Y'all make the problem sound pretty simple when you're trying to grab the guns.
A society that apply social sciences to reduce bad statistics tend to do both. It's possible that a great rise in taxes to pay strong social programs would allow for a great reduction in firearm murders but I have yet to see someone who are pro-firearms voicing a such solution.
