A pragmatic approach rather than political is best.
Find the low lying fruit first and go from there.
Nearly every facet of society has proven itself to be able kill whem it wants. With legal and illegal guns.
Just like saying it's impossible to deport the however many millions illegals here, the same can be said for getting all the guns.
It was a bit misconstrued but a rfid chip in a gun would be a start.
I said this a few months ago but like a car fax etc or with hazardous waste, a gun has a manifest. From the day it's first opened till it's melted into an bracelet, the history of that gun is traced.
Toughen jail times for buying or selling illegal guns. Im not sure if there even is jail time for that.
Fine and incentivize a gun shop based on history of the QUALITY of the sale. Your shop seems to have many guns used for crimes? You will have to go before a board and pay some fines.
Better background or background check all together.
Any file with mental health issues no sale and a strict more detailed check. Your doctor and family may be questioned and co sign. You at times need a co signer for friggin furniture but not a high powered weapon?
I have said this many times. Much like money laundering. If you buy x amount of ammo or guns in x period of time, you will be asked to come in and answer some questions. You bettet be able to fully justify your purchases?
Anyone on a terror watch list, foreign or domestic, that is communicated with, there may be a random question before a panel of feds to see what's up.
A very challenging yet informative training and exam is required based upon your age and gun.
A state tax per gun per year. Modest but yearly.
if you are NOT in LEO and you buy armor, you will be cocontacted and have to be vetted on why.
Armor will be taxed yearly.
Much like income, ammo up to a certain threshold is not reportable. Exceed and you must file it with your tax forms.
You must take a course every 2 years on gun safety and updated training. A small fee that goes to a victims fund.
That's just a few ideas for now.
