    How to Create a Gun-Free America in 5 Easy Steps

    One thru four focus on amendment to repeal the 2nd and new laws banning firearms ....
    Step 5: Enforce. Guns won't just disappear because you passed a law. You need to confiscate some 350 million guns scattered among 330 Million Americans.

    Sure, you can try a buy-back program like Australia, but like Australia that will still leave behind anywhere from 60 percent to 80 percent of privately owned firearms.

    The rest you have to take.

    You'll need the police, the FBI, the ATF or the National Guard—all known for their nuanced approach to potentially dangerous situations—to go door-to-door, through 3.8 million square miles of this country and take guns, by force, from thousands, if not, millions of well-armed individuals.

    Many of whom would rather start a civil war than acquiesce.

    So inevitably gun violence, which is currently at a historic low, will skyrocket.

    But that is how you get a gun-free America in five easy steps.

      Liberals focus on gun control, conservatives focus on gun control, neither side looks at helping the mentally sick or combating the root causes of the problem.

      Probably because that would cost money and effort.

        Once again, I have no desire to erase that amendment but I DO support looking at tightening up how ones obtain guns, restricting some types of guns, at reforming our view on mental health and gun ownership, magazine capacities and possibly changes involving concealed handguns.
        What difference will any of this make is the usual response from those who want no changes made.
        Well I have one in response - what has doing nothing as respecting gun usage done? Well, leaving the 2nd Amendment completely alone has not stopped these mass shootings! It goes to show that the current status quo is NOT working!
        We need to be open minded and mature and at least consider looking at the issue. Doing nothing hasn't worked!!!

        Arguably, doing nothing has worked given the significant drop in the number of murders via gun over the last 25 years. (Based on FBI statistics) Our murder rate has been steadily declining while there has been a massive increase in the number of legally owned guns here.

        This fact would suggest that efforts to further regulate guns owned by the law abiding populace will be of little or no benefit. The people you would seek to burden with additional regulations aren't really the problem.
        I have yet to see a reasonable suggestion that would burden only those who are responsible for the shootings.
