Here is how I would do it if I was a power hungry evil government stooge
 
1. Ban all fire arms and require that all firearms be turned in at your local police station within 30 days.
2. Anyone caught with a firearm after 30 days gets 10 years hard labor.
3. Anyone who has a registered firearm that doesn't turn it in within 30 days cannot receive any government benefit, be it a drivers liscense, welfare, unemployment, medicare, etc. Also, they will be fined $1000 a day for every day after 30 that they haven't turned in the weapon. The money will be automatically deducted from your paycheck/bank accounts/401K. Any fines that you don't pay will result in siezure of your assets. Bank accounts, house, car, etc. Your children will have to be taken from you as well because you can't care for them and will become wards of the state.
4. Anyone who provides information to law enforcement that results in the confiscation of a firearm will receive a bounty of $10,000.
5. If someone tells a law enforcement official that you have a firearm, you will be required to turn it in to the police within 30 days or you will be treated as in item #3. It will be assumed that you have a firearm whether you do or not.

I wouldn't even bother with house to house searches.


Borrowed this from another site. Yes, I know it wouldn't work today but . . . Give the socialist another couple years and maybe. As Norman Thomas said this in a 1944 speech:
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”

Perhaps I am a little uniformed. But I was under the impression that dealers keep your information after the sale. There has to be a reason for that. I believe everyone needs a couple of guns bought from private parties.

I've a friend in Idaho, when he wants a firearm he gives the cash to one of his friends and they go buy it for him. I don't think he has one firearm, and he owns close to a 100, that has his name on it anywhere. Paper trails are dangerous.

And straw purchases are illegal.

Your friend in Idaho is a felon and a bad name for legal ownership of firearms. Do you call him, e-mail him, text him or snail mail him? If so, you have just provided an electronic trail to him. :eek:

Legal gun owners? LOL! All laws on the ownership of firearms are unconstitutional, hence illegal, read your constitution. What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you find difficult to understand?

Oh, I get it. You are one of those. But if you are trying to use that as a disclaimer to your friend making straw purchases, then I wish him luck.

Tell us more about your friend. Where in Idaho does he live?

Don't get me wrong here, I agree that gun laws are unconstitutional, however these laws ARE on the books and untill the day that they are not then it is as Skull said. No ifs ands or buts about it.

I have given firearms as gifts! Just as I would if I had bought a car and given it to my son for graduation!! :D

As for the OP's scenario, they'd get the guns I have; bullets first!
