    If gun confiscation saves the life of one child (case study)

    The majority of gun deaths in this country are committed by those that could never pass a background check and many of them with illegal or stolen weapons.

    The unfortunate actions of a few mentally deranged and poorly parented individuals gets the bulk of the media attention even when those terrible incidents are more rare than the media and politicians will admit.

    The actions taken by the state of New York and much of what Obama wants to do will only embolden criminals and put the public at greater risk. This isn't a knee jerk reaction; this is flopping around on the floor like a dying fish.

    Ban assault weapons when and if they can agree on a definition of what truly is an assault weapon. Enforce the background check laws and expand them to gun shows, but to go much farther is a political over reaction. If I hear one more politician justify backing these changes with the comment that 'elections have consequences' I think I will literally throw up.

    We are rapidly approaching the state where the criminals will be the only ones with weapons and sadly they won't need them.
