OK, we can concentrate on handguns since they are used in about 50% of murders.

Next 44% of murders are committed by people who know each other.

Murder Circumstances by Relationship, 2010, Total 12,996

- Of which 5,657 (43.5%) by Husband, Wife, Mother, Father, Son, Daughter, Brother, Sister, Other family, Acquaintance, Friend, Boyfriend, Girlfriend, Neighbor, Employee, Employer,

- Of which 7,339 (56.5%) by Stranger, Unknown

Seems to me the first group (43.5%) may be amenable to one type solution and the second group (56.5%) another.

Don't know because I'm not a criminologist but I've enough experience to expect major problems that appear to be intractable can be solved in small pieces.
