Perfect example of why new gun control laws won't be very effective. There are currently laws on the books that are not or should I say cannot be enforced. I wonder if these convicted felons had registered their firearms with the state of applied for a concealed weapon permit?

Francine, I like your compassion and mercy many of the times; in this case, I believe that it is mis-directed.

I agree with ToTEXASfromPA - if they were killing wild animals to eat because they were hungry, yes, that's wrong, but I can see why they would do it and take that into consideration. But when you start killing someone's livestock and stealing it, that's outright theft.

I bet they never thought about approaching the farmer to do some work for him in exchange for food.

Wow, a criminal with a firearm, who'd a thunk it?

In this country anyone can get a gun including felons.

Work for a farmer in exchange for food. Farmers are working a second job to afford the food they produce. How are they going to hire someone?

Further proof that gun laws are ineffective. It is apparently easy for criminals to get guns. Obama only wants to make it harder for the law-abiding citizenry to get guns, not the criminals. Want proof? If Obama was really interested in keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, he would look at his hometown and see that strict gun laws lead to more gun violence. And then he would try to find another solution.
