    If someone proposed a law that (a) gun ownership would require a license and (b) gun owners with a license would be required to purchase new firearms every three years to replace their existing ones, or else lose their license and have their weapons confiscated, I'd give you good odds the NRA, these days primarily a lobby group for firearm producers, would be at best silent about the issue or would actively promote it. Concerns about the government taking away guns would go out the window. And why?

    Requiring everyone to buy more firearms if they want to legally keep them, that's a money-making machine.
