Honestly I’m a bit shocked that you don’t think a 10% reduction in gun deaths would be a big deal.

I don’t recall saying anything about it being a big deal or not, just that 50% would be definitely significant.

I tend to be careful about matters regarding the enumerated rights. Since history doesn’t record many cases of governments giving rights back to the people after absconding with them.

Politically — as I’m sure you’re aware — repealing the 2nd is completely impossible.

Quite.

So your suggestion that any ‘significant’ reduction relies on this step could quite easily be read as “let’s not do anything about gun control”.
I think preventing 3,000 deaths is significant. It wouldn’t even be that pricey.

See? It just depends on how your define “significant”. It’s a subjective term, after all.
