Gun Control: A Modest Proposal

Warren Kinsella had this to say a couple of days ago:

According to the Globe, the gun control system is now being “targeted” - tell that to the 14 families who recall what happened at l’Éole Polytechnique in Montreal on December 6, 1989. Tell the families of these women that Canada’s system of gun control is not, quote unquote, “a meaningful law.”

He followed this by printing the names of the women who were killed that day; this, of course, is very much a sensationalist way of getting a point across and doesn’t focus on the real issue: the list of people killed in automobilie accidents would be longer, but is unlikely to create the same sense of outrage among readers.

Two basic points to be made here: first, gun control is absolutely necessary - absolutely; second, the current system has spiraled out of control and is not a realistic way of implementing a system when it’s already too late.

I present here my basic platform for an implementable gun control system:
