I fully agree that the "why" is ultimately the key, but removing the "how" has been shown to have significant short-term benefits in other places.

I believe that is undisputable (by any rational person). This has been proven to work in other places. It may be more difficult in the US, because of the number of guns in society, but there's no reason to believe that it wouldn't ultimately be successful, as it has been in other places.

The opposition to this course of action comes from those who, for whatever reason, prioritize their Second Amendment rights over reducing the death toll. Those reasons are numerous and complicated, of course, and possibly irrelevant - the fact is that, while the majority of Americans take that position, nothing will change.
