Yes, I would.
No, I would not.
I've neither the need nor desire to comply.... so I won't.
I don't have a gun, but if I did, not a chance.

They could only really enforce this for registered guns, otherwise how will they know who does or doesn't have guns, and how many?
So, the people with registered guns, a group that I imagine is largely law abiding (in this regard) would have to turn in their guns.
All the gangbangers, criminals etc. who get their guns via the black market, would be able to keep their guns. They are already criminal, so why would they voluntarily hand in guns that the government wouldn't otherwise know about?
I don't think a policy to take away newly outlawed guns would be a very good idea, and I imagine it would make society much more dangerous, even if everyone were to voluntarily comply, which is the best case scenario.
Realistically, the only way to outlaw guns would be to prohibit, sales, transfers etc. of firearms, not just try to "disarm" the public. Getting a gun free society like this would take many generations of course, and could never be fully done.
It's best just to leave the gun laws the way they are (for the most part). Try to keep track of the guns but don't outlaw them.
First, I haven't owned a gun for 25 years but I accidentally voted before I carefully read the OP. Sorry.
I'll guess that if I had one, it would be registered. So, I would have little choice. As for a unregistered one, I don't know what my purpose would be if I had to deep hide it and make it unavailable. Would I plot a murder and then go dig it up. Hard to say. That's probably why I don't own one.
a few have purchase/possession permits... most don't.
a couple have AWB... most don't.
enforcing a ban will be impossible.... they would have to go to every single home in American and execute a search warrant in hopes of finding the guns.... not gonna happen.
I can imagine a few states saying " hell no" to enforcing a federal firearms ban...
I read today about a Kentucky sheriff declaring his office will not enforce any new federal gun bans.
There arent going to be too many politicians in areas to vote for something they know will sink them for re election...there are going to be gun controls coming the question is what kind. Lets remember there are democrats from areas that are very much pro gun...w virginia is basically democrat and try to take their guns and see how you make out. I dont see those democrats voting for hefty gun bans...
