Here is an idea straight out of Europe, Switzerland to be precise:

“Our 28th Amendment shall be:

In order to provide for the security of the individual, state and general wellbeing of the country, all able bodied individuals shall be required to own one modern firearm and a minimum of ten rounds of associated ammunition.

Individuals are required to receive training in marksmanship and operation of firearms. Military and law enforcement personnel shall be exempt from training if they have satisfactorily completed firearms training while in their course of their service.

Exceptions shall be made for those adjudicated mentally ill, convicted of a crime of domestic violence, a felony, or have been separated from the military with a Dishonorable Discharge.

Individuals that are fundamentally opposed to owning a firearm shall be taxed and each year shall register with the government as firearms objectors until age 62 or until proven by a medical doctor to be unable to operate a firearm.

If an individual is unable to purchase a firearm one shall be provided by the Federal Government.”

You see, in our country, when we have a law that says you may not do this or that, law abiding citizens obey the law. Criminals do not obey the law, so when the Government decides to restrict or even take away my or your guns, then we law abiding citizens will normally go ahead and follow the law, while criminals will continue to buy guns. Not from legitimate dealers, but on the black market from other criminals.
So I hear the rhetoric that says we are just trying to make it harder for bad people to get and to use guns, but the truth is, well look at the murder rate in Chicago for instance. It has one of the strictest gun laws in the country, yet there were more gun related murders in the city than there were deaths of our troops in Afghanistan.
Oh and the ban on Assault Weapons – there is already a ban and it says the only persons who can own fully automatic weapons (assault weapons), are police and soldiers. NO LEGAL Gunshop will sell you one. If that is true, why do we need another law saying the same thing? Understand that politicians feel they need to do something so they can say see I tried to stop the use of assault weapons so no one else would be killed in a GUN FREE ZONE. That way they figure to be reelected so they can collect the pay raise they just got, and continue to give themselves raises every 2 – 4 years. Politicians don’t really care about “We the People”, they care only about themselves. They have become citizens of Washington DC and no longer have a clue about what goes on in your town or mine.
BTW there is a petition online https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/project-amendment-28-require-firearms-ownership/swf6msdd check it out and if you think that the 28th amendment to the Constitution should be as outlined above sign the petition. It needs 100,000 signatures in order for someone to even bother with it.
