Guns, Gun control and Drug Trafficking
Common sense has long dictated that the only people likely to comply with gun control laws are law-abiding citizens who are not the problem. This linked article confirms that drug dealers are likely to carry guns because of the dangers in their trade. Many have felony convictions already and cannot lawfully buy or carry handguns. These folks are not going to be deterred by gun laws from acquiring or carrying guns. Because of the dangers involved, they will go to great lengths to get guns. Many also have lots of money to spend on guns. For these folks, the demand for guns is very inelastic. This is not rocket science!
