I don't think they lack the ability at all. I think they lack the incentive. They have an agenda, and that agenda is to convince us that firearms are the tools of the devil. How can they do that if a firearm is the only thing that saved granny's life?
Using arbitrary numbers, how can they take 50 firearm deaths with 30 of them being self defense or LEO actions and convince the world that guns are used for evil means? They can't, so they leave out the self defense and LEO parts. This is going to sound wrong, but I'm just grateful they are looking at guns. If they took on a real killer we would all be walking or riding horses.
