2. It's a tough row to hoe. Maybe it's not so tough with people in the real world.

But people on a discussion board can be pretty difficult to reason with.

To your suggestions I would add:

-- Forfeiture of guns and gun ownership rights for minor gun incidents, like a negligent discharge, with possible restoral of rights if one passes a comprehensive gun safety course.

-- Permanent forfeiture of guns and ownership rights for proven misuse of guns, ie use to intimidate, to vandalize, use in a violent act, use to shoot out tires, etc...

-- Comprehensive gun safety training required for all new and used gun purchases and transfers. Same for ammo. No card, no gun, no ammo.

-- Where a firearm is sold to a person in a household where there are minors, the owner must affirmatively demonstrate that tools and strategies are in place to safely store the firearms.

-- Children of school age should be provided with gun safety training sessions annually, as we've done in the past with drugs, tobacco, STDs, and driving.

These are just off the top of my head.
