Regulations is not banning, it just makes it harder for people to get guns and there shouldn't be anything wrong with that D: People should have to prove above and beyond that they're responsible enough to own a gun. There have already been a lot of good ideas in previous posts, such as maybe people can go to a place run by professionals instead if they want to use guns that they normally wouldn't be able to buy (such as that really big gun biggles posted) but it seems people don't want to change or do anything that could affect them in any way (again though if you're responsible with guns it wouldn't really affect you). A lot of people want whats easier for them personally and what happens to others is someone else's problem. If it works in several different countries then why not try it? It's better than doing nothing
Australia =/= america

ANY law on guns will take a long time to get through the US government, because of the opposition it would have.
Also, passing laws quickly is actually usually a bad idea. Not always, but it leaves doors open to bad decisions.

As to the rest,
