They don't become laws because they don't work or help.

Mass shootings do nothing except prove that gun control laws DON'T WORK!!! Criminals do not follow the law. The creation of gun-free zones (disarmed victim zones) do nothing but give them a happy hunting ground where they KNOW they will not be met with any kind of violent response.....at least for awhile.

It's not about laws it's about physically stopping the user. The anti-gun crowd is simply running alot of what if scerios as loaded questions.

They are basically trying to put words in your mouth by pinning you into a corner saying you have no sympathy for those killed by a deranged CRIMINAL if you are against controls/bans. Far from it.

But with hypothetical scnerios,loaded questions and/or baiting tactics using carefully selected words like "reasonable"or "conversation" so as a negatory response might shame you the anti gun crowd will pursue their agenda.

Their agenda is basically about governmental reliance/provided service ie let the government protect you with an after the fact police response. Government reliance will be followed by government control, the final outright ban-why do you even need to target shoot or hunt?

But neither government or self reliance can protect you from every single possibility, event or scnerio out their involving guns wether it be a crime or accident.
