(2)Law abiding citizens who carry weapons and use them responsibly.
(3)Criminals, or people who engage in criminal behavior while using a firearm.
I, personally, want to keep (2) as well armed as possible, (1) as well armed as is reasonable and (3) as poorly armed as possible. Gun control legislation will not effect (1), has little to no effect on (3), and will most likely pose a significant restraint on (2).
I guess I just don't understand this. If you are a law abiding citizen how would stricter guns laws for criminals affect you?
