In 1768, the Powers-That-Be Tried and Failed to Seize Americans' Guns. Wash-Rinse-Repeat in 2022.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Reading about history is fascinating. Living our own period of history sucks!

It won't work in 2022.
It'll fail when they try it again in 2237, 3629 and 4152 anno Domini...if the Good Lord allows this cockeyed planet to limp along for a few more millenia!
