2. Sure, those dudes would have thought twice about killing people if they had to register their gun
We need more laws, that always works. Do we even have any gun laws in the US???

Oh, and we need stricter laws about hurting other people. That would solve the problem.

Or we could have national health care and mental health care and deal with poverty. But it is easier to pass laws that punish people than laws to help them.
