    Criminals are not going to follow these laws either so why make more laws for the ones that do follow the laws. If people wouldn’t be scared of hurting someone’s feelings when they break the law maybe the usa of have harsher laws to punish people with and we would not have the issues we have.

    Shawn, I am tired of nonsensical arguments given by people like you about how laws don't matter to criminals. Yes, they don't stop a criminal's desire to kill. But they stop criminals from getting guns and decrease the probability of these criminals getting guns. So instead of having 30,000 gun deaths, we can have much lesser deaths (e.g. only a few 100's)!?? We are the only first world country that wants to live like a third world country!!! All first world countries that have restrictions on guns have much lesser violence than we do!
