What tighter laws are you proposing? You can't own automatic weapons. You have to go through a bunch of bs red tape to own handguns and semi-automatic assault rifles. You need licenses. And you have to go through all kinds of training and background checks to get a concealed weapons permit. It's virtually impossible in the cities, where the vast majority of gun violence occurs. And finding ammunition in supermarkets is laughable. Heh. And history has shown us that one gun law just leads to another. It was auto weapons first, now it's handguns and soon it will be rifles and shotguns. That's the way these arrogant activists work.
