Here's buckwheat posting non-stop about gun control without considering how or where the bad guys get them. Most convicts on parole or documented criminals cannot be anywhere near a gun. Does that stop them?
Nothing has changed. Outlaws have always had guns. This is why back in the old west, everyone had a gun for protection. It was a survival tool.
Did prohibition stop drinking? It actually expanded. Same thing has happened with guns which are smuggled into this country by the thousands and can be bought on a street corner. Government has been asleep at the wheel for decades and now all of a sudden they declare the problem is guns.
Dems are so simpleminded to think that gun control is a simple fix and then lalala we're safe. There are some restrictions that make sense like having machine guns mounted on your pickup truck.
It's congenital. Too bad there's not more "con" in that word. And as you allude, the problem is not an inanimate object (hey libs, try this experiment with a bread knife: lay it on the bread board and command it to slice a sandwich all by itself. Post your results here.), it is something much more serious.
