Enforcing existing gun laws more effective than making new ones
A rebuttal to the April 22, forum column, “Controlled by a poorly regulated militia:” If it is understood what the Founding Fathers meant by militia, it could be hardly more regulated. There are thousands of laws enacted to regulate the use of a firearm. I would contend that enforcement of those laws would go farther than proposing additional new ones. To the article’s contention that firearms kill, it is not the object, but the operator that does harm. Someone could stand before a automobile or a bulldozer and suffer no loss until the operator harms them. Further restricting the rights of law-abiding citizens is not the answer. Education, penal and judicial reform would be an answer. The biggest cities in Our Nation have the most restrictive firearm laws yet have the most firearm crime. Liberal thinking from academia has brought us to this point. Where do you wish to go forward ?
