It's the imposition of more and more
gun laws over top of the ones
already there that I have a problem with.
My argument is that there aren't that many restrictions now. At least
in NY, we are a long, long way from a gun ban.
If the existing laws can't be enforced,
why bother enacting new ones?
I agree. There's no point fiddle-faddling with more unenforced laws.
Again, the only people that are effected
are those who follow the rules.
I respectfully continue to disagree. Lawful gun owners aren't sent to
prison; criminals are. Criminals who use guns get longer sentences
than those who don't use guns. That's because of gun control laws.
It's easier to get a gun than a driver's licence in NY, so I don't see
how NY's gun control laws are much of a hindrance.
As I noted earlier, you and I are probably talking about different gun
control laws. I posted the laws that govern me; perhaps the laws
governing you are more draconian, I don't know. All I can say is that
it's pretty easy to legally get a gun here, and I don't follow the
argument that gun control laws have made it difficult to legally own
and use a gun.
