Sure it would. Banning guns would have stopped Jared Loughner and Adam Lanza and James Holmes and the woman in Texas who killed her two daughters to get back at her husband, and people who used their gun in road rage incidents. All had guns legally bought.

You can make guns available only to police and the military.

The big thing I think everyone might be overlooking is that everyone is still looking to Washington for solutions.
We really need to be looking in the mirror for people to fix what is wrong and not rely on anyone, anything, partisan or not for fixes.
FACT: Guns are found in less than 0.2 percent of stops. That is an unbelievably poor yield rate for such an intrusive, wasteful and humiliating police action.
However, the general practice of stopping and frisking civilians is not unconstitutional, and research shows that doing so can help reduce crime — but only as part of a broader, clearly articulated strategy that targets real criminal activity.
