Gabby Giffords Praises GOP Rep for Introducing Gun Control Bill
by AWR Hawkins14 Jul 2017

On Thursday gun control proponent Gabby Giffords praised Rep. Dan Donovan (R-NY) for introducing a bill to expand the number of people prohibited from firearm possession.
Donovan is sponsoring the gun control along with Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.).
According to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Donovan’s gun control bill “seeks to close loopholes in gun laws to prevent people convicted of domestic violence or stalking from buying firearms.” It is called the “Zero Tolerance for Domestic Abusers Act.”
Giffords praised the bill and endorsed it, but she hedged her bets by admitting the bill “won’t stop every act of violence.”  In truth, the bill will not stop any determined attacker–no amount of gun control does–and the success of this particular gun control bill is predicated on the belief that a ban on buying or possessing a gun will keep a determined attacker from buying or possessing gun. Felons in possession of guns prove the fallacy of such a predication daily.
One thing bill will is expand gun control even further that its present reach, adding to the cumbersome set of hoops law-abiding citizens must already jump through to acquire a gun at retail.
The viability of a particular gun control law has never hindered Giffords, who pushes background checks as a solution to crime even though her attacker passed a background check to acquire the gun with which he attacked her.

I wonder if these folks will ever realize that criminals or people willing to engage in criminal activity, don't follow the law by definition.   So, making more laws for them is a fruitless endeavour.

I hate to sound cynical, but I doubt these laws are really aimed at criminals and whackjobs.

No they're not. The laws are aimed at disarming the law abiding so they're easier to be control by the "state".
Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.
