Why the hell do I get dragged into this? I'll humor you through. What happens in this scenario. Years ago I am given an M16. At the time they were worth about 8k. My grand father paid around 400 for it. Now they are worth ~20k. If the gov does a round up so I get back $400, $8000, or $20000? Do I get cash back or tax credit? You do know there are literally trillions of dollars of firearms out there right?

I will give you $1k cash for it

Apparently, Chuck, you didn't realize the millions of warm fuzzies that are associated with the taking of other people's firearms.

Currently I am unaware of the exchange rate from warm fuzzies to dollarydoos, though.  :)

Do the fuzzies have a different exchange rate to the quarter million people plus that will lose their jobs over night? Not saying nothing should be done. Just saying that the issue is complex and anyone who thinks they have the answer is a fool. Ask Australia.

Well it seems i can not regulate guns unfortunately,  but lets push to get some controls on Ammo,

 

if a gun needs a permit, registration etc.  you need to provide proof and background check before ammo purchases.

ps.  i'd pay more in taxes to round up the guns.  purchase value.

So to recap, my grandfathers Colt Python. Sells all day long for 2k now. I have receipt for it from 1958 he paid $89. It's really the only thing I have of his. You propose someone knocks on my door and gives me 89 dollars for it? Yeah, out of my cold dead hand. 

 

Regulating ammo if its not a real time check I do not have an issue with. A lot of states have cards you need to buy. They do a check once a year. I don't have a problem with that, but all cost a tax payer $$$$

I would say regulating ammunition is akin to regulating alcohol.  How well did that work?

They're only "worth" that much because of the '86 MG ban which was slipped in to an otherwise ok bill by one congressman at the last minute with no debate. It will be repealed sooner or later, they'll go back to being "just" NFA items (huge pain in the dick to transfer, tons of paperwork and special rules) and worth no more than a nice AR-15. Full auto is overrated anyway.

Wouldn't it be nice if the "safe hearing" suppersor bill passed? No more months of waiting and $$$$.

It is a pointless and dumb bill on all parts. I do not think suppressors should be regulated, but I also think they are 99% pointless. As for select fire being over rated, I do not even know what to say to that. Single fire will put someone down, but will not reliably keep them for firing back. Full auto is good on trained personnel with fire control, select fire works wonders with noobs. Either way, semi-auto is a no go on a fielded weapon. From civilian standpoint who cares. If you want something for self defense use a scatter gun and be done with it.

You watch WAY too much cable news Mike.  They don't even have details yet.

Have you seen a dead body yet?

I don't watch any cable news specifically because they OJ-ize EVERY little spark.

Ok, you are right if you can tell me a solution without massive ramifications on the economy.
