Gun Control vs. Gun Liability
Unfortunately, it is unlikely that effective gun control by Government can be devised given Second amendment concerns and the current political environment.
How about a different approach:
Pass laws that make gun manufacturers, sellers, and dealers fully legally and financially responsible for the "misuse" of their product for its' entire life! Then, under threat of lawsuit and financial losses for both mass shootings like Newtown and for everyday gun mayhem, the Industry itself would be forced to "self police", and to devise ways to "vet" its' clients very carefully to screen out all but sane citizens who are interested in animal hunting or self-protection.
Surely the firearm industry cannot argue that mass murder of innocents or armed robbery is a legitimate use of their products! Under full exposure to damages and the lifelong expenses of those killed or maimed by their products, the Gun industry itself, which is large and profitable, will find a way to sell only to carefully screened citizens who are of good character - and will probably willingly decide not to sell assault weapons and large ammunition magazines as "not worth the risk".
