Americans are unable to admit that these mass shootings are the result Cultural problem, not a legislative one. Even if laws were to be enacted that met the demands of gun critics, it would still not do anything to change the deepy-seeded culture of toxic aggression and alienation that fuels these shootings.

Even now in states with much stricter gun laws, the black market is providing anything illegal. So ultimately if one were determined to aqcuire the weapons, the laws themselves would do little to stop it.

The resulting situation would be that people who are actually trying to follow the law and protect themselves would find it much harder to, while those purchasing from black markets would have little to no problem.

Not to mention that the government is already helping the fascists fight Anarchists, imagine if they grabbed all the guns too. I think a good example of why gun control won't stop violence/bigotry/racism/sexism is to look at the prisons. There is technically "gun control" in effect there, and the prisons are effectively structured to facillitate embedded racism and social hierarchy while yeilding lots of cheap workers who can't stand up for themselves.

There's a good meme/propaganda thing there:

You want Gun Control? Go to Prison, it's working great there!
