Blue States Should Outlaw Guns And Pay Rewards To People Who Report The Scofflaws

I have heard this brought up multiple times in videos and podcasts.
Without trying to create too fine of detail, this is the idea. Blue states where Democrats control the governorship and the state legislature should pass laws outlawing AR-15's immediately and offer rewards to people who anonymously report gun ownership by others.
The premise is the same as the anti-abortion bill in Texas. Citizens would sue gun owners for breaking the new state law. If they win the suit they would receive 10,000 dollars.
It's hard to see how such laws would be any less credible than the Texas abortion law.
Abortion is a constitutional right , and so is gun ownership. But conservatives seem to think the abortion law is ok, so then a law barring AR-15 ownership must be ok too.
I'm sure we can all agree about that.
