Gun Control Failed Again in Denver – mass murderers don’t obey the law

Would another law make us safer? U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- I shouldn’t have to remind the media of the obvious, but mass murderers break the law. The 17 and 18-year-old murderers broke many laws, both before and during their attack at the STEM School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. This is important because it means that passing more restrictive laws won’t work. More laws won't stop the next mass murderers since they too are willing to break the law.
