OK guys, I give up.
I appreciate those few who were willing and able to participate in the exercise as proposed.
I am somewhat bewildered by the number of replies that either refuse to admit that we have lost our full natural and enumerated right to keep and bear arms, or that admit it but then insist that we pretend we have not.
For the record, I am a vehement, libertarian-style RKBA advocate, and I started this thread out of my own curiosity and with no hidden agenda.
P.S. @shortwave: The "actually punish criminals not citizens" is another good proposal -- thank you for that. I'd add that to the poll if I could.
