Confiscation is a stupid idea. The best thing to do is ban an item then selectively confiscate when someone decides to use the banned item. There may be a huge number of the banned item available, but if no one is using them, they can be considered “self-confiscated.”
That is why many of us see very little difference between “lesser” actions like registration, and outright bans or confiscation. All have the same goal.
The whole point to gun control initiatives are confiscation, and total civilian disarment.
Don’t belive me, just ask Joan Peterson!
