People who advocate in favor of stricter gun control legislation fail to accept the basic tenet that criminals don't obey laws. Removing guns from the hands of law abiding citizens only serves to increase the supply of victims for the criminal element to prey on.
Everywhere that citizens are allowed to defend themselves in this country, the crime rate drops. It's only common sense.
Sarah Brady's husband Jim suffered devastating injuries during the assassination attempt on President Reagan. I can fully understand how such a life changing event would spur her to activism. However, I feel that her efforts are misguided and counterproductive.
A criminal who wants a gun will always find a way to obtain one.
