Two recent Rasmussen polls suggest that gun control advocates are going beyond the limits of popular support. While the first survey found that 74 percent of respondents agreed with the following statement: "Does the U.S. Constitution guarantee the right of an average citizen to own a gun?", the second one presented an even bigger question for those who think that passing laws is the answer to reducing gun violent. In that survey, 57 percent of respondents believed that there should be a greater emphasis on enforcing current laws over passing new ones.
When we see that, we can't help but think about websites like Charleston Thug Life, which recently ran this posting showing a collection of photos taken from Facebook pages of local hoodlums, some of whom are clearly underage, carrying weapons - including the photo shown on the right. This site has profiled many instances of convicted felons who committed crimes with weapons they weren't supposed to have in the first place and shown how, time and time again, dangerous criminals get light sentences and dropped charges, allowing them to run the streets and keep doing more of what they'd been doing.
Want to reduce the number of crimes committed by those with guns? It would seem logical that locking up the ones who commit them would be a good first step.
