“Second, the vast majority of mass shootings and gun violence in general is gang related, not by legally owned firearms and certainly not by law abiding citizens with gun rights. Criminals will always have access to guns and ammo, in fact America has an extremely bad history for trying to ban things and all you will do with this idea would be to create an illegal market for bullets. We currently import over 300 metric tons of illegal cocaine every year, you think cheap bullets will not be shipped in if you make bullets too expensive?”

Bingo! Make owning guns illegal and only criminals will have guns, and there will be lots of them, freely available, just as illegal drugs are freely available now. Gun Reform is completely pointless except as a ritual of virtue-signalling for Left Wingers. They also ignore the the 2 million+ crimes every year that the FBI estimates are deterred by the wearing of guns by the potential victims. When was the last time a mass killing was launched at a Texan Barbeque? Never, because they’s be dead before they killed one or two at most.
