    There was a man locked up in prison who loved guns. So he made his own guns in the prison workshop and would have never got caught with them except some one stole on to use in an escape attempt. The guns he made became the prototype for the M-1 Carbine a weapon that was semi-automatic and was used by assault troops during WWII.

    The Allies needed cheap fully automatic weapons. The gun factories were too busy make existing patterned rifles. So a weapon that could be made from existing sized materials was developed. These weapons could be made using common hand tools and done in small lots. There were called the "Sten gun" or "Grease gun". Parts to make one today cost under 50 dollars.

    There are several hundred military firearms "lost" every year state side. Guess where they go! Some times they are recovered. Ammunition also comes up "short" on inventory. The same thing happens in law enforcement agencies on an all to regular basis.

    Of the weapons impounded or taken by governments in the past records show that about 1/3 of them are also unaccounted for. It doesn't take too much to see that more then likely the person who has them did not get them legally.

    If the supply of guns in private hands already was not enough, the rules of economics state a supplier will be found. Be it private black market manufacturing or procurement by stealing guns from government agencies that have them.

    Laws are only good for the person who is willing to obey the law. The average US citizen only obeys the laws that are convenient for them to obey. Some one will supply what is illegal and a law will not stop it.

      Plus the SS piston moves 5/16-3/8", enough to unlock a bolt . 1/10" like in the movie doesn't work. There have been short recoil systems from 1884.

    There would be a stampede to buy guns (re: Obama sold the most guns of any president) There would be a linked increase in the sales of Shovels, and large bore PCV Pipe.

    Prices would Sky-Rocket.

    Gun Publications would increase, with the HSA, FBI, USPS, ATFB-E, and other agencies taking names & addresses for use during the final Gun Grab.

    I would expect the Government to Publish (secretly) its own Gun Magazines to garner Mailing Lists for the Gun Grab.

    Any Limitation on Gun Purchase/Ownership, Licensing/Permits can only end with confiscation. There is no other reason to "be infringed".

    Important business and government have their own hired bodyguards.

    I imagine it would be very similar to the era of Prohibition....

    considering how families like the Kennedys profited so greatly back then, I suppose it only make sense their heirs would push for similar measures today....

    I don't think there would be any difference. More people would buy illegally.

    Not much different then it is today. They would circulate the existing guns around for the next few decades until the political climate changes and they can buy new ones. There would be little effect on guy violence, etc.

    It would reduce but not eliminate gun violence.

    Still the same.

    Blood bath galore.

    We need to do a thorough house to house sweep and get rid of them all in order for any of this to work out well.
