64. It has always been about culture

that is true of Canada as it is here.

I hope we are agreeing here.
Alot needs to be done on the social scale, economic scale, education and infrastructure to reduce violent crimes and firearm deaths.
I recommend a little polishing to the current gun control laws to specifically reduce deaths related to accidents, homicides and suicides. Maybe we can improve what we have and continue to reduce the deaths.
Again, the majority of criminologists who study the issue found gun laws do nothing, some found they make things worse. Your hypothesis is the view of a small minority.

Background filters for specific guns?
I was just making a proposal.
Sounds like this one is not a good idea.
It was interesting to read up on the FDR law that taxed the guns.
A little Orwellian back in 1934. Control the guns by increasing the taxes to an absurd rate.
And it set a SC precedent, no wonder everyone is not happy about any discussion about a new law.
US v Miller didn't set any real precedent, all it said was that a sawed off shotgun wasn't protected because it wasn't a military weapon. It was also a one sided case, since Miller died and no one representing him showed up. BTW, that same shotgun is "unrestricted" in Canada. Meaning, it regulated the same as a hunting rifle, and any 12 year old, with a minors permit, can buy ammo and walk around in the woods with it without adult supervision. Mom and dad can buy it online and have it shipped right to the house.

Here, many of those shotguns are NFA weapons, as would a single shot rifle with a 15 inch barrel.

My compromise on the federal level is to move all but machine guns and destructive devices, as defined in the NFA, to title one under the Gun Control Act. Also we should adopt silencer regulations based on UK, New Zealand, Norway, and France.
I'll give you a shall issue FOID or automatic NICS check with DL, like motor voter registration. Pass the check, a code is put on the DL. Of course, you will have to get all the states to go along with it. While FFLs will check it, since that information will be on the 4473 anyway, encourage individuals to ask and look for the code.
Also, states do a lousy job of reporting involuntarily committed individuals to the FBI.
