"Make them illegal and pat yourselves on the back because you have solved nothing."

I'm ok with that. The NRA is not and it's not because it won't solve the problem. It's because of the fear that ANY step in that direction will lead them down the slippery slope.

There is no step that will "solve" the problem. Same with the mentally ill. Should we do nothing about the mentally ill because it won't "solve" the problem?

Should we do nothing in the way of tightening registration laws because it won't "solve" the problem?

There is no one way to solve the problem and there is , certainly, no one way that will be agreed upon by both sides that will "solve" the problem.

All you can do is take steps on a long road toward alleviating an out of control situation.
