Of course it would not work in America and I am not an advocate of banning all guns but nor will we solve our present problems by nibbling around the edges looking like we are doing something while achieving nothing of consequence.
The real answer lays in revisiting the 2nd Amendment and bringing it more in line with "Field and Stream" magazine, rather than "Soldier of Fortune". The Framers could not have possibly imagined the state of the country 221 years later. Nor could they imagine automatic pistols and assault weapons. Iím sure the arms they had in mind could only be fired about once a minute, if the powder was fresh and dry.
