Your proposed solution to the “bad guy” problem is to a) deceptively rename it a “gun problem” and b) punish the “good guys” with additional gun-control legislation — remember, genius, that only the “good guys” will be affected by your confiscation efforts since the “good guys” are the ones who actually obey laws.
Or is complete disarmament of the honest citizenry your real intent to begin with?
At any rate, if that is a shining example of your very best problemsolving skills, you have no business in any position of social or political leadership, especially not if four simple words (“shall not be infringed”) are completely beyond your comprehension.
Upon entering office, you swore under oath to uphold the Constitution, and whether or not you personally approve, the Second Amendment is still part of it.
If you egotistically believe you’re smarter than the founding fathers and you wish to change that amendment, then, by all means, work legally toward that goal. But as long as the Second Amendment is the law, if you cannot or will not uphold it, then resign! Get the hell out of office, and let a responsible adult actually solve the problem.
