Reinventing the Wheel: Firearms Legislation

 

Law enforcement is more than just police departments, sheriff’s offices, and federal law enforcement officers. District attorneys and federal prosecutors are also part of the law enforcement process. Law enforcement officers make arrests, but prosecutors make the decision to take a case to court. Prosecutors may add, subtract charges, or decline to prosecute someone who has been arrested.

There has been a cry that we must do something to stop mass shootings. Do something, anything, regardless of whether or not it will work. Panic: Running around in circles, screaming and shouting are not going to mitigate a problem.
