That's not the point. the point is that nearly every civilized country has restricted civilian firearm possession.
The Second Amendment is a legal curiosity, something that is difficult to remove, despite the fact that hardly anyone wants what it does.

We just haven't had sufficient massacres to mobilize the 2nd repeal.
But they'll happen if we keep it long enough.
I think the Supreme Court revisits some of it's more outrageous rulings, and finds that membership in a well regulated militia is a part of the right to firearm possession.
Wait, you mean like it actually says? Curious...............

Maybe convert them all to .22LR?

Specifically name what you want to ban in very clear and precise and technical terms.
Sure. Ban from the US civilian market all semi-automatic rifles that are semi-automatic copies of military rifles. Include the AR-15 there, even though it was actually the precursor of the M-16 et al.

Failing that, ban the civilian sale of .223 cartridges - too much velocity, too small a cross-section, causing serious/fatal wounds upon impact with flesh/bone. Also ban the civilian sale of any other high-velocity cartridges that cause the same kind of wounds - that approximate the ballistic profile of the .223 cartridge.
Thanks from Sabcat

The .223 was adopted by the military to WOUND the enemy, not kill the enemy.

Thank God the shooter didn't use a 30:06 or .308

And it's going to happen, maybe another couple of thousand children have to die, but it's going to happen.
Because the arc of history bends toward progress.
Bullshit....One thing I learned studying history and Politics is this....Never...Ever ...Trust the left.... They lie like a rug.... The ultimate goal of the left is total confiscation of all firearms....

Sorry Goober, as far as I am concerned the left has zero credibility...

And what makes you think the right has any credibility?

Thank you. You are the first one to attempt to specifically state what you want banned.
