Criminals don’t follow rules

Criminals don’t follow the rules. What is the point of implementing strict gun control laws if criminals find ways around them? If that were the case gun control laws would take away the only tool civilians have to defend themselves from armed criminals. This idea is similar to the years of prohibition in the United States. Alcohol was prohibited all across America, but did the law stop alcohol distribution and consumption? Well it did not. This is an interesting argument mentioned by many gun enthusiasts but the reality is that, as we have seen in previous posts and data, it is not a valid point. Further more, if we take prohibition as a reference for not implementing gun laws, we can see that regulations do help our society to better handle alcohol consumption.

Another argument that gun advocates use is the fact that guns don’t kill people, people kill people; the issue is rooted in the person using the gun. This is a valid point as well but if the NRA and other organizations believe this, why don’t they allow to background check control laws to be passed?

Bottom line, we can agree that even if we implement gun control laws criminals might find their way around and get guns, but, lets make it at least more difficult for them to do so. Lets implement background checks so only the “good guys” can get guns and also lets so regulate the type of weapons that can be sold. Even Rambo thinks that we shouldn’t have assault weapon type of power on the streets! After the Newton massacre, this is what he had to say: “Who…needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you’re carrying out an assault…You can’t hunt with it…Who’s going to attack your house, a fucking army?”

For this time, let’s agree with the guy from the Expendables
