Why do these gun law conversations always take such rediculously pointless tangents? There is only ONE point to be made regarding gun legislation and it is undeniable and without argument:
New gun laws (and ANY new laws for that matter) are only adhered to by law abiding individuals who therefor are no threat to any of us in the first place. People who commit crimes with guns DON'T OBEY LAWS!!!!!!! So they will still aquire them. New regulation only affects those that already socially cooperative. Does anyone REALLY think that when the new laws banning AK 47's gets passed, the crips and bloods of LA are gonna say, "damn! we gotta get rid of our gats now!"
What is so hard to understand about this? Get real people. I know these tradgedies touch us deeply and we get infuriated and feel a natural desire for revenge. But focusing that revenge on those that mean us no harm is wrong. And that is exactly at whom these new gun reforms are aimed.
There is no definitive fix, for evil will be with us always... and it will always find a way to circumvent the law.
I mean prostitution is illegal but it still happens. Should we then make it illegal for a woman to wear sexy clothes while walking down the sidewalk at night? No because the prostitutes will simply find a new way to attract their Johns and the result would simply be that women who are not and have no intention to be prostitutes will no longer be able to walk down the sidewalk wearing sexy clothes.
It just seems so simple to me, I don't know why the gun law supporters can't see that they are playing into the hands of the criminals, not fighting them.
