The real question is why? Who has what to gain? What advantage is gained? Will it reduce crime? No, Will it remove guns out of the hands of criminals, gangs....?,No. So again explain how further erosion in the rights of law abiding citizens accomplishes anything what so ever?
Some day reality will trump progressive liberal nonsense.
And now the anti gunners will again tell us "no...we don't want to ban guns....we just want common sense gun control.........that bans all guns...." Oh, they always leave off that last part......according to plaintiffs who want a judge to toss out a state law requiring all new handguns to be equipped with technology that “stamps” each shell casing with a traceable mark. . . .
If new guns can’t be purchased, older ones that are grandfathered in under the microstamping law will cost more, said John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center. That takes square aim at the Second Amendment rights of the poor, he said.
“The problem is the people who need guns the most and benefit the most from owning guns, poor individuals in high crime areas, are priced out of the market,” Lott said. “Who do they think they are disarming as a result of the law? It is minorities in poor crime areas, not some wealthy guy who can afford to purchase the firearms at a higher cost.”
I read that article. What a self absorbed wank it was, all the while denying realities too painful to address about magazine size.
Magazine size counts in mass slaughter. It's not really needed anywhere else. I bet I've slaughtered more animals with rifle and shotgun than most, if not all, here. Must be getting up into the thousands.
Never with a mag capacity greater than 5, which meant animals escaped in the reloading pause when the mag emptied.
However, in discussions with keen US shooters the honest ones have said the high US firearms fatalities rate, compared to other developed countries, is a price they are quite prepared to pay to keep the present level of access to firearms.
Here's an attempt to analyse the possible effects of some control measures in historic cases.
Gun Control And Mass Shootings: Would Lives Be Saved?
Gun Control And Mass Shootings Would Lives Be Saved True Cost - Analyzing our economy government policy and society through the lens of cost-benefit
An analysis of every US mass shooting over the past 30 years shows that two small policy changes, restricting high-capacity magazines and introducing stringent background checks, might have saved over 500 injuries and deaths, reducing total casualties in mass shootings by 50%.
