Gun Laws We Follow.. and Gun Laws We Ignore

Louisiana- (  Ireland, and later India, were once under British rule.  At one point in their rebellions, they ignored the outside laws they didn’t like.  We are doing that again in the United States.  It is hard for me to imagine gun owners breaking the law.  Once you’ve been around the gun culture for a while you learn that licensed gun owners are the rule-following type.  Many gun owners would like to follow the law all the time, but they can’t.  Gun owners are not alone.  Neither the lawyers nor the judges who work with firearms law every day can keep up with the 23 thousand gun laws.  Breaking our gun laws is more than a matter of ignorance.  The very prosecutors charged with enforcing our firearms laws routinely ignore them as well.  On second consideration, the government lawyers ignore far more firearms laws than do gun owners.  Remember that when you hear a politician say we need more firearms restrictions.
I’ll start with gun owners first.
