32. ...

By having background checks so the Jared Loughners of the world would not be able to buy a gun.


Loughner went through a background check and passed it. If he didn't, he could have gotten one off the street

By not allowing guns into places like bars where people get drunk and then argue.

Agreed, I know it's against the law to pack inside a bar in my state, and most places.I doubt we'll see any laws requiring metal detectors/detailed weapons searches at bar entrance though

Or onto college campuses.

Colleges are allowed to set their policies, many prohibit guns on campus. However, that hasn't stopped the criminals from taking them onto campus anyway. Again, you want a gun free zone, metal detectors and guards doing searches at all entrances is the only way to get close to that goal

By limiting the amount of rounds that can be shot from one clip.


By clip I'm assuming you mean magazine. I doubt it would make much difference,the VT shooter accomplished his horrid task with standard 10 round mags.

By limiting assault weapons as we did in the 90s. You don't need an assault weapon to kill a deer.


"Assault Weapon" is a made up term to describe ordinary rifles and shotguns that have been dressed up with a few cosmetic and ergonomic features. They have no extraordinary power that other common weapons don't have.
