MS-13 Gang Member Demonstrates Precisely Why Gun Laws Won’t Work

By

No doubt Democratic leaders will promptly stick their fingers in their ears at this news, but an MS-13 gang member just demonstrated precisely why more gun restrictions won’t necessarily reduce shootings.

Via Breitbart:

Sheriff’s deputies in Hillsborough County, Florida, arrested a “certified MS-13 gang member” after he allegedly brandished an AK-47 in the middle of a road in an attempt to stop traffic. The gang member is a previously convicted felon who could not legally own or possess the weapon.

Hillsborough County Deputies assigned to a Wimauma, Florida, district received calls for assistance from motorists who reported being threatened by a man in the roadway with a rifle. Complainants stated the man brandished the weapon in an attempt to stop traffic, according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas by the office of Sheriff Chad Chronister. The callers said the man stood in the street with the rifle and yelled at them to stop. He also reportedly jumped in front of cars in an attempt to make them stop.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they said they observed a Hispanic male walking near a truck with the rifle in his hands. The deputies ordered the man to drop the rifle. The suspect allegedly refused to comply and fled on foot into a nearby wooded area.

Did you catch the important bits?

The guy was a convicted felon, meaning the gun control laws we ALREADY HAVE IN PLACE should have prevented him from possessing such a weapon.

But, as we’ve been trying to explain to thick-headed liberals, criminals don’t obey laws, so will continue to obtain and illegally use guns no matter what laws you pass.
