This sort of response reflects the self-serving, excuse-making determination to avoid solutions and is not worth a response.
If an actual criminal wants a gun, he can steal a cop's gun or burglarize a couple of houses and get some. He can even make his own in a few minutes. All he needs is the ammo. There are countless ways to inflict great bodily harm on someone. How will you ever be able to eliminate all of them?

So, your argument is that you do not believe a ban will occur even though it has occurred previously (similar bans have been effective and lawful) and you are arguing that the ban would be useless because there are alternatives to semi-autos. If these alternatives are so reliable, then no one should oppose a semi-auto ban.
Luckily, you are not in charge of decisions on this scale and faulty logic such as yours will not stand. Change will come because the entire pro-gun thinking is faulty, self-serving, and fictional.
Local jurisdictions can not ban guns in New Mexico.


Text of Section 6:
Right to Bear Arms

No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.[1]

The discussion, in case you missed it, it not about banning all tools of lethal assault. However, thanks for demonstrating the profoundly confused thinking that has pervaded American gun culture.
If your argument had any validity at all, there would be no difference between firearm violence among all the Western countries that have varying regulations concerning firearms. Just consider comparing firearm death and injury in Detroit, MI to Windsor, Ontario (just across the river from Detroit).

Canadians are not Americans. They have different cultures. Remember the Burr-Hamilton duel? America was founded on the smell of gun-smoke, including the killing of politicians by other politicians. Burr–Hamilton duel - Wikipedia

All of England is effectively a "gun free zone". I wonder why they don't have weekly mass shootings?

Nonsense. Your argument is that firearm violence is a way for politicians to solve interpersonal disagreement?
Canada is more similar to the US than any other culture. Once more, the pro-gun "reasoning" is shown to be pure nonsensical fabrication and a desperate attempt to imitate reason.
