The street level thugs with illegal weapons is where the lions share of violent crimes occur.
[/QUOTE]

In actual fact: the majority of gun crimes occur in the home.

That is why murders are most frequently committed by someone in the same household.

Circuit court of the United States fifth circuit and district of Louisiana.
The United States
vs.
William J Cruikshank et al.

Charge of Hon WB Woods, circuit judge, delivered to the petit jury in the Grant Parish massacre case, referred to in the testimony of Mr Beckwith.

THE GRANT PARISH PRISONERS TRIAL--IN THE UNITED STATES CIRCUIT COURT--JUDGE
WOODS'S CHARGE--WAITING FOR THE VERDICT

...JR Beckwith, United States attorney, for the prosecution.
RH Marr w.R. Whittaker, E.J. Ellis, M. Ryan and-- Bryan, for the defense.

The United States vs William J. Cruikshank and others--Judge Woods,[later associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court (188087)], charged the jury as follows:

"...The second count charges a banding together of the indicted parties with the intent to injure, oppress, threaten, and intimidate Nelson and Tillman, with the purpose to hinder and prevent them in the free exercise and enjoyment of their constitutional right to bear arms for a lawful purpose..."

"The right to bear arms is also a right protected by the Constitution and laws of the United States. Every citizen of the United States has the right to bear arms, provided it is done for a lawful purpose and in a lawful manner. A man who carries his arms openly, and for his own protection, or for any other lawful purpose, has as clear a right to do so as to carry his own watch or wear his own hat."

Is the sun still coming up in the east, GayDavy?

You do know that you do not have a right to sell firearms to fellow felons? and that the 2nd Amendment does not give you and your fellow felons the right to carry or own or even touch firearms?

a threat. And there should be more prosecutions for attempting to buy a firearm illegally. I'm sure that the lack of prosecutions has nothing to do with the gun nut lobby. LOL.
Close the loopholes, prosecute more offenders.

I'm more interested in the prosecution of people who have actually broken the law: arrest BOTH the buyers and sellers.

Putting aside that this figure was from 2010.

And putting aside the RATE for prosecution for "attempting to buy" hasn't changed a FRACTION since George Bush was president.

Doesn't matter, it's the law MAKERS that really count:

"This is a most invaluable liberty guarantied to every American citizen. A people in the full enjoyment of the right of trial by jury, and all armed, are free, and cannot be reduced to slavery. In our country happily, the people are generally divided into opposing political parties of something like proximate numbers. All whether belonging to the party in power or the opposition, alike have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. The free exercise of this right is indispensable to the safety of those in opposition, and it is equally necessary to the preservation of the liberties of all. It is impossible that half, or any great proportion of the people of a country, should be enslaved without that soon becoming the fate of the whole. That party which preserves its own liberties, necessarily achieves the same for the entire nation..."

"...A Just, patriotic, and constitutional administration of the Government would never attempt to subvert the right the opposition, of all the people, to keep and bear arms. It is a right formidable only to tyrants, usurpers, and oppressors."

- Senator Garrett Davis, Feb. 27, 1865,[THE CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE CONTAINING THE DEBATES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE SECOND SESSION OF THE THIRTY EIGHTH CONGRESS ALSO OF THE SPECIAL SESSION OF THE SENATE,(Pages 1133-34).]

Seriously?
Please show one example of a pro gun lobby organization blocking prosecution of someone caught trying to purchase a firearm illegally. Just one! Your propaganda has no merit whatsoever.
Liberals want more gun laws when those in place are rarely enforced or prosecuted. They are rarely enforced or prosecuted because of liberal politicians, judges, and prosecutors.
Criminals do not care how many laws you pass. Laws do not apply to them. More criminals feel that way every day because they do not get prosecuted often, and when they do, they go to a country club as punishment. The only ones truly punished, are those obeying the ridiculous laws and those paying taxes to house the criminals in a country club.

Ah, the Obama debate method. Even after being corrected on a point, just ignore the correction and keep saying it like its a fact.
