Law Makes No Difference

In Louisiana they made a law to take guns away from people convicted of domestic violence, hoping to reduce the instance of domestic violence that way. Well, it didn't work. In fact, domestic violence cases have gone UP since the law was made. Not only that, some problems with the law itself have come up, making it difficult to enforce it. In spite of the numbers showing that increase, a “domestic violence reduction” promoter says the law has already reduced domestic violence (not surprisingly). Of course, as usual, the law goes too far, prohibiting the ownership of guns for people subject to a “protective order,” something we know are issued like lollipops to children in barber shops. As usual, this law, and others made for the same purpose, ignore the fact that those bent on murder are NOT going to worry about violating a piddling law against them having guns. That's a fatal flaw in ALL the anti-gun laws made in recent years. (Greenville Online)
