While we are at it how about mandatory GPS installed in vehicles to make sure no one is speeding. The GPS can have a unique identifier to make sure the car is not stolen...
We know from studies that a lower speed limit on freeways reduces traffic accident frequency, severity and deaths - remember 55 mph during the gas shortages? And we know that increasing the price of a pack of cigarettes by "X" reduces consumption by "Y" percent, I don't recall the exact figures. We know these things without much controversy.

We don't know that mandatory background checks, UBC and the registration that must follow accomplishes anything. And yet, we have CA gunowners voluntarily suggesting it ought to be law.

Prof. Lott indicates that none of the above "Gun Crime Solutions" actually
reduce crime in the areas implemented.

He posits that the high cost of registration in areas like DC ($125)
might actually INCREASE crime because the people who need a
gun the most to defend themselves and family cannot afford it.

I seem to recall this from his 2016 book "The War on Guns", which I can't
verify at the moment because I seemed to have misplaced my copy.
