Because of the recent SCOTUS ruling, the federal government now has the authority to make its citizens buy a product whether wanted or not. How about legislating that every individual or household is require to purchase a rifle, preferable M16. This would be for the collective good of the nation. Allow them to buy M16's (semi-auto) at the federal government rate. If they dont buy the rifle for the $400 (I believe I saw that the military paid $373 a piece on a military inventory database) they get hit with a mandate/tax for $500, every year. The only exemptions would be for married families. Only required 1 for the household, not one per person. And make them unsellable. That Japanese quote would actually be accurate with a rifle behind every blade of grass. Become the next Switzerland. There is a city in Georgia that actually requires this, but it is not enforced however. Cant remember its name. An easier process would be to do like th Israelis and make everyone serve two years in the military or government service. If they choose government service make them undergo rifle marksmanship. At the end of their two year tour give them their issued rifle. As much as I think this would actually make this country a little better, because of the libertarian side of me I would never support these measures. On the flip side, I do think the draft should remain viable. If we are ever attacked and possible invaded (Russia/China) every mother/father, man or women better pick up arms to defend the Republic and her citizens. Just a thought I had to stick it to democrats using their own medicine.
