You know what would? Eliminating the "drug war" you have supported over and over again here.
Eliminating the drug war would reduce the 10-30% of murders which are estimated to relate to drugs and gangs but wouldn't eliminate them altogether. Groups who operate illegally would still battle over turf.

Somehow eliminating guns from arguments among families would also have a significant impact on murder rates.
