Gun Control: A Modest Proposal

Three things strike me about mass slayings using guns in the U.S.:
  • the shooters are young males
  • the shooters aren't NRA members that I know of.
  • most of them have multiple weapons.
That leads me to this modest proposal:
  • permit men to buy 1 gun every other year on their birthday, or
  • permit men to buy a gun if they provide proof of being an active member of an NRA club for at least 1 year.
 In theory that should slow down the accumulation of weapons and mean that they're successfully handled social relations with others for a year.

Not that I expect anyone to take this seriously, but I get tired of the fights liberals have with the NRA.
