  1. Forget the useless, hollow State charges, use the muscle of the tough, Federal gun laws regarding prohibited persons. If we dont use these tough laws against those who really deserve the scrutiny, there is NO legitimate basis for enacting ANY additional gun restrictions on law-abiding, decent people.

  2. As usual, gun laws did not deter a felon from obtaining a firearm. Gun laws are only obeyed by law abiding citizens.

  3. You mean Vermont’s universal background checks didn’t work?

  4. As the resident of the white house said ‘the red flag law will take the guns out of the criminal’s hands”…. how’s that working out?
