It already is unlawful for felons, the mentally unstable, addicts, persons with restraining orders, illegal aliens, etc. to possess firearms and ammunition.
It already is unlawful to transfer possession of a firearm or ammunition to those restricted persons.
It already is unlawful to commit assault, murder, armed robbery, etc.
Criminals, by definition, disobey whatever laws we pass. Passing more laws that only affect the responsible gun owners will never magically cause violent persons to change their behavior.
What we need to do is compare what we're doing today as compared to what we were doing in the relatively peaceful times before the adoption of the Gun Control Act of 1968 (back in the days when a child could buy a handgun from the corner gas station). Most moms were at home raising their own children. Most parents were married -- even those who conceived a child out of wedlock had the decency to get married before the child was born. We prayed in school. We used the words, "Merry Christmas" when we celebrated that holiday.
Today, we have driven God from the public square. Marriage and our unborn children are disposable. Children get tossed out of school for having a religious theme or a US flag on their shirts. Teachers get fired for having a Bible on their desks. We pay women to have children out of wedlock. Our social programs penalize poor families if Dad is at home. Many children have never known their father or have had a stream of a half-dozen"fathers.” We have destroyed the traditional family – the bedrock of a healthy society.
Our problem isn't insufficient gun-control laws. It's too many anti-morality laws. Thank you very much, Mr. Progressive.
The nation's most prominent "constitutional law professor" surely knows all these simple facts. But, facts don't matter to him nor to many of those who voted for him.
We don’t need more gun laws. We need smarter voters.
