Mr. Ambien Posted July 25, 2015 Share Posted July 25, 2015 Stricter gun laws don't really help. Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country...handguns are flat out illegal within Chicago city limits. Yet, gang members are constantly shooting each other with handguns within the city limits. So how effective are these strict gun laws really? Most of these guns gang members/criminals possess have been obtained illegally. Stricter gun laws wont help because they're not the ones going into the store and buying them, they get them from people who can obtain them legally no matter how strict the laws. The stricter laws only make selling the guns to people who can't get them on their own a more lucrative business. The real problem is that once a person takes the necessary and legal steps to purchase firearms, they can purchase as many friggin firearms as they want. In my opinion, limiting the number of firearms a person can have registered to their name is a start. No reason a person should need more than three guns...so why let them buy 50 of them. Its insane. People will always be able to obtain guns legally, the right to bear arms isn't changing any time soon. The least they can do is prevent people from bearing other people with arms though. Having no limit on the number of guns one can possess is basically allowing any person with a FOID card to become illegal gun distributors. in b4 "you just need it nationally"/"get rid of second amendment" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
