That's not a bug, that's a feature

JD, on the 10th anniversary of the Massachusetts gun laws:
Before the 1998 law was passed, there were approximately 1.5 million licensed gun owners in the state, but because of the persecution and the expense ($100 for a gun license), the number has been reduced to about 240,000 and the armed criminals are having a field day.

So please tell me what this law actually reduced for illegal activity???
JD, the law has been a huge success - gun licenses down 85% in ten years. Mission accomplished! Why are you asking about something entirely unrelated, like illegal activity?

Sigh. Wonder what it'd be if this were a "shall issue" state?
