Default What will happen if guns get banned?

The human mind is very creative. Whether a crock pot, pickup truck or AR15 is used to harm people, if they are banned something else will take their place.

Take a look at this. Now, how will congress control something like this?

Harming others will only stop when the brain is fixed, not the weapon removed!!

A lot of good US citizens will be turned into criminals by their own government.

For all of the vitriol and bluster, guns won't be banned. They would have to change the Constitution, and bad things will happen if they try that (not a threat, a prediction). Restrictive laws, like the assault weapons ban of the 90's, can happen again. But not an all out ban.
There are a lot of statistics and studies that have been done, by neutral and even liberal groups, that show gun bans haven't stopped the violence- Chicago is definitely proof of that. Makes sense. It isn't the tool, it's the person behind it.

I can see black guns getting 'banned' or at least curtailed or a buy back and I can also see a limit on the number of weapons a person can possess, long guns and hand guns but elimination of guns entirely would bring about civil disobedience for sure plus it flies in the face of the Constitution.

So yes and no. in many countries, citizens don't own firearms and if they do, it costs a fortune to have them. Germany comes to mind right away, civillian ownership costs so much in fees and permits, the average German citizen don't possess any.

Have a very good friend who works at JD in Mannheim, Germany that has exactly one hunting rifle, he cannot afford anything else because the cost of ownership is so high.

Kind of like the owners of bump stocks that still have them and there are probably thousands out there that while illegal are still there.

It is the definition of "Assault Weapon" which will get you. All semi auto hand guns and Ruger 10/22 as just a couple examples of what was listed here in Kalifornia. There will be nothing that makes any sense when done.

Agreed all out ban will not happen for at least many generations with changes happening to constitution. It will come, I will not see it.

In our state...we are already aholes for even owning any gun. They have and are trying everything out here they can to eliminate ownership...including now requiring background checks to buy AMMO!

As mentioned...only outlaws will have guns...soon there will be a lot more outlaws.

These...ummm...electeds, they will eventually run over 2A....but like all control and power grabs, it will soon translate to other “Rights” that they don’t like or that impede their lust for ever more...

You could ban 100% of all guns and firearms and it will NOT make one difference !
Why ?

Criminals do NOT obey the laws !!!
It IS that simple.

Here, north of the 49th , we got similar 'issues' BUT getting a handgun permit is dang hard, getting a 'carry permit' next to impossible HOWEVER, every other day of so, some 'kid' gets killed in Toronto by a handgun. Cops and pollies FINALLY said that 80+% of all illegals handguns come from the USA. Boarder guards told NOT to seach cars with blacks in them, coming up for Caribanna(HUGE festival). That would be racist...profilling....slow down entry ....

The liberal idiots have brainwashed the public that a 100% ban on handguns would eliminate the murders.......meanwhile Toronto's fast becoming Chicago of Canada.

I wasn't intending on starting an ownership of gun debate, only an idea of other methods those with a demented mind might try. That's what the video reminded me of. Sorry, maybe it was a bad title.

Title was fine and I've viewed that video long before you linked it. Necessity is always the mother of invention. Like the bump stock thing. I thick rubber band and correct placement of it does the same thing and the cost is about 10 cents.
