NW 332

And if the current United States Supreme Court nullifies existing state gun laws, cops will have to be concerned about facing legally armed persons with every car or person they stop. Some of these people might even be better armed than the police officer.

Some of them already are better armed.

NW 332

Most not legally.

NW 332

(On a side note, the House of Representatives voted to award Congressional Gold Medals to U.S. Capitol and D.C. Metropolitan police officers who defended the Capitol during the January 6th insurrection. Approximately 140 police officers were injured in the attack, many with serious injuries, and one police officer died. Two additional police officers were victims of suicide. Twenty-one House Republicans voted against awarding the medals!)

Well the House members must be in safe seats. The police officer who died had underlying health issues. Which of course doesn't excuse anyone. I was unaware of the suicides.As far as guns in criminals hands - "most not legally" would continue under any legislation. Think Chicago...

It’s not rocket science! Criminals who kill police or innocent people tend to not follow any laws let alone gun laws. Yes, think Chicago!

NW 332

Where do you think all those guns in Chicago come from? They don’t grow on trees in Illinois. They’re purchased “legally” in other states, like Indiana.

NW 332,
Guns have an enormous black market and many are purchased or taken through illegal means. The serial numbers are stripped off the gun itself. A single gang knows where one gun is hidden and all the members can use it at different times. That’s how it works in many of our cities unfortunately.
