Confiscation is a canard - who confiscated the lawn darts? [View all]

You don’t have to “confiscate all the guns”.

But... people can’t show up at the range with them, or generally carry them in public. As soon as someone has one in public, no one has to wait for them to shoot. If the weapon is in plain view during a domestic disturbance, traffic stop, or any other law enforcement encounter, then it is not simply a lawful firearm sitting over there in the corner or in the back of the car. Those types of things, plus the attrition due to inability to transfer, or owners’ estates disposing of them, will significantly reduce the ability of people to casually own and transport these weapons.

On top of that, there will be a reduced incidence of stolen weapons or circumstances where a young person runs off with mom or dad’s weapon, since many actually law abiding people will dispose of them.

There was no national confiscation program for lawn darts. When was the last time you saw one?
