    Read this article and think about it and then tell me what kind of new gun laws would have stopped this. 9 out of every 10 articles that I read the article says that the charges inclued possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. These kind of people will not follow a single new gun law. The new gun laws will make it more difficult for law abiding citizens to arm and protect themselves from these kind of people that will always find a way to have a gun.
