Lots of good paying skilled and unskilled jobs, better security, giant education opportunity, it seems like a no-brainer.
Heads would explode on the Right trying to figure out if making our own phones was more American than such a "big gubmnt plot" was un-American, and heads on the left would explode trying to find a way to conceal their own selfish motives. Much the way we've seen this whole election whenever Bernie opened his mouth.
Only weapons suited for home defense or small sidearms can be purchased without a serious commitment to be trained in their use.
Buying a double-barrel or pump-action shotgun would require a background check, short waiting period, nothing too serious, and a day or two or courses and testing on storage, care, and handling.
If you want to be able to open carry an AR-15, though you would need to complete more extensive psychological testing, as well as complete training on how to safely care for, store, and handle the weapon. This kind of training could be completed by a, wait for it, well regulated citizen militia.
To deal with what's already out there, you regulate ammunition. In order to buy any ammunition, you need to provide proof of legal ownership of an appropriate weapon.
These militias would be non-profit, with strict financial restrictions keeping them from lapping up defense industry dollars till they pose a threat to US sovereignty. They would provide training and licensing services for firearm owners, and maintain a moderate standing force that exists, mostly, for the boys to get together and blow off some steam once every month or so.
This is more in the spirit of the 2nd amendment, or at least my favored reading of it, than anything I've seen from either side. I believe the founding fathers wanted a citizenry capable of making its government think twice about doing unpopular things. I also believe they wanted a government capable of adapting to a changing world, of seeing that "well-regulated militia" doesn't mean now what it did then, and that it never meant that the welfare of the people should suffer for one narrowly defined aspect of a single amendment.
you date yourself. Mega corporations are so 90's. The organization by which I employee you would best be described as a crypto government. Generously, a paramilitant NGO.
