5. A revolver can be fired faster than 1 round per second.

 

To eliminate guns that can do that, you would essentially have to ban everything except muzzleloaders.

In other words, you'd have to reset civilian firearms ownership back to pre 1800s technology.

Not a very practical solution.

Furthermore, the vast majority of handguns sold in the last 20 years have been semiauto. A ban on semiauto handguns would mean that 75%+ of the civilian handguns currently in existence would become illegal.

Also not very practical.
