We have an extreme problem with gun violence. And extreme problems call for extreme measures.

First, we need to vote out all politicians standing in the way of gun control measures. Their argument that gun violence is a mental health issue, not a gun issue, is not valid. There are people with mental health issues in other countries too, but only in the USA gun violence is a big issue. The reason is that guns are so widely available, as opposed to other countries.

Therefore, we should outlaw the sale, AND RESALE, of all firearms and ammunition for the general public. The only exception would be firearms using rubber bullets and their ammunition, which would remain available for self-defense. The sale of personal body armor, such as bulletproof vests, should also be outlawed.

Also we should work on developing other non-lethal weapons.
