Under the heading, "WHAT IF".
 
The recently elected US Government, which swept to power with an overwhelming majority in both The Senate and The Hose of Reps. today put into action one of it's pre Election promises by passing radical new Gun Laws.
 
From today, gun owners, licensed or otherwise will have to comply with the laws or face harsh penalties including confiscation of property and imprisonment.
 
Among the tough new laws are the following:-
  1. No civilian is permitted to own or possess any type of Assault Rifle;
  2. Civilians are people other than Law Enforcement Bodies or the Military;
  3. No one shall own a firearm of any type which has a magazine capacity of more than five rounds;
  4. All long barrel weapons, such as rifles and shotguns shall have a barrel length of no less than 21inches, measured from the breech to the end of the barrel;
  5. All hand guns, revolvers pistols etc. shall be handed in for destruction;
  6. People may apply for permits to own hand guns;
  7. If certain requirements are met, they may be issued with a Permit to Carry;
  8. NO PERSON shall own any firearms of the automatic or semi-automatic variety-such as manufactured by H&K, Uzi, MP5 and others.
  9. No person under the age of 18 shall be permitted to own, carry or use any long barrel weapon unless they are under the direct supervision of a responsible adult;
  10. No one shall possess a silencer or any means of sound suppression of any kind for fitting to a firearm.

In order to enforce these laws which are expected to meet the strongest opposition, the Defence and Space Exploration budgets have been cut, and the military, including Reserves and National Guard will be mobilised to assist in searching for hidden weapons. Police and Military engaged in searching for weapons will not need to apply for Search Warrants, but will be issued with an Executive Order signed by the President.

FIVE YEARS LATER:
The President of the USA, recently re-elected, has gone national in his praise of the military and Law Enforcement people who have for the past five years been engaged in the National Gun Eradication Program.
 
The President announced that there has not been a single school shooting for over two years, and there has not been a mass shooting for more than three years. The national Murder Rate is down to 27% on the figures of five years ago.
 
He also said that the compliance rate with the new laws was pleasing and that, although some houses and cars had been confiscated because of non compliance, the number of people imprisoned was lower than expected.
 
He pleaded with Americans to maintain their vigilance on gun matters so that all can live in peace and harmony.
 
.......and now boys and girls, it's bed time.Wink

Mein Gott! What a horror story!

It seems that Hitler, Stalin, Et.al, did much the same. Sure worked out well in those cases!

Ron:
The Port Arthur massacre, of 28–29 April 1996, was a killing spree in which 35 people were killed and 23 wounded, mainly at the historic Port Arthur prison colony, a popular tourist site in south-eastern Tasmania, Australia. This was accomplished by one maniac, using an assault rifle. (He was convicted and sentenced to the longest term of imprisonment ever handed down in Australia-35 consecutive Life sentences).
 
The Federal Government was so concerned about this, following along behind two similar but smaller incidents in Victoria, that it demanded changes to firearm laws.
 
What eventuated was pretty much what I listed above.
 
Hunters and members of registered Gun Clubs can, after a police check, become licensed owners of long barrel or handguns, but there must be a good reason for the applicants to have the weapons.
 
There have been no mass shootings in Australia ever since. Simple, isn't it?

Since you "toyomotor" are no longer a resident of this site, maybe you can post the same on your "Historum" site?

But, it makes no difference to me! Maniacs can kill in numerous ways, and guns are not the best way. How about throwing Molotov cocktails into crowded events, like High School basketball games, or into crowded cocktail bars, or even into churches or funerals?
One deranged individual could easily do 10 or more of these events in a few hours without getting caught! Certainly hundreds or thousands could be killed or maimed within an amazingly short time! The Police response to the first one would tie-up these "protect and serve" personal which would allow a continuing attack at other sites of interest!

OH! You mentioned this atrocity; "The Port Arthur massacre, of 28–29 April 1996, was a killing spree in which 35 people were killed and 23 wounded, mainly at the historic Port Arthur prison colony, a popular tourist site in south-eastern Tasmania, Australia. This was accomplished by one maniac, using an assault rifle. (He was convicted and sentenced to the longest term of imprisonment ever handed down in Australia-35 consecutive Life sentences)."

In a world whereby, no one is sure just whom/who is also armed, then the above asshole, might well have been shot an killed by the nearest armed and trained civilian? Who knows?

Please don't mess with the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the U.S.A!!!

We need our weapons to keep our governmental leaders, which we really do not much trust, honest!
