would be very hard. but you can bet many on the left are thinking about how they would pull it off.
as we KNOW Obama suggested just that 2x in one speech
"We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours " Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours. So we know there are ways to prevent it."
Obama: Hey, forget what I said about Australia (twice) -- no one's looking to take away your guns!
UK gun confiscation that Obama wants for the USA - here is how the UK did it
"Rifles and pistols have been individually registered as such on personal Firearm Certificates in Britain since 1920, and magazine-fed shotguns with a capacity over three shots since 1988. Firearm Certificates, giving individual permission to possess specific serial numbered weapons, are subject to renewal by the police every five years (formerly every three years). At renewal, the police may make individual judgements about which particular firearms an owner will be allowed to retain, on the basis of recorded regularity of use, etc.
When the 1997 ban was implemented, the police had a complete list of every licensed pistol: unless one exported the weapon (and could prove it) or could satisfy the police that one had somehow destroyed it, one had no option but to hand it in. Every holder of licensed pistols received a letter from his local police authority, detailing when and where his registered weapons were to be surrendered. I rather doubt that many copies of those letters are still extant, and I cannot offer other references for what happened because it was simply not a matter for discussion: it was the obvious and inevitable way the system worked."
Info on confiscation of guns in the UK
US is 111th in the world for per capita murder 1st in gun ownership.
Highest gun ownership is Plano Texas <== and lowest murder rate
ergo: guns aren't the issue
