There is an argument put forward in a few of the above posts that "it is no use having stricter gun laws because criminals don't obey laws anyway."
If we follow this argument to its logical conclusion, its no use having any laws at all "because criminals aren't going to obey them." I guess this reasoning also explains just why criminals are criminal.
So, do all anti-gun law adherents really think we shouldn't have ANY laws? Or is there a grudging acceptance that, actually, some laws might be good.
A lawful society and individual rights are not mutually exclusive. Indeed they are complementary.
A foreigners view.
