It’s funny how US insists that open carry is good and responsible, while concealed carry is evil and dangerous. In Europe it’s the exact opposite.
Unless you’re going straight to hunting grounds or a shooting range, your long guns stay the fuck home in a safe
Or to a gunsmith. Or a gun show. Or a gun store. Or to a gun buyback. Or to meet with your uncle who wants to buy your gun. Or your friend who loaned you her long gun. Or your another friend who knows how to polish the trigger mechanism without making it unsafe. Or to an airport because you are flying to another country for a competition. Or…
And of course every person with bad intentions can lie and say they totally are going to a legit place.
No offense, but if you don’t know much about guns, your law ideas are likely to be silly.
Reducing the amount of rounds a person can purchase would also be a good solution. AFAIC if someone needs more than five rounds they are either (a) a lousy shot or (b) wanting to kill lots of people.
A local shooting club advertises a 6 hours long pistol training. It requires participants to bring 200 rounds each. That is slightly higher than 5 rounds. But I guess the purpose of training is to be a lousy shot or to kill a lot of people.
What’s more, going to a store every time you want to shoot is annoying and ammo is cheaper in bulk. So people typically buy a lot of it at once, more than one event worth.
Maybe raise the prices on ammunition so less people can afford it?
Ah yes, only the rich should be able to afford using guns. The rest of people should either own no guns, or only collect them but never shoot them. Why should people train to safely and accurately use the guns they own?
most gun violence is done with handguns and rifles
Most of gun deaths are suicides, most of the rest is crime. And handguns are better for suicides (easier to aim and press the trigger) and crime (easy to have it on you in case a rival gang attacks or police raids you; easier to hide; easier to run with; one hand can be free).

Agreed. Gun control in the US was historically used against Blacks and other minorities. And considering the US political climate, minorities should definitely arm up. Political efforts and educating people are the most important, but it’s good to have a fallback for the worst case scenario.
Wow, that’s a long post. Perhaps I should have split it.
