    Let's pretend that there is a magical force that you have found in a cave somewhere. This force can permanently remove all negative gun control laws. As payment, however, you must give up all of yours and cannot own, borrow, or shoot ever again.
    We assume for the sake of this thread that the magical force is guaranteed.

    Would you toss yours into the furnace so that everyone else can keep theirs?

    Sorry, I tend to deal in reality. I'd rather write and call my elected officials to make sure that what we have doesn't get any worse than worry about genies doing it for me.

    Fella's;

    I'm with Kingpin on this one. There are so many ways to misconstrue a hypothetical question such as this, that there's no practical purpose in giving a straightforward answer IMHO.

    For instance: OK, fellow members of the Society To Rid The World Of Nasty Guns, we've got responses from gun owners stating that they'd give up the guns. Nevermind how the responses were obtained, we've got the thin end of the wedge in the crack. Now how can we expand on it?

    Not that I'd think anybody here was actually a shill for that type of organization, but in these times never hurts to watch yer 6.

    Hmm, that's a tough one. If it was a permanent repeal & prophylactic of gun control laws in all countries in the world, then yes, I think I would bite the altruistic bullet and do it. But it'd be hard. If it applies to the USA only, that'd be a tougher call, but probably yes.

    sounds more like a deal with the devil than a wish from a genie...
