Gun proponents, please stop using the ridiculous "criminals don'

Avalon - Gun proponents, please stop using the ridiculous "criminals don't obey laws" argument. If the argument has any validity, why have any laws at all, for any type of crime? The reality is that our weak gun-control laws create and enable criminals. No one is born a "bad guy." No baby comes into this world "packing heat." Every bad guy with a gun once had no gun. Because of the NRA's "any gun for anyone, anytime, anyway, any place" philosophy, it's too easy for those with criminal intent to get guns and commit crimes. We need stricter gun-control laws, such as those of Switzerland.
