... what's the point:
But neither brother appears to have been legally entitled to own or carry firearms where they lived, a fact that may add to the national debate over current gun laws. Last week, the U.S. Senate rejected a bill to expand background checks on gun purchases, legislation that opponents argued would do nothing to stop criminals from buying guns illegally.Ya think? Of course they didn't have a permit to own ... criminals don't follow the law.
If there was ever any doubt, firearms laws do nothing ... NOTHING to stop criminals from obtaining firearms.
Why do we still ahve them then?
