17. because

1) it takes the focus off of the real issues, and scapegoats people who have nothing to do with the problem. Also, they don't get the guns legally anymore than they get their drugs.

2)See above, and your statistic is for all homicides combined. Also, the terrorists in San Bernadino did not get their guns legally under California law. Would it matter if they got machine guns from the black market like the attacks in Europe? Would it matters if they used homemade flamethrowers? Even before NICS, criminals rarely went to gun stores and even more rare did they go to gun shows. Besides, more people are beaten to death by the "unarmed" than all rifles combined, let alone "assault weapons".

All of them are different issues with different causes, and thus all have different and complex solutions. Restricting civil liberties or Constitutional rights for the vast majority of people who do not engage in any of these, and never will, is not only ineffective but illiberal.
