    What would it take?

    Im curious since this is second amendment related question?

    What would it take to LEGALLY and I do mean legally repeal the brady and other firearm acts which deny private citizens, not subjects like UK, the ability to own select fire weapons again. I still fill this is a massive violation of our 2A and people have been letting it go unchallenged for too long. Remember it isnt about having a fully auto rifle its about having the full exclusive access to our second amendment rights.

    What would it take? This is a valid question, not stirring controversy just curious?

    Consider that there would be massive opposition from those who have invested heavily in full-auto weapons. If restrictions were removed, they could easily lose 95% of the current value of their investment with the stroke of the pen.

    I've always said guns aren't an investment.

    I think everyone would be happier if they could but newer versions of their aging guns so they can shoot those instead of something rare and collectable. There's only so long a real MG42 will fire before breaking and replacement parts are getting rare.

    Simple, it would take a Congress with the intestinal fortitude to repeal the 1934 National Firearms Act, not the bunch of losers we have now.

    It's a political Red Hot Potato with Leprosy.
    I'm best guessing that nobody in politics will ever touch it no matter who gets voted out and who they get replaced with.

    There are a lot of gun owners in the United States but, compared to the total U.S. population we are still an extreme minority.

    I agree. It would take a massive shift in the thinking of the American public. Not likely to happen soon, if ever. What possible benefit could a politician get by identifying himself with the most demonized weapons in existence? I can only see this happening if aliens invade or something. Otherwise, the supreme court would have to strike it down.

    It would mean that most people would have to wake up and realize that Government could enact these same type of laws against non-auto weapons. We would then lose the ability to buy them as well. Attrition is our enemy.

    What would it take? Every last one of us. Taking control of OUR government once again. Things have gotten way out of hand. We all may be at fault for not educating our future generations (most of today's voters if the election of 'O' is any indication of the times) enough, and instilling those principles we base ourselves upon...our foundation, our true-to God and country beliefs . Turn the tide now or it's all over. Every last one of us before the last one sheds blood for the cause.

    It's way beyond the Bradys or modern gun control. Even many (perhaps most) people who would identify themselves as conservative have been conditioned to see automatic weapons as "going too far." As has been pointed out, this isn't recent, it's been ingrained over several generations, well over half a century.

    Look at how the press flipped their friggin' wigs over the mere sight of a semi-automatic slung over a man's back at a protest, despite him being nowhere near the president and not giving police or the Secret Service the slightest worry.

    The success of the concealed carry movement over the last couple of decades is stunning, and one of the reasons it worked is that it's been done relatively quietly. Despite it being in 41 states, many people are still surprised to hear that most regular Americans can carry a concealed weapon. There would be no way to quietly make full auto legal again.

    And maybe I'm too optimistic and this is anecdotal, but I've seen a number of collectors who said they'd be fine taking the loss on the value of their collection if it meant being able to buy cool new stuff and regaining that right. I think they are the majority. I have no doubt that some might be short-sighted and resist, but I think they'd be in the minority.

    So what would it take? Alien invasion? Zombie apocalypse? That's about the level of likelihood we're talking here.

    Well if our country goes flat broke which I have no doubt is soon going to pass... then who's to say some country out there will not take advantage and attempt a hostile invasion being that we cant afford to defend it any longer.
