They "want to stem the tide of gun death". That's laughable. Focusing on unenforcable laws will make no difference on gun deaths in a state with already low levels of gun violence.
If they wanted to seriously reduce gun deaths then promoting firearm education starting early, combating screen addiction, and fostering a sense of community instead of isolation would make a bigger difference.
Of course we already know that though and the reason for restricting guns has nothing to do with violence.
I wish we could say the same, death by a thousand paper cuts.
Maybe you could make that statement about firearm technology and the lawmakers ability to keep up. We are used to laws being mute a few years after they are introduced.... You know, incremental technological advancements to give us back what we want.
Which I wish I could be more happy about, but all I see is wasted effort for the most part. Imagine the engineering hours spent coming up with new ways to bypass some stupid restriction a politician put in place... Imagine how better spent that effort could have been.
I do a lot of imagining, we probably would be the jetsons by now if it wasnt for beaurocrats.
