in 2018/2020.

akm47,

I figure that the odds that any DIMocRAT can win in 2020 & be POTUS are about 100-1 against.

The short answer is that MIKE PENCE will win in 2020/2024.

I do not know. A lot of Republicans are pissed at Congress right now. They may stay home and not vote in the midterms... Many callers to talk radio shows are claiming this is what they are going to do.

Historically, the party not in power usually makes gains in the 1st midterm election after a new president. So, it is possible the Dems could retake the house. I hope not, but maybe

Nobody knows.

If they get something passed, Trump could sign it.
He is on record as supporting the last AWB and did not want to see it expire.

You're clearly an astute observer Ship.
And more (professional not talking heads) political analyst beleive there's a fair chance at least 1 house in Congress will flip sides, if not both.

I had given up following things for a few years. But in the past year, I have followed politics again. So, I try to keep up

Shipwreck,

IF the GOP & conservatives stay angry at the GOP in Congress & "stay home", they will have at least 2 full years (and maybe DECADES) to regret their FOOLISH decision, especially if one or more SCOTUS members retire & LEFTISTS replace the retiring lib(s).

We need another Justice of the sort that Ginsberg and/or Sotomayor is like we all need an aggressive malignant  tumor.

just my OPINION, satx

Yes, but that doesn't mean it won't happen...

I am rather sick of this nonsense myself....
