SAFE Act Enforceable In ‘A Liberal’s Dream World’
By Rex Tolman

Previous Gun Control Success: Earlier this year, Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which tracks federal prosecution data, found Chicago, Los Angeles and New York ranked last in federal gun law enforcement in 2012. The districts of Eastern New York, Central California and Northern Illinois ranked 88th, 89th and 90th, respectively, out of 90 districts, in prosecutions of federal weapons crimes. Can anyone really justify more gun laws when the current laws are not being enforced? We had a 10-year ban on assault weapons that was found to be so ineffective that it was rescinded. The only consistent correlation between gun control and gun violence is driven by the likes of New York and Chicago with some of the strictest laws and the most extreme gun violence. If super anti-gun Attorney General Eric Holder, is not going to prosecute the existing gun laws why would we want to impose more? Only when the existing gun laws are being fully enforced should we even begin any conversation on new laws.
