So.....they WON'T help but they WILL help?
"These are good laws to have on the books because they make it harder for people barred from having guns and bullets to obtain them."
It's already illegal for convicted felons to be in possession of a single round of ammunition but this law will make it MORE illegal for them to have and/or get ammunition, got it.
"How big a problem is this? The gunman who shot and killed five people in Santa Monica three years ago was banned from owning a gun, so he bought the parts and made his own. And in recent months, local and federal law-enforcement agents have arrested at least eight people in Northern California on charges relating to the sale of such guns, and have confiscated hundreds of the firearms."
So, long story short, in a state of almost 40 MILLION people, it's actually NOT a 'big problem', and, statically speaking, NOT a problem AT ALL. But like the political hack once said, "NEVER let a crisis go to waste" (especially if it's a crisis we created).
