Confiscate most guns in the country, and how it could be done [View all]

All guns must be licensed or would be considered illegal and a felony crime. There would be a grace period where people could voluntarily surrender their guns and get some form of monetary compensation, perhaps a tax break. After the grace period ended, hard-ass strict laws and rules would go into effect. In order to get a gun license, a full background investigation would be undergone and conducted, including a mental evaluation by a medical professional. Any warning signs or shaky background elements would disqualify the person from getting the gun license. And to procure a license would have to be for legitimate reasons such as necessary hunting or being in the military and having a weapon or being in some kind of security service or other kinds of reasons. You couldn't just own a gun "for the hell of it". Violations of having an unlicensed gun would be fully prosecuted and a serious offense.

Don't tell me it couldn't be done, because it could be. We went to the moon for gods sake, we could begin a gun round up and be successful. It would take time, but it would not be an impossible task.
