    what I've proposed in the past with a "well-regulated militia" based on the Swiss style-- if you want to shoot a "militia" weapon, you join the militia, where you are trained, have to pass a test, and get licensed; then each year you have to re-qualify or lose the license. One such weapon per adult per household, and maybe limit the magazines to two (or whatever) per person. They'd all be on your receipt and inspectable items for the yearly qual shoots.

    A militia member in good standing could get ammo in set quantities each month at the "normal/member" price, non-members pay the heavily taxed price.

    Just more thoughts to kick around.
