If I could, I'd outlaw (or at least much more highly regulate - class 3 stamp/NFA, etc) all semi autos and handguns other than specifically designed revolvers.I really like Australia's approach:
In the wake of the killing in Uvalde, here’s what America can learn from Australia’s response to tragedy.www.vox.com
Guns are fun as a hobby or for hunting or collecting, but there's no reason to own an automatic or a semi-automatic weapon, especially like you said, how it really has no place in society these days. Although handguns have the highest usage rate in mass shootings:
Handguns are the most common weapon type used in mass shootings in the United States, with a total of 158 different handguns being used in 108 incidents between 1982 and January 2023.www.statista.com
It's very tricky. I know people who have guns from like the Civil War. You can 3D print guns these days. Black market guns are apparently pretty easy to come by. Full eradication seems difficult, but curbing it like Australia did seems to have helped. Easy problem to solve in theory, super tricky problem to solve in practice.
