Actually he won't because Congress will not pass the enabling legislation to do it.  If he tried, the Republican Supreme Court would rule it unconstitutional.

What he should do is find a way to prohibit guns at polling places for federal elections.

Want to solve the problem of violence then fix our poor moral values.  

Getting injured or killed for asking to wear a face mask. 

Guns aren't the problem...PEOPLE ARE! :angry:

 

Stupid things people are shot and or killed over...

The Florida man who is accused of shooting and killing his brother over a dispute about a cheeseburger.

The Texas man who is accused of shooting and killing a stranger for cutting in front of him at a taco truck.

Another Texas man who is accused of shooting and killing his stepson for jumping on the bed.

A Colorado man who is accused of shooting a neighbor after an argument about feeding squirrels.

The Tennessee man who is accused of shooting a toddler three times after her mother didn't flirt back with him.

Well, I've said it before and so I'll say it again (in mocking the NRA's stance)...

"THESE are all just the prices we must pay in order to ensure that all good law abiding citizens can arm themselves so that when our government turns tyrannical and comes knocking at our door, we can fight 'em off!"

(...AND THEN I always say that ANYBODY who believes THAT is a freakin' FOOL, and because armed rebellion against our government has NEVER EVER resulted in a "good outcome" for those who have tried it...NEVER...EVER...nope, not EVEN when a whole SECTION of this country tried it about a century and a half ago!)

And if they had not had easy access to a gun, they could not have shot.

You know that for a fact?    E.g. they didn't already have these guns,  but decided to purchase them at the last minute so they could strike-back?

They had the guns because of easy access to obtain them before they used them.  Also, easy access to them when they wanted to shoot someone.

Sorry but to me you're still not making sense.    You also said this:  they could not have shot.

How would harder access to obtain them (guns),   have prevented them from obtaining the guns?

Unless these folks have a documented mental illness and are on some type of banned-gun list  (a law CA now has),    or some other type of ban (e.g. they are convicted felons),  all harder access (e.g.  background checks,   waiting periods,  can only purchase one gun every other-month,  etc.) does is delay the ability to purchase a gun.

Hey,   I know you know all of the above.      I'm just pointing out that your push-back to Ham appears to be really weak here.
