While some would have us believe that creating new laws will somehow have an effect on the criminal element should create a question in every ones mind. Why would a person intent on committing a crime have the thought process to stop because a new law was passed. If we are ever going to solve the real problem we must first acknowledge what the problem is. Is it just the criminal mindset, mental illness, or a sudden rage in a person. If we continue to place the blame on an inanimate object then we can never solve the real problems we face.
