"Common Sense" Gun Laws
That's what the anti-gun fools always call the abortions they call “gun safety laws.” They refer to them as “common sense,” when they are anything BUT. “Universal background checks,” for example: where they are in force, just taking a gun and passing it around a room involves multiple “transfers” of the gun each time the gun passes from one hand to the other. Each "transfer" requires fees and a background check apply to each. Gun-free zones are supposed to make sure nobody brings guns into a place that is so designated. But like ILLEGAL gun owners who aren't affected by “universal background checks” because they get their guns illegally and don't bother with that folderol, criminals don't bother to observe the ”law” that tells them they can't bring their guns into a “gun-free zone.” In fact, they SEEK OUT gun-free zones, in which to “do their dirty work,” because they can be pretty sure there won't be a gun there to oppose them.
Concealed carry laws like the one in Illinois that allows a person to carry a concealed gun, but it must be UNLOADED are completely stupid. What the hell good does an UNLOADED gun do you? Trigger locks, “safe storage,” and such are designed to SLOW DOWN a lawful gun owner in getting their gun into action when attacked by an ILLEGAL gun owner, and serve only to get the LEGAL gun owner killed, since the illegal gun owner is not burdened by such things, since he doesn't bother to OBEY laws. All these laws ONLY apply to LEGAL gun owners who DO obey laws, even though they are NOT the problem. It is ILLEGAL gun owners who do NOT obey laws ,that are the [problem. None of this is “common sense,” but that's how they refer to them. My “Take” is, if you have to CALL your laws “common sense laws,” it's because they are NOT common sense. (Just real common sense)
