6. The factors you list would impact the cost of gun insurance strongly.

"Smart gun features" would cut the cost of insurance. That effect would likely increase the incentive to develop effective, ubiquitous smart gun features, in my opinion.

Higher maximum muzzle velocity, bullet weight, magazine capacity, and minimum firing cycle time would figure into the risk of owning or selling (transferring in any way, including giving) guns. Lawsuits, including class action lawsuits (that are currently blocked under the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act) would succeed, raising liability costs, perhaps to unsustainable levels for some of the factors in your list.
