But we Americans have the Second Amendment to the Constitution to contend with. It reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” To me, that says that the justificati0n for unlimited gun ownership is the presence of militias. But the only militias I know of are far-right extremist groups like the Oath Keepers and the 3 Percenters.
So the first thing we have to do is eliminate the Second Amendment. Then we have to pass laws, as other nations have done, to illegalize the ownership of firearms. Those are both mammoth undertakings that I don’t expect to see completed during my lifetime. Hence my assumption that the number of gunfire deaths will continue to grow.
When to the numbers of people killed by firearms get large enough to force us to act?
