A thought about gun control:

What if we treated civilian arms in a similar manner to prescription drugs? Instead of banning specific features, all guns would need to go through a review process before being approved for sale or use in this country. If a specific weapon was too deadly, it would "fail", and not be allowed. Also, in order for a person to buy a gun, they would need to get a permit for the specific weapon they seek.

1. They already go through BATF review and they can and do require changes

If its an design approved for general civilian use, permits would seem to be unneeded.
