Want to create a gun-free America in 5 easy steps?
Here’s all there is to it:
Step 1: Elect. For a gun-free America, the first thing you’ll need is two-thirds of Congress. So elect a minimum of 67 Senators and 290 Representatives who are on your side.
Step 2: Propose. Then, have them vote to propose an amendment to the Constitution which repeals Second Amendment gun rights for all Americans.
Step 3: Ratify. Then convince the legislators of 38 states to ratify that change.
At this point, the Second Amendment is history, but you’ve done nothing to decrease gun violence. All you’ve done is remove the barrier for Congress to act.
Step 4: Legislate. You need to enact “common sense” reform.
You can try to do what Australia did and…ban all guns? That’s not at all what they did, but whatever, f#@k it. Go big or go home, right?
It will have to be passed by Congress and signed by the president.
Great! The law is passed and guns are now illegal. The only thing left to do is…
Step 5: Enforce. Guns won’t just disappear because you passed a law. You need to confiscate some 350 million guns scattered among 330 Million Americans.
Sure, you can try a buy-back program like Australia, but like Australia that will still leave behind anywhere from 60 percent to 80 percent of privately owned firearms.
The rest you have to take.
You’ll need the police, the FBI, the ATF or the National Guard—all known for their nuanced approach to potentially dangerous situations—to go door-to-door, through 3.8 million square miles of this country and take guns, by force, from thousands, if not, millions of well-armed individuals. Many of whom would rather start a civil war than acquiesce.
So inevitably gun violence, which is currently at a historic low, will skyrocket.
But that is how you get a gun-free America in five easy steps.

Good essay, though in truth there’s nothing preventing the Fedcoats from skipping ahead and starting directly with Step 5.
I will die before giving up my guns. Each of us needs to firmly resolve to do this. Mentally rehearse it every day. Explain to your loved ones well in advance why you MUST do this if things deteriorate to that point. We all have to die eventually. We do NOT have to spend the short time we have on this earth under the jackboots of idiots, psychopaths, authoritarians, and other loathsome, inferior creatures.
I believe we have the official label for all patriots to identify them with. Fedcoats it is indeed!
Fedcoats, i like it!
I like that one, too. I wish I could take credit for it. =)
Doesn’t much matter where the credit goes… spread the word anyway!
Vast majority of the US citizenry have no idea what that means.
Better yet: post the entire nation as a “Gun Free Zone” and no one will have a gun. What is the problem, “Gun Free Zones” work, don’t they???
