Why do they go after the legal gun owners? Just use the law to get illegal guns off of the street.
Frankly it reminds me of what is gion on in Oakland, and East Palo Alto. EPA has made some drastic changes and relly gone after criminals. They went from the worst murder rate per capita in the US to not even showing up on the charts any more.
Oakland voted down a measure to increase police funding for needed officers in the worst crime areas because it would raise taxes 1%.

They wont even help the police when their children get shot.

If witnesses dont want to come forward they have made their own beds.

This idiotic bill will not stop the killing. In fact the killing will continue and will get worse. The city is focusing on the wrong issue, criminals!

Go after the criminals not the law-abiding citizens. Have you not learned the lessons from Washington D.C., did gun control work there?

D.C. enacted that law 20 years ago and it did not stop gun violence. I bet 99% of these homicides were from criminals and gangs.
