However, there is a very simple solution to this particular problem. Don't bother people. This jackass fucked around and found out.
Last December, a maintenance worker named Cesar Montelongo was checking on frozen pipes at an apartment complex in Texas when he was shot through a window by a resident who mistook him for a burglar. The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide. I couldn't find any info on what happened with the case after that. Maybe the resident faced justice, maybe not. But when so many people have guns and feel empowered to use them in this way, innocent people die as a result. I imagine most of those deaths don't make the news.
As for the man who had the misfortune of being a brown skinned hard worker in Texas, the family is suing the apartment complex and the loser who murdered him.Family of Grand Prairie worker killed while checking burst pipes sues apartment, shooter

If I understand your argument correctly, changing the law is pretty much impossible so the majority of Americans who want change should just shut up and accept that innocent people need to continue to die in this country to protect the profits of gun manufacturers and fearmongers. Is that right?
You nailed it.
