In 1996, Australia enacted a law under which 700,000 guns were collected and retired from use.

A person wishing to buy a gun in Australia has to wait 28 days to get a license to own it, and family members in his household can be questioned by police before a license is granted.

I am contacting the U.S. Senate, encouraging them to enact such a law.
