Op ed: Legislation won't stop criminals from buying guns

Joseph Ramieri of Denville, NJ is a bright, intelligent and articulate man. I enjoyed his concise explanation of why restrictive gun laws will not work in the Daily Record today.

Although I am left leaning, the plain truth is that legislation only affects those who abide by the law and not criminals, by definition. When purchasing a pistol in New Jersey, I am subjected to an extensive background check. If I was a criminal or had a violent past, would I subject myself to this? Obviously not. I would purchase one illegally, which can be easily done in any inner city. One need not go to Virginia.

Amen Mr Ramieri.
