Second amendment debate: The ultimate solution
I’ve come up with the ultimate solution to the whole ‘Second Amendment’ debate.
Anyone can get a gun any time. No background checks, no training requirements, nothing. Walk into a store, or a convention, or whatever. Get a gun. Flood the market with guns.
But prior to this policy coming into force, all guns must be turned in.
Why must they be turned in you ask?
Because when this is implemented All guns, from today onward, have bullet DRM. They will not fire without the proper, specifically licensed bullets.
And these bullets will be obtusely difficult to obtain. Like, Nintendo-Switch-One-Day-After-Launch difficult. You need a bullet license, a bullet background check, a receipt for each shell fired - and a maximum number of shells per person per year/lifetime, there can only be a certain number of bullet stores per capita, and you can only purchase bullets from your specifically (and geographically randomly) assigned vendor.
Perhaps the number of shells is determined based on a psychological evaluation + criminal record check. In addition, the shells would be for your specific weapon, and would not work in the same model, owned by another person. So stockpiling from eBay vendors wouldn’t work.
I believe this would make everyone happy, because it ruins the spirit of the argument on both sides, allowing the pro-gun control people to laud their hefty supply of armaments against the cowardly no-guns, but allowing the cowardly no-guns to laugh at the inability of the gunners to perform, surely making metaphors about their sex life at the same time.
