Iron ore trains in the Pilbara (where there are no hazards other than kangaroos and they won't bother a train that's 10km long) have just gone driverless at a cost of something like $500million.

It's called a buy-back scheme. Worked in Australia. Then anyone owning the now banned firearms (anything automatic or semi-automatic) is breaking the law.
