Here’s their plan | The View From North Central Idaho

If anyone ever tells you "no one wants to take your guns" you can just point them at the NYT or any number of other people that have some vague thought of "ban guns" without any thought given to how that might actually be carried out. And we, rightly so, claim they don't understand what would be involved in such an effort.
Here is someone who as thought it through a bit more. And note that they envisioned Act II Step 1 as happening today, December 11, 2015:
What has to go?
All magazine fed, self-loading firearms.
Yes, that means handguns too.
Yes, that includes your 4 shot Remington hunting rifle.
…
Act I Step 1:
The POTUS issues a EO, commanding the BATFE to "audit dealer records" - ie, look for "strawman sales" by reviewing each of the dealers Form 4473 records.
This is actually easier if the dealer has adopted the eForm 4473
For handwritten forms, an OCR scanner would be carried, the form scanned, and information corrected on a laptop prior to the next scan.
What can't be done? Is hold a news conference.

So much fail.. Paper 4473 are only retained for 20 years by the FFL. This does not account for the 100+ million guns in circulation prior to 1995 nor does it account for any private sales. Simultaneous door to door of 110 million+ gun owners without anyone knowing? Yeah that's possible...

Also the minute one gun gets confiscated by some one who cares the news will get hold of it. They can't do it anyway so good luck. Another moron spouting off.

Roughly 5k BATFE employees, and 2400 +/- are agents. Over 100k FFL holders in the USA. The BATFE agents are going to hand-scan old forms, then do an analysis? Just the audit alone would take months, or years - meanwhile people will continue to buy guns. Then he assumes the National Guardsmen would be compliant and willing to assist in door-to-door searches of their family and friends, neighbors and fellow Americans. There is a lot of fail in this blog, based on unrealistic assumptions.
