I have not touched on the topics surrounding mental evaluations, as I know that is a very tricky topic given privacy regulations. Nor have I touched on the topic of illegal guns / gun ownership, as I view that as a different beast with other socioeconomic components. - desemmler

------------------

So you are ruling out the two areas that have the only chance of actually addressing the problem. Creating more hoops for otherwise law abiding gun owners to jump through is just feel good legislation that accomplishes nothing to affect the problem in a positive way.

And I say "positive way" because some of the proposals do have impact but in a negative way by making it harder or impossible for regular citizens to defend themselves and their families from criminals who won't obey whatever gun laws are passed anyway.
