I'm not trying to jump on your phrasing. What I thought you were saying is that the current regulatory structure is closer to a ban than not. I don't think that's even close to being true. In fact, the very opposite is true. Guns, under the current regulations, are being easily sold and bought at record rates.
Now, if you're saying that a gun ban could be proposed, well, I suppose it could.
