Gun laws

The gun debate continues in the United States with supposedly educated people (politicians and professors) calling for more gun control. I would like to ask why they think criminals would obey new laws, when they do not obey existing laws.

Why not push for tougher sentencing of criminals, using the myriad gun laws already on the books? More gun laws only hurt law-abiding gun owners. Criminals don’t care.

Hillary Clinton is now declaring war on the NRA — not on criminals, terrorists, or illegal aliens, but the NRA. The NRA is comprised of law-abiding citizens, committed to protecting our Second Amendment rights.

The same politicians who want to take away our right to protect ourselves all have armed security for themselves and their families. I guess they think their lives are more important than ours.
