From The Brady Bunch Facebook Page:
Laws are followed by the Law Abiding people, criminals by definition do not follow the law there fore a law prohibiting the keeping and bearings of arms is going to be only followed by those who are law-abiding. Also that is why we usually add penalties for violating a law so those breaking it feel the pain.
Let me give you an example. You know that recent law in Florida where localities are not allowed to pass gun control measures because the State has exerted pre-emption on any Gun Laws? Actually the law has been in the books for 23 years but some local governments decided that since the law worked on the honor system and imposed no penalties, they could bypass it and do pretty much whatever the hell they wanted because they are politicians and honor is not genetically encoded into them or was taught by Mom or Dad. This addendum to the existing law imposes a $5,000 penalty to any official creating or enforcing any local gun control regulation not approved by the Florida Legislature and the fine must be paid out of their pockets and not taxpayers’ funds. Counties that have been following the law since its inception will have no problems, anybody else is pretty much scrambling to remove the ILLEGAL ordinances or getting ready to be taken to court.
Now, any person with a somewhat functional brain is able to understand the whole concept stated above, but anti-gunners’ brains work on a different wavelength altogether: one of despotism. The following is a reply of the initial Brady post:
Apparently we are all criminals. We just haven’t been caught yet.
It is a good thing that stupidity is not punishable with the death penalty or Mike would be in the express lane to a Sparky recliner.
