If only there was just another gun control law. We are being told (again) by lawmakers that another new gun control law is absolutely necessary to reduce crime. There are already over 23,000 State and Federal gun control laws that apparently have not netted the desired results, so why would anyone think criminals will finally crack if only another gun control law is passed?
The facts are, in spite of all the gun control laws that have been passed to “stop crime”, criminals are still living and working and prospering all over
Legislators who disagree need to provide us with independently verifiable proof that their next proposed gun control law will actually convince criminals to quit their jobs and become law abiding citizens.
May I make a suggestion? Rather than pass more gun control legislation, the legislature should pass a good shall issue carry law.
We know that a couple of well placed shots from a .357 magnum or a 45 ACP are extremely effective to reduce the criminals’ profit while greatly increasing their cost of business. However, the above business model must be immediately applied to the criminal by their intended victim at the time of the attack. The police can not arrive in time to stop the criminals attack (or they would be stopping all attacks).
Several hundred thousand random citizens can begin putting criminals out of business right at the source of the crime. Criminals will decide to change jobs only when the consequences are immediate, personal, and very costly. As we know, thousands of gun control laws do not, and can not do that and neither will the proposed next one.
