For those advocating gun control, perhaps they need to look back 85 years or so and see how well the 18th Amendment worked. A popular law among the vocal few, in just a short time it proved unenforceable. With millions of guns spread out among the population of the United States, gun control would surly end up the same way.
Since law-abiding gun owners arent the problem, why not make it a law that anyone committing a crime using a gun be given a mandatory minimum sentence, no plea bargaining, period? Lets go after the real criminals, not the law-abiding gun owners who only want to be able to hunt legally or provide protection for themselves and their families.
We have numerous alcohol-related driving accidents every year, and we blame the driver, not the alcohol. Why is a shooting any different?
