For starters, perhaps the great majority of gun control measures won't work because in some way or another they attempt to prohibit a citizen from owning and bearing weapons that are used by military infantry soldiers, and so should be considered off-limits because the main purpose of the 2nd Amendment is to promote a well regulated militia, which was, and should still be, considered to be armed with weapons that are comparable or identical to regular army troops. Since both rifles and side arms were the most obvious arms carried by any infantry, laws seeking to restrict these types of weapons should generally be considered unworkable.
