I guess we can discuss the gun issue for ever and nothing will be resolved so I am done. I will leave you with this, the favored solution to gun control is to have the Congress repeal the 2nd amendment. In 1920 the Congress passed, after much pressure from old biddies that knew what was best for the citizens of the United States, legislation to prohibit the production and sales of alcohol with in the United States. This prohibition lasted thirteen years and during that time the laws never slowed the flow of booze, states lost billions in tax revenues, the government passed the Volstead act to add law enforcement to prohibition and alcohol was imported into the US by the ship load. The government lost billions of dollars trying to stem the flow and the production of bootlegged alcohol. Meantime people were driven underground to speakeasies to get a drink and party and the criminals were having a hay-day producing and selling illegal alcohol. Gangs were constantly having turf wars. Finally in 1933 the Congress had enough and repealed the 18th amendment.
My point being I can't help but think any gun control amendments to the constitution would suffer the same fate. I do think reasonable people can come to a reasonable solution.
