Gawd, you're just like PV, but a Breitbart zombie instead of an infowars zombie. So when someone commits murder, they "ignore" murder laws, right? So by your logic we should just do away with the law. Problem solved!
*facepalm*
Let's stick with your own logic for a minute. If we're going by number of deaths, where is the banning of knives, alchohol, and tobacco? Where is the self righteous outrage from the left?

If you're arguing that laws against murder don't impact the murder rate then one would need to question the law's value. A good way to test that would be to repeal it. But I think we would be unhappy with those results.

Gun, Ammo Sales Surge After Boston Marathon Bombing

The surge in gun and ammo purchases that began after Sandy Hook and continued through the Senate's failed gun control vote appears to have picked up steam again following the Boston Marathon bombing.

For example, at the Syracuse Gun Show on the New York State Fairgrounds last weekend, so many people showed up that some had to wait in line more than two hours just to get into the gun show. Those that waited did so on a windy day, amid sleet and snow flurries.

Moreover, for this specific gun show, few people came to sell guns; most came to buy them and find the ammo they needed for their guns at home.

Jeff Dillard, who runs the National Armory in Pompano Beach, FL, said the combination of the "terrorist attacks" and possible gun control legislation put people into a "panic situation" again.

He said acquiring ammunition and ammunition components is getting more and more difficult: "Our [ammunition] vendors are telling us not only are they out of stock but some are two to three million [bullets] in back order. They won't even take our orders because they don't know when they'll be able to fill them."

I couldn't agree more! Five people is a lot so NYS should have rammed that law through! More people were killed with knives in NYS but I trust our politicians to get it right. Besides we have the powerful knife lobby to fight!
Apparently not as strong as the gun lobby.

"The knives generally fall into one of two categories: switchblades and gravity knives. On a switchblade, the blade pops out at the simple flip of a switch; with gravity knives, the blades come out by a simple flick of the wrist. Carrying either of those kinds of knives is a crime under New York State law, prosecutors said."

Sure, we can't come up with an answer, so let's just change subjects. Works every time!

Anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of polls and data knows that this question about background checks is too broad and too vague. It's meaningless. It may be true that 86% are for even extremely tough background checks, but the survey as done is useless.

Bat Wielding Thug Makes The Mistake Of Attacking Victim With A Shotgun

Midland, Texas ó Imagine the fear and adrenaline that would race through your body if an intruder carrying a baseball bat were breaking into your home so he could hurt you and the other people in the house. Thatís the situation a 19 year old man whose name hasnít been released by police faced earlier this week.

The man with the baseball bat was 32 year old Samuel Poppa. Unfortunately for him, it turns out that he brought a baseball bat to a gun fight. The 19 year old was armed with a shotgun and he shot Poppa in the chest. Poppa later died from his wound at the hospital.

I think you are wrong on this.
Most of the stories I read about gun deaths are not as you describe.
