Researchers recommend steps to curb gun violence, and politicians write legislature to ensure it.  But, the violence continues.  Why?  The same reason that we have an opioid crisis despite legislation banning drugs:  Legislation is not the answer!

Criminals have to comply with legislation for it to be effective, and by their very nature, they don’t.  So, only the law-abiding, who are not a problem to anyone, comply with the laws.  They get disarmed, the size of their magazines limited, the types of guns restricted, their backgrounds checked, their fingerprints records, their license fees demanded, and….they weren’t the problem in the first place.  But now, further disarmed, are easy targets for the criminals that laughed at the laws.

Does anyone really expect criminals to eschew higher capacity magazines?  To give up their illegal guns?  Of course not.  So, the gun violence problem remains, and may even increase as citizens are disarmed, calling politicians to create even more ineffective laws.  And the disarmament of the law-abiding continues, while the criminals’ power unilaterally increases.  What BULLSHIT!
