    That is an easy question.....our criminals are currently more violent and willing to kill more often and easily than the criminals in other countries....we are also on the border with the Narco state of Mexico where the drug cartels and the Mexican police and military already murder their citizens in the 10s of thousands every single year....

    Blood would run in the streets......innocent blood.

    Americans use their guns on average 1,500,000 times a year to stop violent criminal attack....if guns were banned, those attacks would be completed, not stopped......

    We can already see in Britain where violent crime rates, and gun crime rates are going up...our violent crime rates would sky rocket...and it would spread....

    Americans are not Australians or Euros. There is no way to enforce a national ban here. An actual attempt would cause an armed uprising of enormous proportions.

    It wouldn't go like that....the democrats are too smart for that....they would simply pass the law, and then, one by one they would pick off normal gun owners, make a big show of destroying their lives and scare everyone but the hard core into turning into their guns...then, the democrats in the media would declare the rest of the gun owners monsters and terrorists....giving the democrats even more power to use force when they found someone with a gun...

    I guess the government would first need to have lists of people who have purchased or registered guns. Then, they would send them a letter ordering them to turn in their gun(s). If they didn't turn in their guns, then the government would probably freeze their bank accounts, suspend their driver's license, place liens against their property, etc. They don't need to show up at one's door to compel their cooperation.

    Tres-Unconstitutional.

    That said -

    "Dear Mr. Government:

    "Received the other day your official request that I turn in my firearms.

    "I would like to comply, but unfortunately I am unable. About six weeks ago, just about the time the bill authorizing your request passed, an unusual event occurred. It was about three in the morning, and suddenly I was visited by a big bright light. It filled the room almost to blinding me. I thought I was about to be abducted by aliens!

    "Then, just as suddenly, the bright light was gone. I calmed myself and went back to sleep.

    "Strangely, the next day I discovered that the pistol you requested was missing from my biometric safe! 'How could this be?', I wondered.

    "Thinking possibly that I had left it in the larger safe, I ran to check, and discovered to my surprise and perplexity that ALL my firearms were gone. Vanished into thin air, just like that.

    "Needless to say, I was quite chagrined, having spent some real money on my security equipment!

    "A report has been filed with the local police, and they have all the information you may require about this most unusual event. Should my firearms be found, I will of course be happy to satisfy your earlier request.

    "With all sincerity, Billy"

    I think it would start with buy backs. Massive ones. You'd get a few takers too.

    Criminal organizations would still have guns of course.

    Black market guns would still be there.

    There is a special type of weird white guy mass shooter who I'd be curious how he turns. The Navy Seal worshiping, isolated fellow who eventually snaps.

    Were the Government to do as you suggest would cause the collapse of our entire economy.

    They wouldn't have to come to our door.

    I would see the nation showing up at their door, armed and physically removing them from their cushy positions.

    No one would do that. If 300 000 aliens landed on flying plates down here we wouldn't ban the plates and then expect them to walk back home. The question is how to control the gun owners.

    Why would the government confiscate your guns? That is dumb and will never happen.

    Put a tax on ammo. A $25.00 or $50.00 per bullet tax would do the trick. It could be used to offset Trump's infrastructure initiative.

    You would also see gun crime plummet.
