My apologies if this has been suggested, re gun bans.

The first step in banning and confiscating military-style weapons is to prohibit their manufacture and importation. Simultaneously, a buyback program, along with confiscation from individuals convicted of a violent felony or possession-related law will, at the onset, fill any military and law enforcement need for new weapons. Only when there is a demand from qualified agencies that cannot be met with existing stock should manufacturers be allowed to produce new weaponry, and then only under the auspices of the government in charge of those agencies.

If anyone of authority has suggested this, would posters please cite such?

1. "confiscation from individuals convicted of a violent felony" - felons are not permitted to possess

firearms under current law.

3. Good.

The question is what happens to the confiscated weapons? It's my understanding that they are often, if not always, sold at auction.

They should be kept in the possession of the confiscating agency (or transferred to another military / law enforcement entity) and either used to deplete inventory or destroyed.

2. Businesses are sacred and off limits.

They give us all that trickle down.. um, stuff, and low wage dead end jobs. PBUT And they're rich. And they make large donations to politicians of a certain party.

Look no farther than the current crackdown on migrant workers, where despite thousands of arrests, not a single employer has seen the inside of a jail.

5. Well, they'll obviously fight any such legislation.

But there is amplified discussion of a renewal of the assault weapons ban. In the remote chance that's feasible, shouldn't this be a component of the legislation?
