Really the only impact this may have is in suicide by gun. It will in no way have any impact on gang crime or remove any guns off the streets.
Its tokenism vote buying for folks that have zero clue about how strict the current handgun laws and regulations are.
My bet is Ben will try and put it on the agenda in a similar fashion to him trying to ban the snowbirds. I bet he'll make some brave claim that there are refugees from war-torn countries that are suffering because they live in fear thinking some male white supremacist has access to a handgun but they just dont know who....He'll claim he has received dozens of calls from people who live in fear every day and hundreds of letters of support....which of course are far more legitimate than the 29,000 BHP petition or the hundreds of letters sent to council over Clover Point, because they weren't legitimately democratic or scientific.
