    Go figure, another liberal bastion with severe gun control laws.
    (Guess what? Gun control doesn’t work on criminals).

      Using your logic we should just do away with ALL laws, because criminals will can/will break all laws on the book and thus no reason to have them right? Laws to prevent rape and murder? ha who needs them! How about we just legalize murder in effort to reduce the amount of homicides? We should repeal all gun laws and make it easier to get guns, because we all know more and more guns will result in lower gun incidents.
