In a city based on gun control (For law abiding citizens anyway) 34 people were shot, six of whom are dead over last weekend. With so many gun laws on the books, you would think no one would ever get shot, wouldn’t you? The truth is the gun laws that Democrats put forth aren’t for criminals, they are for law abiding citizens who just want to see the sunrise tomorrow morning. Criminals do not believe in laws, that’s why they are criminals. They will continue to have guns because the more laws on the books, the higher the profit on the Black Market for illegal guns.
