I'm sorry to say, I believe all they would have to convince is Congress. The President is already on board.


Marg6043 is pretty close. LLSS on the other hand, is wrong. Congress is the representatives of the People. They are in fact the voice of the people, in the Government body form.

There's an amendment that protects us from what you have suggested. The 2nd Amendment.

An amendment can only be changed by a vote of 2/3's the states populous in favor of such. And that simply won't happen.

Gun and Pawn shops.

Gun Shows

Walmart

and the easiest of all... Online (which will still require the transfer through a FFL)

Think of the bigger picture.

How do they stop anything? Drink driving?, ban alchol, nope, change attitudes towards them and make it a jail-offence, yup.

How do you ban guns without shootings with cops taking them? Simple,

1. Ban the sale of new guns
2. Ban the sale of ammo
3. Make it an offence to carry a gun in a public space.

That way you can keep your guns, but you can't get new ammo, and eventually everything rusts!

So if they wanted to do it they could very easily. Its the same argument from the die-hard smokers...... "they'll never stop me smoking" in twenty years time, fags will only be found in museums!

Sorry. Won't work. The 2nd Amendment provides the people (you and I) with the right to possess and bear arms.

As far as taking away the ammo?


You want some ammo? I'll make you some. That's why they invented the reloading kits.

I'm there. They can take my guns, after I give them the ammo first, out of my cold dead fingers.

Ban the ammo, all that is left is home loaders...

Ban the sale or transport of explosive material, and you've got no more powder for reloads...

Guess that means no more barbecues then, huh? They'll have to ban the sale and transport of charcoal, too. Since charcoal is one ingredient for making gunpowder.
