The SAPdrome ...

... banging on about their Constitutional rights and 'The Right to Bear Arms'.
Firstly, lets just see what the Second Amendment actually says shall we?
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Can anyone see the problem here? As I understand it, the American state runs a military so large it can fight two wars at once. This means a MiIitia isn't needed and so there's no need for the Second Amendment.
None of that means that anything sensible can be done until such time as the Second Amendment is repealed. Don't hold your breath.
Secondly, let's look all this 'murders are done with guns bought on the black market' nonsense. Apart from a few home made guns ALL guns started life as legitimately held, from where they leaked into the illegal market in robberies and so on. If the pool of legal weapons disappeared the illegal weapons would eventually disappear.
.... massive adoption of VPN, Tor etc, making the job of GCHQ much more difficult, due to the can't-see-the-wood-for-the-trees effect.
And having had a moment to reflect, this is the last straw for me. I'll be working to obfuscate (great word) my online activities. Suggestions welcome.
...a government regulated white list. Shockingly, there'll be a charge to get on. Initially it will be trivial so you can't object. You see where this is going... And yes, like down under, VPN and so on will be restricted to 'those with a legitimate use case', you'll have to apply for a license and pay the charge for one.
....Suit #1: Well, that's another one gone, we'll soon be able to put up the price of Xeons so much we'll be able to hear the screaming from space. Lol, trebles all round!
Suit #2: What about this Chinese thingy?
Suit #1: I think our guy in The Whitehouse will see to that.
