Guns don’t kill, criminals do. Gun control does not control crime, only human conscience does.
Obama said, “Without gun laws it is far too easy for criminals to buy guns.” 10-27-2015
Every state already has outlawed convicted felons owning a gun. WITH gun laws, it is far too easy for criminals to get guns because you are not enforcing existing gun laws against criminals possessing guns.
The problem with this law is that it is by and large not enforced or enhanced with another type of action or investigation to ensure that it is enforced.
The fact is that you can buy guns underground, on location and even online. Laws prohibiting guns sales do little to prohibit criminals from getting guns.
400 DEAD; Obama’s response says EVERYTHING
The Chicago homicide numbers for July are in, 65 individuals were shot and killed in the heavily gun-controlled city — marking the “deadliest July in 10 years.” This brings the total for year to nearly 400 — the first seven months so far — compared to a total of 490 for last year in its entirety.
These shootings come in spite of the city’s “assault weapons” ban, “violence tax,” strict rules on acquiring handguns, and micro-management of the number of gun stores in the city, as well as of the locations of those stores.
