I'd support any solution other then ignoring the issue and praying that it will go away.

How does a "ban" on anything work?

I'm pretty sure there's been a ban on murder for centuries. How's that working? ● In the U.S, in 1937, the Marihuana Tax Act was passed, and prohibited the production of hemp in addition to cannabis. The "production" just went "underground". ● For a hundred years plus, there's been a ban on "illegal" drug use/sales. That's not working. ● (from Wikipedia) " Prohibition in the United States was a nationwide constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages from 1920 to 1933." (Please, note the word BAN). How'd that "ban" work? ● Although the word "ban" isn't specifically used, the laws effectually put a "ban" on any types of firearms usage/possession by felons. NOT WORKING! ●

So, pray tell, how is a "ban" on large-capacity magazines, or, so-called "assault weapons", affect anyone EXCEPT law-abiding citizens? "BAD PEOPLE" could care less about something being banned.
