It can *always* be edited.

I recall an SF novel that had data going to uneditable storage. And there were weird things going on. Finally turns out that the bad guys just played the data from the storage into a *new* storage units and did the edits on the output stream before it went to the new storage unit.

There are ways to make that harder, but in the end there'll *always* be ways to fox the data. All you can do is make it arbitrarily more difficult. And it gets more expensive faster than it gets more difficult.

Two data points that keep getting ignored:

1. Switzerland. Every adult male has an *actual* military assault rifle (as opposed to the invented for propaganda "assault weapons" the media keep talking about). What's *their* rate of gun violence? Especially of massacres.

2. there's a strong correlation between strictness of gun control laws and the amount of gun violence in various places in the US. But it's not what you'd expect. The stricter the laws, the more gun violence.

These two data points make it quite likely that it's not the guns that are the problem. It's the *people*, the *culture*.

BTW, do you know *why* places like NYC first adopted gun control laws? To keep guns out of the hands of blacks.
