first, biden/harris introduces the first step to reduction of the original pandemic which is gun related violence. while it wasn’t as expansive as we hoped, it’s a start. the reality is, ppl who are pro anti violence are now learning the more realistic ways of getting rid of guns. if you try and BAN guns, this is not a reality in america. there are too many in circulation. gun owners tend to be passionate and violent and could stoke unwanted reactions.
the REAL path is to treat them how the people treat cigarettes. you shame the fuck out of ownership. you make it cost prohibitive for most users. guns, gun parts, gun cleaning products, and ammunition itself all include a sin tax. a way to reduce “second hand smoke” effects just like it worked for cigarettes. limit the areas even allowed to fire a gun. look how much less america smokes within a SINGLE generation. now you are looked at as disgusting. the SAME could and will apply as gun ownership. you are just looked at as a vile piece of shit. it will work on the upper class. the lower class and minorities will simply be priced out.
this is the only way. places like the uk, canada, australia, and new zealand are pointing and laughing at america. it worked there. it can work in america. TREAT THEM LIKE CIGARETTES. change the very nature of gun culture just like tobacco culture.
