This poll is now closed.
The proposal:

- Gun ownership now requires a gun license, getting the gun license is like getting a driver's license, you have to take a test to prove your competency + knowledge of the laws and pass a background check. The license is presented when you are purchasing guns, and the guns will be registered with their owner.

- The National Firearms Act is amended to ensure that civilian ownership of fully automatic weapons, short barreled or "sawed off" rifles and shotguns, silencers/suppressors, and various types of ammunition (armor piercing, hollow point, etc.) are protected.

- A federal concealed carry license is created that has jurisdiction throughout the entire US, overriding any state or local laws attempting to prohibit concealed carry.

Have you seen the way people drive?

Edit: Holy S*** I just read the rest of your post. Sawed off shotguns, silencers, and a Federal mandated conceal/carry law? O_o
Better make Kevlar vests/outfits legal for everyone as well while you're at it, cause they're gonna need it.

You know the police would heavily protest the 'right' to own silencers and armor piercing bullets. That is just asking for trouble.

And it should never be a right for people to own weapons of war. They literally serve no other purpose then killing people. Shooting a 100 bullets a minute is not "home defense."

Unfortunately, the founding fathers would disagree with you. What the hell do you think cannons are for? They didn't ban those (granted, cannons could also be used for mining back before dynamite existed)
Granted, back in those days, civilians actually had to worry about siege warfare...

Most capitalists don't know that you can't become rich without doing the opposite of Jesus Christ's golden rule. Maybe that's why rich folk don't go to heaven.

Why bother? He also gave everyone armor-piercing bullets.

The only compromise I'd be a fan of; you don't have a gun and we don't send you to jail.
