The progressives have their eye on the prize........-confiscation-.
Riiight - so we just throw our hands up and say "oh well"?? I'm pretty sure the "prize" in this case is less people getting killed. It just so
happens that people have different opinions on how to go about achieving that "prize". But to say "well, the bad guys ignore the laws, so even
though 1000s of kids are dying every year, we can't do anything about it" is irresponsible at best.
I'm going to make a rather poor analogy which still should be understood.
Every year, across the country, houses and buildings are built and/or repaired, but many are cited for code violations. So ... Do we blame the
hammer? Do we make it harder for every other contractor to buy a hammer?
A gun is a tool, like that hammer. Because a very few 'contractors' misuse that tool, should we punish the millions of other contractors?
There are hundreds of laws already on the books designed to keep guns out of the hands that they shouldn't be in. Those laws need to be enforced. A
good example ... Mark Kelly, Gabby Giffords husband, was refused ownership of an AR, because he planned a straw purchase. Against the law. Will he be
prosecuted? Course not. Just as thousands aren't. That's what needs to change.
