  •  We were talking about Switzerland (0+ / 0-)

    but in the USA, the only legislation likely to pass and not be subject to a constitutional challenge is mandating background checks for all purchases. Mandating background checks for all existing firearms would most likely be unconstitutional and probably unenforceable since there is no national registry of firearms and no way to find out who owns existing firearms.

    A better plan would be voluntary gun buyback programs, which have been proven to work.
