Criminals won't abide by new gun laws

Regarding Clarence Page's “Guns lobbyists now grasping at straws” (Commentary, March 1): I agree that most criminals get their guns in the black market, but who gets punished by any legislation that's proposed — the criminal or the law-abiding citizen? Outlawing high-capacity magazines and certain types of firearms only outlaws them for the law-abiding citizen. The criminals don't abide by the laws, so at best all we have is a piece of feel-good legislation!

From what I've seen, gun lobbyists aren't the ones who are grasping for straws. It's the anti-gun groups that are spreading false information and distorting the truth. The truth, according to FBI statistics, is that gun violence is at an all-time low.
