I just don't see the point of gun control unless every gun is taken out of the equation, and that will never happen, no matter how many laws are passed.
Cost-benefit analysis - 10 dead kids are too many but it is better than 20 dead kids when the trade-off is not being able to go hunting for squirrels with an AR-15

But this is an academic exercise in speculation - nothing is going to get passed by this Congress
