5. Anything currently proposed would be ineffective

If the party has to take the PR hit and rile up the right-wingers anyway shouldn't it be something that could actually make a difference?

Handguns account for something like 85% of gun violence yet no proposed law addresses restricting them.

It's a waste of time in the current environment because they can't even pass toothless laws that wouldn't have an impact.
