Unless you live in Missouri and the Democrats get their way...
Other states beating the confiscation drum? I forget...
California, Minnesota, New York, New Jersey...
The gun grabbers will do everything possible to limit gun ownership without outright banning them. They’d love to do the latter, of course, but they know they don’t have the political power to take all guns. Here’s a list of possible gun grabber approaches I made up:
1) Capture as many gun transactions/information as possible in national databases. If possible, 100% gun registration.
2) Background checks on all gun transactions including ammo.
3) Gun licensing and mandatory recurring gun safety training.
4) Extra (prohibitive) taxes on gun and ammo purchases.
5) Requirements to carry liability insurance to own a gun, with increasing premiums based on the types and quantities owned.
6) Limits on the kinds of guns that can be manufactured, including guns locks keyed to owner DNA, fingerprints, etc. (single shot weapons preferred).
7) Requirement to store guns in government approved safes when not in use. Ammo must be stored separately.
8) Random home inspections and certifications to ensure #7 or...
9) Requirement to store all guns at federally owned storage sites with waiting periods to draw gun out for use.
10) Waiting lists to buy even approved guns.
11) Limits on the number of guns that can be purchased per year and/or total number that can be owned.
12) Anti-gun curriculum added to schools (children, doctors, and others encouraged to report gun owners).
13) Requirement to send guns back to manufacturers for annual serviceability checks (this one would be a boon for gun manufacturers, sort of like Obamacare for health insurance companies—a potential way to get gun manufacturers to support legislation).
14) Requirement to file plans prior to transporting any gun across state borders (with a long wait for approval of course).
15) Requirement to buy government approved container and pay for professional installation in vehicle prior to transporting any gun.
16) Pressure companies to put financial pressure or stop doing business with gun manufacturers, merchants, and owners.
17) Heavy fines and permanent ban from ever owning another weapon for violating any of the above infringements.
18) Mental health checks for owner and everyone in household prior to approval to buy a gun subject to the other restrictions above. Record of treatment for PTSD, addiction, depression, etc., gets one banned from ever owning guns.
19) Whatever else they can think of to make it extremely difficult to own a gun without infringing on the right to bear arms!
You’ll hear the 2nd Amendment, like the 1st, is not absolute. Reasonable (LOL!) restrictions on gun ownership will be sold as necessary for public safety. You’ll still have the right to bear arms. It might be a prohibitely priced, single shot muzzle loader (subject to the slew of restrictions above), but technically you’ll still have the right to own a gun.
I thought Minnesota or one up there was trying to mirror Missouri and also to ban "expandable" ammo. The crux is that hunting for some game specifically requires hunters to use expandable ammo...
