Hey, progs, want to repeal the 2nd Amendment?

Then, as Charles C.W. Cooke wrote in 2015, get going:
When Australia took its decision to Do Something, the Australian citizenry owned between 2 and 3 million guns. Despite the compliance of the people and the lack of an entrenched gun culture, the government got maybe three-quarters of a million of them — somewhere between a fifth and a third of the total. That wouldn’t be good enough here, of course. There are around 350 million privately owned guns in America, which means that if you picked up one in three, you’d only be returning the stock to where it was in 1994. Does that sound difficult? Sure! After all, this is a country of 330 million people spread out across 3.8 million square miles, and if we know one thing about the American people, it’s that they do not go quietly into the night.

I don't worry too much about the 2nd being repealed. What I could see happening is the death of the firearms industry by over regulation. Especially in regards to ammo production. They might try to limit production, or make ammo unaffordable to the average Joe.

Which is why, if you have a gun collection, you should have an even larger ammo collection. A LARGE collection.
