Enforce the Current Laws

Every time there is a mass shooting, or even a simple gun crime the ignorant politicians scream for "more gun laws," even though none of the ones out there work. Even those that might do some good, such as the ones mandating stiffer sentences for criminals who use a gun in the commission of a crime. Those charges are routinely waived to get convictions in other crimes. I call that lazy law enforcement. In Oregon, legislators are yammering for what? More gun laws, of course, meanwhile not enforcing current laws continues apace. As usual, the laws they propose work to make it more difficult for honest, law-abiding people to get their guns, or to get them in action fast enough to successfully oppose criminals with their ILLEGAL guns, who do not OBEY such laws.
