A Struggle to Disarm People Without Gun Rights

Interesting article in the New York Times online site.."A Struggle to Disarm People Without Gun Rights".

Not about new or more gun laws, but the struggle to enforce the laws already on the books and the tools
for addressing people who purchased the firearm legally but since have become felons, adjudicated as a mental defective, domestic violence, etc..

My opinion is this issue is critical, but want to guess where the law makers/enforcers will concentrate.....10 round limit for magazines !! A lot easier for them to process and a heck of a lot cheaper.

Good article.

The Tucson shooter was only brought down once he had to reload. Then the score was even between him and everyone else that was there without a gun so they acted and took him down.

The sad thing is that people see that as a reason to limit the number of rounds that one can have in a magazine. All that would happen is that the criminal would carry another gun, get an accomplice or get his hands on an "illegal" magazine that holds more than the law abiding citizen can carry. Criminals don't abide by the law so when the lawmakers make the laws, they're making them for the law abiding citizens.

Ban guns completely and crime would sky rocket because every law abiding citizen out there would not have any means to protect themselves while the criminals still have illegal guns which they continue to commit crimes with.

I strongly feel that gun violence would go down if the only gun laws were against criminals. (Criminals can't own guns, criminals can't carry guns, etc.) Other than that......It's all good. If you're a law abiding citizen, you can carry your gun out in the open if you want, conceal it if you want. Have a 10 round magazine, have a 30 round magazine...It's all up to you.

It's hard to speculate what would have happened had there been a CCW license holder in Tuscon at the time of the shooting, but I would like to think that much less people would have been injured or killed.
