I think gun control requires federal involvement in most cases. It's too easy to navigate state bans and state regulations by going to other states and bringing them in.

Based on the assumption that the greatest reductions in fatal violence
would be within states that were required to institute waiting periods and background
checks, implementation of the Brady Act appears to have been associated with
reductions in the firearm suicide rate for persons aged 55 years or older but not with
reductions in homicide rates or overall suicide rates.
