Well actually

Actually it's easy to enact sweeping changes, at least in concept.
Step 1. Raise five billion dollars. Ten would be better.
Step 2. Buy a solid majority of politicians at every level - state, local, and federal. Citizen's United made this easy. You don't even have to try to hide the corruption anymore.
Step 3. Make sure that they understand that to stay bought they have to enact sensible gun control measures.
Step 4. Win!
It's a lousy system but it's the system we're stuck with. And it's the same game the NRA has been playing for decades. If we're going to play that game, at least it would be in service to good public policy.
