      but wonder who decides what's "necessary"

      I don't think that guns have gotten more evil than say, 50 years ago, its just that there are more desperate people now.

      If your political system gives everyone something to do (a job), and something to look forward to (a prosperous future), most of these problems will resolve themselves.

      Instead, we are oppressed by an unjust system, with a huge number of punitive and unneeded laws (enforced with no application of mercy or common sense) that can sweep up anyone, their family, and ruin lives - a sure recipe for violence.  Getting rid of guns, even if it were possible, will not solve the underlying problems or even alleviate their effects on the vast majority.
