I do think that is the eventual goal.  If the Ds still had a supermajority they might have even tried to pull that off now while the iron is hot...

It would never pass, serious constitutional issues.

I don't believe it is the end game either but many do. No matter what the Dems want we have a thing called the Constitution. I don't think even the liberals on the court would uphold a total gun ban law.
Little things like that  ( ;) ) can be changed with a supermajority.

Not a costitutional ammendment.

There seems to be a lack of clarity about semi auto guns. All (vast majority) pistols are semi auto. Many revolvers are semi auto. Some shotguns are also but most aren't. But if you are using buckshot in a crowded room it doesn't make much of a difference bec it really doesn't take long to pump a shotgun. Rifles are bolt action (takes some time between shots) or the so called assault style rifle. That just means u don't have to do anything between shots. It still only shoots one bullet at a time. It is basically a pistol with better accuracy. But again you don't really need that if you are shooting in a crowded room.

"Mass shootings are not unique to America. But for civilian massacres outside of wartime, we have more than all other nations combined. Of the 25 worst mass shootings of the past 50 years listed in Time this past July, months before Sandy Hook, 15 occurred in the U.S. Of the other nations, only Finland, with two entries, had more than one shooting ranked."

15 occurred in the U.S.
How many of those people belonged in a mental asylum?

Not correct. A semi-auto revolver is extremely rare. Revolvers are single or double action.

Well then that's the real question, how can we improve there and what are other countries doing better in that regard?

Who says they're doing anything better?

Perhaps we're just crazier? :P

You might be right but it is part of the big picture.

Of course it is, I'm just not sure what we can do if Americans are naturally crazier for reasons that cannot be helped...

No, there are semi-auto revolvers.
