Okay, but how? I'm not trying to be antagonistic, it's that I don't think more laws making guns less readily available will make existing laws intended to make guns less readily available more effective. I do think technology is a more viable solution.You can certainly make it easier for enforcement though by making the illegal guns less readily available.
Smartphones have done a pretty good job ensuring only it's owner can operate it. Why can't similar technology be utilized to address auto theft, gun safety, and a host of other activities that rely on an individual user?
Fear? I don't think it's a fear. I think everyone agrees that gun owners should be responsible for their weapons.I don't understand the fear of just making sure responsible gun owners are responsible for their weapons, most of these guns were once legal guns.
But again - how do you propose that responsibility be ensured?
The Philadelphia shooter is a felon with multiple convictions. This wasn't his first rodeo.Also laws prohibiting felons don't help at all when the person has yet to commit the felony. If I am killed in a robbery I wont feel better knowing it was the robbers first felony.
