... even though those measures would very likely pass Constitutional muster.

Sure, those laws already exist in one form or another -- but they are far from universal in both the legal statues, funding, and enforcement.

If there are indeed 20,000 laws (which might be possible, given the large number of city, county, state, and federal units of government) then that is a very good reason for overhauling our gun laws to make them uniform and fully funded for enforcement throughout the United States.
