"However, the level of carnage in America due to firearms is unparalleled in any other developed country." This is so true and the ideas mentionted are a damned good start. An assault weapons ban also must be discussed. It would also be good to require a test and gun ownership insurance before one can own a gun, much like getting a driver's license and being able to drive a car. Keep up the great work. This is a step in the right direction.
