I understand that in the context we live, in which there are many criminals with guns, it may be unfair to stop people from owning them legally. But this is because of the problem of having too many guns in the first place. It seems to me that we should try to find some way of decreasing, over time, the number of guns floating around out there.
Or perhaps the best solution would be to limit the number of bullets produced and make them more expensive.
But I think something needs to be done in the direction of less guns as opposed to more. Can we agree that in the long run this will lead to less gun deaths?

A thought on gun control
[They “dude” is incredibly naïve, simpleminded, or went on a magic mushroom trip and never made it all the way back.
Decreasing “the number of guns floating around out there”? And how would he suggest someone do that? Forbid the manufacture of them then going door to door and asking nicely? I don’t think you have a clue how that might turn out. A reduction in “gun deaths” would not be what history would record for that little exercise.
And the same thing with the ammunition supply.
If this “Einstein” thinks any of his ideas would work then why not try them with recreational drugs and see how that works out. Oh! That’s right. They have tried those sort of things are. Any high school drop out can get whatever recreation drug they want within an hour or two, 24x7x365.
So the answer to his question is, “No!” Now shut up. The adults are talking.—Joe]
