It turns out that allowing the sale of so called assault weapons (especially at gun shows) and the lack of ballistic fingerprinting really isn't the problemt. Rather, like anyone with a shred of common sense realizes, its simply a matter of throwing the crooks in the pen and tossing out the keys.
Justice Department Inspector General Glenn A. Fine identified more than 7,000 cases in 2002 and 2003 in which a person prohibited from buying a gun under federal firearms restrictions was able to do so. The report also found that less than 1 percent of the 120,000 people who unlawfully tried to buy guns during those years were prosecuted for the crime.Imagine that - Of 120,000 crimes committed, we only prosecuted 1200.
Earth To Chief Ramsey and DiFi and all the other gun banners out there - if you don't prosecute the crooks and throw them in jail, guess what??? All the laws in the world won't stop them from committing crimes.
