Idea for gun control

Let's make it illegal to sell assault rifles and ammo, and if anyone tries to sell, anyone can report them for a $10,000 award which comes from a fine on the person selling the ammo or weapon.

I mean, we are not technically making it illegal to own a firearm.

2. Currently, you go to jail for trying to sell illegal weapons.

It sounds like your plan would replace serious jail time with a $10,000 fine.

3. We can sue anyone we see carrying

As well as the gun makers, sellers, middlemen, household members, and so on.

Tax the award money, and balance the budget, all in one pass

5. RWs will the rue the day they started all this.

Yes, it’ll be tit-for-tat, but the SC says this is alright. Dem states could come down hard on the issues we’re tired of dancing around on.

6. "Let's make it illegal " - there is the flaw in your plan

That is not going to happen. We don't have the votes in the Senate.

7. Good luck catching the worst offenders. They don't shop in stores but parking lots.
