So many details, I do not trust one sided legislation. Why not get a "simpson bowles" type group together to write something. Conservative Dem and Moderate Repub like a Manchin and McCain and then there would still be griping, but details could be known.

The seizure of weapons upon death is completely absurd.
But most of the more liberal types here like giving stuff to the Government, so they should have no problem with it.
