“A super-ridiculous-hardcore-crazy-almost-innumerable amount.”

No, a sane person would blame the person pulling the trigger, not an inanimate object. Much like forks make us fat, pencils make us misspell words, or cars cause us to drive drunk. Which point in fact the fatalities of that last one is larger than the gun death numbers. Why are they not trying to ban cars? Hard to understand that mindset.

I don’t think the word ban was mentioned anywhere in this article. That’s the same fear mongering that saw 30 million guns sold during this presidency due to unfounded fears of gun confiscation.

Maybe there are other ways to solve the problem. I like your car anology. Perhaps we should treat guns like cars: license and registration required; yearly inspections; revoke privilege if unlawful.

Great idea. Thanks.

We already have such laws in place just for that very reason. Albeit unconstitutional laws, but there all the same. The last wack job that did a mass shooting slipped through the cracks from the government side of the check. That’s what form 4473 is for, and NICS dropped the ball on that one. That being said if a criminal wants to get a gun chances are he won’t take that route anyway. Laws only stop law abiding citizens and not the criminals. Also owning a firearm is a right not a privilege to be revoked.
