Firearms with no serial number are just as “bearable” as the same firearm with a serial number, and there is no “common use” issue here as the presence or lack of a serial number makes no difference with respect to whether the type of weapon is commonly used. Finally, I can find no authority for the idea that a firearm without a serial number would meet the historical definition of a dangerous or unusual firearm.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, v. RANDY PRICE
We don’t require serial numbers on books so why should we have serial numbers on guns? Books and ideas are far more powerful than guns…
Just imagine all the things that could follow from this:
- No gun registration. They didn’t have gun registration at the time the 2nd was written, right?
- Now, what is the point of 4473s?
- With no 4473s I can sell or give guns to anyone that isn’t a known convicted felon.
If this happens, even if only for a year or two, it will make mass confiscation far more difficult for decades even if the bad guys reclaim political power and crank gun control up to eleven..
I expected this would happen eventually but I did not think it would happen this quickly. It might be a little too much too fast for political acceptance. The political left may be able to get some traction in the upcoming elections off of this sort of thing. The danger would be packing the court or some such thing if things move too fast.
