Lol no need... after this recession/depression you will quite possibly be selling your car and taking the bus to buy groceries at your local co-op.

Again muzzle rounds would be todays pricing.


Smart gun technology should also be "developed" as an accessory to your current gun. Anyone that's registered their weapon would need to go through an inspection like a smog shop.


As for selling back your weapons that is on you. If you decide to keep them registration is gonna be expensive.


Anyone caught with an unregistered gun can work in the labor camps and do their time.


Muzzle loaders bring back the sport to what it was... 2nd amendment era... real sportsmen.
You know that your ideas make no sense at all. Keep trolling.

You realize, of course, that back in that era, hunting wasn't sport.....it was survival.

No it has not, several states have registration and no confiscation unless you want to count removal from someone with a restraining order against them.

Objecting to adding more restrictions that makes others "feel good: but does nothing to address the issue does not make someone "gun crazy". Mass shootings are a Mental health issue NOT a gun control issue, that is where the focus should be, many of the mass shooters have been reported prior but not been properly evaluated.

If try to deal with gun use in homicides, that is a different issue, most homicide perpetrators and victims involve those that have been arrested many times, more of a legal/court issue - could potentially be better addressed by stricter enforcement of the current laws, rather than add new ones.

Saying it is easy to obtain a gun tells me that you have not tried to buy a gun, at least not recently - and certainly not in CA, NJ, NY, IL etc. Much harder to obtain than many think.

Come on down to Texas. The El Paso shooter didn't have any trouble gettin a gun.

One of the reason the invention of cars made such a big hit was NYC was picking up tons of horse manure daily.

And removing IIRC, 10 dead horses a day.

Where do you put all that?

Dog food, fertilizer glue, other uses and the occasional horse head in bed.

In the examples you speak of, registration (which was specifically designed for subsequent confiscation) was the beginning of subjugation by authoritarian governments. We're not that. And not because a bunch of us have guns but because a bunch of us vote. By the people, for the people.

Our government gets closer to a dictatorship every year. And I am not just talking about the current administration. We lose more freedoms all the time.
