Excellent idea.

After all, look how well it worked when we made cocaine illegal.

I think it's pretty darn funny that people think LE would actually agree to door-to-door confiscation. A small percentage maybe but most wouldn't. Either because they like going home every day or they own firearms themselves. Both reasons in most cases.

Of the 20,000 gun laws on the book, name one case that the police refused to carry out their orders.

You need to read the book Ordinary Men where how the police battalion committed mass murder of the Jews.

Not only they would go door to door to confiscate whatever, they would commit mass murder or genocide when ordered to.

The background check for private sales in Oregon. The police said before it was passed they could not enforce it and have not.
