We should have some more laws for the sake of words in a book? The administration of existing laws are regularly winked at. Hey, I remember when "There ought to be a law..." was a political cartoon spearing nonsensical thought.

We get it... A gun ban works for Canadians. How's it working for Mexico? Guns aren't the problem. Culture is the problem. Fixing things with pills is the problem. There are 100 different things that are the problem. Do you blame the car because a drunk driver hit your family head on and killed them? Or do you blame the idiot who thought it was OK to drive the car while drunk?
