This does not mean the end of the Second Amendment. We can respect gun and hunter rights and still curb gun violence. Australia has done it. Other countries have done it.

Other Opinion: Gun control advocates need to push issue at American polling places
[“Australia has done it”? By confiscating almost all semi-auto long guns? That is not allowed by the Second Amendment.
Guns “in common use” are specifically called out as being protected in the Heller decision. And if you want to look at the Miller decision only guns with a militia purpose are protected. Hence a confiscation scheme like Australia’s would be illegal and would be vigorously resisted in this country.
Furthermore the Second Amendment does not protect hunting. So don’t bother bringing that straw man up.—Joe]
