Some citizens sir. Other than that, I think you make a common sense attempt at solving the problem.
I can't see the problem, it's pure administration, you pass law, it states the amount and type of ammunition a person can buy, where he can buy it from ( a responsible source), at the forst attempt to buy ammunition, the person has to register his gun, it's engraved on the butt with the licence number and zip code, this creates a paper trail on that weapon.
This is similar to how Canada works, for the most part. An AR-15 would fall into all the stipulations you just made, however I could buy a bigger, more powerful rifle, with the same capacity as an AR and put it in my basement and no one would ever know. The AR isn't really anything special, it's just cool looking.
But these rules wouldn't work in the US because it would violate the entire point of the second amendment. In Canada you can't own a gun for self defense, it's for sport or hunting or no other option. You say self defense on your application and you won't get a license. But the entire point of the second amendment is to protect yourself from a tyrannical government, and if you instituted a policy where the government knows exactly what you have and where it is at all times, thus can come and collect it any time they want, would defeat the whole point of the 2A.
And what you're still not getting, and even Obama wasn't this dumb, is that you try and pass these laws, good luck going down to Texas and trying to enforce them. If you don't understand this then you are reiterating my point that most of the people in here really have very little understanding of the US and this issue.
