I have put on my Edgar Cayce hat and have seen the following happening over the next four years:
Congress will pass an assault weapon ban similar to the Clinton era ban
This is all the Obama administration will need to issue executive orders in increasing severity on firearms covered by the act.
1) Ban the manufacture of these firearms
2) Ban the commercial sale of any existing firearms / parts / supplies
3) Ban the private sale of any existing firearms / parts / supplies
4) Order that owners turn in these firearms to the government ( they will not need to come after the guns as a law will be passed that says something along the line ‘possession will be a felony in involving serious prison time’ attrition over time will take these firearms out of circulation.).
5) Begin to tax ammunition on the level that cigarettes are taxed
6) Encourage state and local governments to add additional taxes on ammunition
The Supreme Court already has four rabidly anti gun judges on the bench. Obama will be adding at least two more during his administration. Any gun case appearing before this new court will lose.
