Connecticut throws 'assault weapon' registration party, (almost) nobody comes

Whether or not some kind of gun registration amnesty becomes law (over the governor's objections), it appears clear that the Connecticut government is about to discover that passing forcible citizen disarmament laws is the easy part. It's the enforcement that tends to be difficult--and dangerous. That is precisely as it should be. [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend--and Facebook "likes" and "shares" are hugely appreciated.

A lot of leftists don't think in terms of enforcement. They see anti-gun laws as an alternative to enforcement and punishment. When a law fails (often, because they would not, or could not, effectively enforce it), they respond by passing more laws. Then they can't enforce the new laws, either. Since the laws depend on voluntary compliance, they only affect law-abiding citizens, and have absolutely no effect on criminals.

Even if anti-gun activists supported effective law enforcement, their "registration party" would not take a single criminal's weapon off the streets. Criminals won't register their guns, and, under the catch-22 of Haynes vs. US, they can't be prosecuted for failure to do so.
