Proposed technical solution to gun control. Unlimited gun ownership and all protocols for limiting ownership are flawed. SEE MY WEB SITE for list of flaws and failed societies for each protocol. Instead of adopting any protocol, REDESIGN GUNS. Outlaw guns that do not meet new design standards. During a transition period, promote a free exchange of an old design gun for a new design gun. HUNTING GUNS: Retain double barrel shotguns. Restrict rifles to single shot only, manual reloading between shots. No other hunting guns. Hunters will have to be more careful in choosing their targets and in aiming. MILITARY, POLICE, CITIZEN SELF DEFENSE GUNS: Most armed robberies are committed by small groups of criminals. Many other gun crimes are committed by isolated deranged individuals, either permanently deranged or temporarily deranged by immediate circumstances. Gang violence is discussed later. Design guns so that SIMULTANEOUS ACTION BY 10 PEOPLE IS REQUIRED TO ACTIVATE each gun, impossible to modify guns to defeat this requirement. Once activated, guns AUTOMATICALLY DEACTIVATE themselves after 25 hours. Ordinary criminals and isolated deranged individuals will be unable to find 10 people willing to assist in activating their guns. Military and police can meet once a day at a regularly scheduled time to activate their guns. That is why the deactivation time limit is 25 hours instead of 24 hours, to allow a little slack in the schedule for reactivating the guns. Political dissidents and criminal gangs can do the same. The 2nd Amendment was designed to protect political dissidents. Make activation require and retain biometric identification of all participants, ALL PARTICIPANTS BECOME CRIMINALLY LIABLE for any consequences of activation. That deters criminal gangs. With fewer gun crimes, there will be less need for citizen home defense guns. Borrowing money requires cosigners, so also should using a gun. This solution will not stop large entrenched criminal gangs such as Mexican drug cartels, but it will help in most situations. MORE AT
