Attempting to disarm the American people, in addition to being a bad idea, is pretty much a fools errand. That gives anti-gun people some psychological comfort, since they can always say, “Well we haven’t taken away enough guns.” Even if they passed all the laws they wanted, they will never get them all. A full scale war on guns would be about as likely to work as the war on drugs. Thus, the “if we get all the guns, murder will end” is hard to disprove, since “if we get all the guns” will never happen.
The government can, however, ban all guns from police officers. That’s very likely to work, since the police officers are issued guns by the government, specifically allowed to carry guns by the government, etc.
Police would still be allowed to use non-lethal weapons, including tasers. However, they would not be allowed to carry anything that could kill. In 2016, that would have saved over 900 human lives, and quite a few dog lives (it has become standard practice to shoot the family dog during a SWAT team raid.)
In addition to saving lives, such a change would lead to a better example for civilians. If those who many people (inexplicably) look up to simply stopped using lethal force, it would stop the constant psychological justification of lethal force. Every cop carrying a gun is sending a message that “It’s okay to go after marijuana users and traffic law violaters with lethal force.” Imagine changing that image to, “Lethal force is never right.”
We can’t ban guns, but we can ban guns from cops. If elected, I will sponsor legislation to disarm most or all federal law enforcement.
