Do We Want Better Enforcement of Misguided Gun Restrictions?

"The single most important thing we can do to prevent gun violence and mass shootings," President Obama said last week, "is to make sure those who would commit acts of violence cannot get access to guns." No, it is to raise children to adulthood who do not want to kill people because, as common sense dictates, any number of methods of killing people are available to the homicidal. Cain needed no fancy weapon. Of course, raising people who aren't homicidal is a complex problem that politicians don't want to address, since it can't be solved in time for the next election, and it would mean reversing many laws that work against strong families, good work ethics, and proper punishments for crime.

As a free society,we CANNOT always keep guns out of the hands of evildoers,preventing more shootings.
that's where the "progressives" FAIL. They mistakenly believe that such evil can be prevented,but are unwilling to consider any efforts to be able to STOP a shooting once one begins.
"progressives" are all too willing to consider trashing the Constitution with Utopian-fantasy gun control and mental testing that cannot work and is impractical,but absolutely rule out allowing armed,carry-permitted school employees that HAS worked before in a couple of schools and other public places,doesn't cost anything,and is very practical. VERY do-able,and EFFECTIVE.

So it's not really about keeping the children safe.

I note that local and Federal police and military have guns stolen from them,so guns will always be available.
FEDGOV alone is missing over 1000 of their guns,some being machine guns. Recently,an Alabama man was found with 30 military guns,grenades,blasting caps,even a REAL assault rifle(select -fire,a machine gun) that were stolen from a military depot. Who knows how many more military guns and munitions are missing? Neither FEDGOV nor the military make that info public.

"The single most important thing we can do to prevent gun violence and mass shootings," President Obama said last week, "is to make sure those who would commit acts of violence cannot get access to guns." Toward that end, he wants to require background checks not just for sales by federally licensed firearms dealers (as under current law), but for all gun transfers except those between relatives.

This idea seems to be the most popular of Obama's gun control proposals, supported by nine out of 10 respondents in a recent CBS News poll. Yet it is unlikely to stop mass shootings,...
