Well we have to look at this from another angle. Let's just say that a ban on firearms, black rifles, semi auto's in general was enacted and possession was now unlawful. Everyone is given 30 days to turn them in.
Out of the 300 million guns, or whatever the number is, many would in fact be turned in. Why you ask? Because law abiding gun owners are just that, law abiding. They have no desire to be labeled a criminal or break the law no matter how strange the law is. They would follow the law and surrender their firearms. They would not face prosecution nor confront LE in order to keep them. Not all mind you but many would.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
I will not give up, I will not surrender. A war was fought over 200 years ago in order to release this great nation from the bonds of tyrants, and I fear another one coming. We are being controlled by tyrants, using opinion and emotion as stated fact, with their only mission to gain further control. We are already living under greater tyranny than that which the Founding Fathers rose up against, yet we are "freer" than ever according to those who wish to control us.

Funny thing is while on a fishing trip last week all my guns fell over board.

I left LosT Angeles in 2007. I never looked back. I stayed there for 2 years and had some fun but I'd never live there again. Nothing special there and majority of people living there I didn't get along with because of my personal views on firearms and politically.
There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
We have deep thinkers and stinkers in this group that could come up with a solution...
Those who will not govern their own behavior are slaves waiting for a master; one will surely find them.
