Quote of the Day: Prohibition.

On bans:
‎"Here’s the fact – bad people are going to have guns. And if you’ve ever smoked a joint, you are disqualified from arguing that prohibition works."

The kind of police powers required to make guns harder to get in the US than pot would make this country a blushing police state. Recall that there's already more than 300 million guns in the country, that we have wide open borders that are already subject to considerable smuggling, and that firearms themselves are simple enough to make.

Here's more on the immense logistical hurdles on what it would take to fully ban guns in the US.

Not that they couldn't try to do it by inches.
