Just Half An Hour

That's all it took for gun haters to start demanding more and tighter “gun laws” while trying to raise money on the recent shooting at a college that claimed the life of one professor, as well as the shooter. NO questions asked about whether or not the gun used was legally owned, because that doesn't matter to them. The fact is, it doesn't matter. If the shooter doesn't have a record of any kind, he can legally buy the gun. If he does have a record, he would ALREADY be prohibited from buying a gun legally. What is not said here is that ALL the laws against buying guns for certain people would do NOTHING to reduce gun violence. People who want to use guns for violence will still get their guns, in a back alley, somewhere. What laws are made should be to make it tougher on illegal gun sellers, or more costly, while making it easier for honest, law-abiding people to own and carry guns for self-defense. There are already too many ILLEGAL guns on the streets, in the hands of fools in gangs, and other kinds of criminals. Guns in the hands of honest people would “even things out.” (Gun Mart)
