Старая, но довольно интересная идея.. Особенно в свете последних событий..

Vermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as Vermont 's own Constitution very carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in New England and elsewhere.

Maslack recently proposed a bill to register "non-gun-owners" and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state. Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun.

Только одна проблема - первоначально гражданскими правами обладали только свободные мужчины (в смысле не рабы и не женщины). Черт с ними с рабами, но как быть с женщинами? Вроде как равноправие? Придеться включать Тату в ополчение и дать ей М-60 поносить.
