This Video Perfectly Explains Why Gun Control is Impossible

Gun Control

There’s an endless supply of liberals telling us that “nobody is coming for your guns,” but at the same time have found themselves seemingly unable to be able to list even one gun regulation that has shown much success. One writer for the liberal Vox writes “regulations aren’t enough. We need to take guns away.” The logic here: if gun control hasn’t worked, it’s because we need more gun control!

It’s not even worth debating what a country with no guns would be like – because physically confiscating all firearms is an impossible task. Reason, a libertarian think-tank, recently released a fantastic brief video detailing the steps the nation would have to go through to enact gun control:

Here are the excerpted steps:

Step 1: Elect. For a gun-free America, the first thing you’ll need is two-thirds of Congress. So elect a minimum of 67 Senators and 290 Representatives who are on your side.

Step 2: Propose. Then, have them vote to propose an amendment to the Constitution which repeals Second Amendment gun rights for all Americans.

Step 3: Ratify. Then convince the legislators of 38 states to ratify that change.

At this point, the Second Amendment is history, but you’ve done nothing to decrease gun violence. All you’ve done is remove the barrier for Congress to act.

Step 4: Legislate. You need to enact “common sense” reform.

You can try to do what Australia did and…ban all guns? It will have to be passed by Congress and signed by the president.  Great! The law is passed and guns are now illegal.  The only thing left to do is…

Step 5: Enforce. 
Guns won’t just disappear because you passed a law. You need to confiscate some 350 million guns scattered among 330 Million Americans.

Sure, you can try a buy-back program like Australia, but like Australia that will still leave behind anywhere from 60 percent to 80 percent of privately owned firearms.

The rest you have to take.

You’ll need the police, the FBI, the ATF or the National Guard—all known for their nuanced approach to potentially dangerous situations—to go door-to-door, through 3.8 million square miles of this country and take guns, by force, from thousands, if not, millions of well-armed individuals. Many of whom would rather start a civil war than acquiesce.

So inevitably gun violence, which is currently at a historic low, will skyrocket.

But that is how you get a gun-free America in five easy steps.
