That's pretty much how I was. I was young and naive once but then I grew up and realized that politicians don't know shit and usually try to placate their voter base with pork barrel projects and shit like that.
I think the better solution is to strictly enforce 18+ purchasing (and supervision so that parents can't QQ about little Johnny taking out some other kids eye or getting shot at), and put stronger prosecution measures in place for misuse. Partly to scare the shit out of kids who do misuse them but you can't "rule by fear" alone you also need to put some sort of education in place about proper use and supervision and stuff. But like that's ever going to happen. The US is full of irresponsible trigger happy "cowboys" who QQ that the right to bear arms is in the Constitution, but don't always treat the firearms with respect like they should. The way I see it, they have the right to guns, but that doesn't include the right to be a retarded trigger happy "cowboy" who doesn't learn about proper handling, use, storage, etc.
