I sort if understand what you are saying, but the reality is that with 300,000,000+ guns already in circulation and more being sold every day the “no guns” ship has kind of already sailed.
Also, realize that most gun violence in this country is not of the type which occurred in some of these high profile shootings, but is most often one on one old school criminal activity. Regardless of what impact reducing guns may have on these very limited mass shootings I feel pretty confident that the average criminal will find a “tool” to get the job done.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
