@lauriloo: And how would "more laws" prevent any of those things? Or other already illegal methods?
Canada TRIED to register JUST "long rifles" (pistols already ARE registered since 1936) and it was a multi-billion dollar FAIL.

You want the USA to throw a TRILLION DOLLARS down the toilet to "feel good"? Use your own money...

"So further legislation is unnecessary as criminals and mentally ill people are legally not allowed guns already."

Unless they get the gun from a gun show, Craigslist, a friend or relative, a shady gun store owner (since the NRA made sure the store owners don't have to keep accurate inventory), online, etc.

@holygod
you talk of bias and then use the statistic of vending machines and sharks.

If you want, I'll try to do the calculation of people who are killed by vending machines who have access to vending machines, and people who are killed by sharks who have access to sharks (when I say try, I have no doubt of my ability to do it and explain it, just the availability of the data).

I think you`ll agree that it is a pointless calculation.

Given the proliferation of guns in the US, everyone has access to both long guns and pistols, apart from criminals and mentally ill people who are legally disbarred from having them.

So further legislation is unnecessary as criminals and mentally ill people are legally not allowed guns already.

Also, you might be able to help me here, why is it OK to say "criminals" and not "people with a temporary criminally different ability" when it is dehumanizing to say "the mentally ill"?
