You really think that will stop the perp buying a gun on the street? He or she already does that. It's already a crime for a convicted felon to buy or merely posses a gun. What will one more law do other than try to make millions of citizens into 'criminals'?

It may not stop all perps from buying guns on the street but it will stop some of them, and I will gladly settle for any improvement over the status-quo. Where do you think all those guns are coming from that the perps are buying anyway? They originally came from somewhere and presumably were purchased legally at least once. This is the argument against gun proliferation, it is simple math, fewer guns in circulation equals fewer guns available to for perps to purchase on the streets.


LEt's see...maybe we should try to stop 'illegal drugs' from 'falling' into the wrong hands and ruining the lives of tens of millions of kids and young adults?


I am so weary of this silly argument. Our illegal drug laws are far from perfect, so lets work on them to make them better. You seem to espouse giving up the effort. We can do better with drugs and guns, let's work on both problems.
