Re: FBI can't unlock smartphone

theres no way in hell theyd be able to get rid of the millions of guns in circulation , especially with 50% of the population in the "pry it from my cold dead fingers" demographic.

It could be done. It wouldn't be pretty and there might be a lot of cold dead fingers stretching out for taken guns afterwards.

It is having the will to do it which is the obstacle, deciding that is the thing to do for the greater good. It likely won't be as easy and as bloodless as it was in Australia. It would likely require some sort of revolution in America to bring it about, a "grand reset". I can't see that happening any time soon.
