How do you think it should be done? No ones in any doubt that when the day comes there's going to be problems, so would you work around and achieve this? I feel it needs to be done in gradual steps, while obviously denying the end goal in early stages. First should be tightening up regulations and adding additional costs. Then as mass shootings happen bring out bans on particular high rate of fire weapons. Obviously this would include a lengthy amnesty period for any such weapons to be handed in for reward. After that the actual ban for that type of weapon would stand, a heavy prison sentence would be enforced to deter offending. Around this point arguments would be pretty strong for a small edit to the amendment. Once that has happened it will be easy to do again. Just repeat and tighten over and I would have that amendment down to handguns only.. Then take that away to. It would be a long slow process over 10 or so years but I think that would work.

Gun control and gun laws are and never will be the answer. If that is true the city of Chicago, who has the strictest gun control laws in the nation, would have the lowest gun related homicides. They don't and a couple years ago had well over 500. Whereas Texas who has the least strict gun laws, has one of the lowest gun related homicides each year. If you still think they are an answer, take a look at history. Before Hitler took over Germany he took away the people's guns. My proposition to this problem is simple. The first is to create a task force who sole duty is to handle the black market trading of firearms. The 2nd would be to have teachers at all public schools, from elementary to college, be police trained in firearms and to conceal carry when at school. That certification would need recertification each year. I would also implement metal detecters at entrances to schools. There needs to be a deterrent to people choosing these places. The other thing that needs to be done is something with bullying. Which seems to to lurk somewhere at the heart of this.
