Well said and spot on!
Take the great city of Chicago for example. They have some of the strictest
firearm laws in the Nation coupled with one of the highest
murder rates. It is the criminals with illegally owned or obtained firearms that are the primary problem. Something like 95% of the firearms used in Chicago were obtained illegally. And over 87% of the people arrested for firearm related crimes were already legally prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm. But the Government & the Media want you to believe the answer is more firearm laws.

You can't start
a fight and then claim self defense when it turns out you picked on the wrong person & are getting your butt kicked!
