It is no one's business what I own.

Not if I was "in charge". That was the question.

The lower receiver would not be sold.

They would be sold back to the government through a buy-back program and then crushed. They would never be sold to civilians again.

You bought it when you could. Now you can't. Confiscation with no remuneration is not fair, so you have to have a way to get your money back. They bought your old cars, didn't they?

"Crowd Killers". Agreed. I just made it up. It refers to firearms that are either clip fed or magazine fed. You call 'em what you want.

Id do nothing. But, if others want to ban guns, the Founders laid out a clear path for them. They can work to amend the Constitution.

It is clearly a dishonest term.

Confiscation with payment is not "fair" either.
And No, no "they" did not.

Any magazine fed or clip fed firearms, would be all but 0.01% of all firearms in existence in the US.
Perhaps you are unaware of what the term "clip fed" or even "magazine fed", encompasses.

I'd make it mandatory that before anyone could be licensed to carry a gun they'd have to take a written test plus firing range test. No different than getting a driver license. You have to know the law and how to operate the item in question

Why not bring back literacy tests for voting?

Gun rights are part of our constitution. Im probably in the minority but I would gladly give up our rights in order to save more innocent lives. Lives are more important

Nothing.

Gun violence is a symptom of social pathology that would manifest itself in other ways. In criminology parlance, gun access is not the root cause of gun violence.

Historically legal restrictions on weapon ownership are a defining mark of tyranny. Gun access is necessary to have a free society.

I'd mimic those countries who've successfully maintained gun violence to a minimum regardless of Our Second Amendment Right.
