Hypothetical Second Amendment Scenario

Lets say that for some unknown reason, two major second amendment issues are altered with the following legislation:

Law 1: All states are now Shall-Issue CHL states (Including D.C. and US Territories) . Anyone who applies for a CHL, Passes the qualification (shooting test) and criminal background check is issued a license to carry.

Law 2: All NFA items are officially deemed legal to own without NFA stamp, registration, trust or paperwork of any kind. This means ANYTHING can be legally purchased in the same way as ordinary firearms. (retail stores are still required to perform a background check for criminal history)

How do you think these laws would play out in society with regard to national security, personal protection, overall crime ad well as state and local governments?

Let's not waste our time on fantasy or speculation.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
