Fred Mashlack is known with respect to the suggestion to register the non-gun-owners in order to make them to pay dollaR500 fine for not participating in the public activity in stopping banditism and terror. The first notice found refers to year 2009. .
Notes about non-official character of the suggestion are available .
The idea about guns, attributed to Maslack, usually is qualified not as a real law project, but as an idea that deserves the consideration and the discussion. Although the proposal by Maslack does not look as official, many authors believe, that the amount of registered guns in hands of the civil people should exceed the amount of unregistered guns in hands of criminals. It is believed that idea by Mashlack should be applied in Russia and other post-soviet countries. In 2013, the reminiscence of the proposal by Maslack in the Russian blogs is also observed. .

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2009. 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 dollaR500 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 dollaR500 for the privilege of not owning a gun. Maslack read the "militia" phrase of the Second Amendment as not only affirming the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as a clear mandate to do so. He believes that universal gun ownership was advocated by the Framers of the Constitution as an antidote to a "monopoly of force" by the government as well as criminals, Vermont 's constitution states explicitly that "the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State" and those persons who are "conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms" shall be required to "pay such equivalent." Clearly, says Maslack, Vermonters have a constitutional obligation to arm themselves, so that they are capable of responding to "any situation that may arise."

The buyback is estimated to have reduced the number of guns in private hands by 20%, and, by some estimates, almost halved the number of gun- owning households.
