Editorial -- Gun form won't deter drug cartels

The president might think he's tough on crime. But according to Syracuse University, federal prosecutions of gun crimes have dropped to their lowest level since 2000. When it comes to violent crime, NRA's 4 million members and America's 90 million gun owners stand for what works strong interdiction, swift arrest, tough prosecution and certain incarceration to remove violent criminals from our society. If President Obama truly wanted to crack down on violent gangs, he'd order his attorney general to increase not decrease federal prosecutions. He should direct his U.S. attorneys to prosecute every single violent criminal caught with a gun.
