He publicly admits to buying politicians, that he will continue to buy them if he gets his way, and the country cheers him for that.

Is that good?
No, it's not good. What he's doing is far worse than what any Russian "trolls" supposedly did. Donors owning politicians is anti-Democratic, to say the least.

There is a murderer problem, not a gun problem.

If one has had a personal protection order filed against them , they lose their rights to a firearm for 5 years after the order has expired. At that time theyneed to go up in front of a board to access if they can have their rights returned to Once these are implemented the firearms control debate is done. If a tragedy happens the blame goes to the person , not the tool used. I know many of my suggestions have violated Constitutional rights, but currently that is what theanti gun crowd wants to do anyway. I feel if we violate these rights both sideshave come to a compromise and it might actually do something to curb theviolence. There are always going to be bad people out there willing to do badthings, so we will never see all violence go away
This does not work.
If they committed a crime with their gun just once it’s already too late. Which is what happened in every tragedy. You have people flying under the radar (or the radar is broken) that are waiting for their one shot. If you don’t try to prevent this one shot, all other rules are out the window.
Ban anything with more than 5 bullets, ban any guns larger than a pistol, crush the black market and unlicensed deals, put gun restraining orders on people that show unrational behavior to authorities. No one NEEDS things that are designed to kill.
