Passing gun laws won't help

January 26, 2013 

Some people think that laws forbidding the sale of certain guns will stop the violence in our country.

We have laws against the sale and use of cocaine, marijuana and meth. How are those laws doing? In the span of five years, both my wife and I were in automobile accidents with illegal aliens. Neither driver possessed a driver's license or insurance. Are there not laws against all those things?

Passing gun laws is not going to help the situation. Making people accountable is the key to solving this and many other problems in our country.
