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.

jbee;555038I am sure if there was a Marine with a knife and concealed .45 sitting in the front row said:
Best anyone can honestly say with complete certainty is that MAYBE a CCW holder sitting nearby might have stopped the Arizona shooter before he killed X number of people and wounded Y number instead of killing 6 and wounding 19.

Would it have helped? Very possibly. But how is this related to the OP?
I agree with let's enforce the laws on the books and leave legal firearms owners the heck alone.
In the situation where you were legal and now are no longer legal because of a choice you made or you are no longer of sufficient mental capacity, then maybe having a firearm isnt the best thing for you.
