  •  New jobs for machinists and toolmakers (2+ / 0-)

    to repurpose the various alloys used in gun components and accessories. There's some high quality alloys that shouldn't be wasted. Besides the iron and steel alloys and the high impact plastics, there might be aluminum or titanium in some of them.

    It would be helpful if we required that confiscated guns, those used in crimes or confiscated due to unlawful possession, must be recycled rather than resold at police and federal auctions. Get them the hell out of circulation.

    Even more jobs for people to manage a national gun registry, gun dealer compliance administration, sales and background data entry, collection, and administration, maintain status end event reports to for  law enforcement assistance and compliance, and even folks to disassemble and sort parts for recycling.

    I see lots of new work for tool and die makers. And loads of other jobs, too.
