Thread Name: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
PDQ makes some good point in this regard. We have over 20,000 gun laws and still the loopholes remain. I have no problem with gun shows by licensed FFL dealers , they are required BG checks. Sadly the guy next to them that is not a licensed dealer doesn't have to do any BG checks, thats the problem.

There is no way of knowing if more laws help or hurt, however, new laws for the sake of claiming victory and getting some votes do nothing to make anyone safer. Much of the new NY gun law falls into the category since we already had much of it in place. some of the new stuff isn't that bad ... some is just political pat on the back but does nothing.
