  In reply to: There were 4 MM slaves in 1860.  posted by NoVA Dame

suddenly disappear?

Slavery was a status. Legally, they were freed, and there were no longer any slaves in America.

Unfortunately, if Congress were to legally change the status of "guns" to anything else, it wouldn't make a whit of difference. Saying "you're not a slave anymore" is a profound statement. Saying "that's not a gun anymore" is not. It's an apples and oranges comparison.
