    There is no gun registration in Durham. It was repealed in 2013. Those records were destroyed in 2014.

    You are correct, though, that gun laws don't do much to deter crime. They only limit the ability of honest people do defend themselves.

    Which maroon thinks a McD's will have money in its store at 5 am?

    But Durham requires gun registration, isn't that supposed to make people safer? Didn't work did it? Neither do most of the laws and restrictions which the criminal element laughs at and ignores. Wake up liberals. This may come as a shock but "criminals commit crimes" and criminals generally disregard laws. More laws are not the answer, rigorous enforcement of existing laws will be the only solution that has a chance. I will bet money the perpetrators will turn out to be long term criminals or gang bangers trying to earn street cred. I submit the only street cred they should get should be long sentences in prison. Get the animals off the street.
