  1. ANOTHER one with an unlicensed gun and NO FID card. Will someone tell me how tougher gun laws will prevent this guy from having a weapon, and how they propose to control this??????

    • Oh, that’s easy. You see when they make all these new laws, the bad guys and girls will FEEL guilty and ashamed of breaking the law. After a short period of guilt, they will do the right thing and turn themselves in for punishment. This is the best way to target the problem of legal and law abiding citizens carrying guns. This liberal guilt has been on display for years and has worked in many other problem areas such as poverty, drugs,welfare abuse, and health care to name a few.
