Some of them are finally starting to catch on.
It happens with distressing regularity: A deranged person slaughters innocent victims. Gun control advocates call for new limits on firearms. Then, it is disclosed it was not lack of enough laws but, rather, failure to enforce those already on the books that resulted in the tragedy.
This is not an argument against consideration of new limits, such as those intended to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally unbalanced.
But it is a suggestion that more attention needs to be given to compliance with existing regulations. What good are gun safety laws — those in effect now or those being proposed — if enforcing them is not a priority?
