If gun control laws are supposed to reduce gun violence and crimes, then explain why so many convicted felons are still caught with firearms, which they are not allowed to be in possession of?

Take the case of 26-year-old Samuel Davis of Springfield, Massachusetts. Sixteen months ago, Davis pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm and ammunition without a state FID card and for distributing crack cocaine. He was sentenced to 30 months, the last 18-months was to be served on probation.

While still on probation, Davis was arrested for shooting a woman in the butt after she gave him a counterfeit $20 bill. He was subsequently arrested on new charges and his probation has been revoked, sending him back to jail.

(Mass Live) – A Springfield man awaiting trial for allegedly shooting a woman who gave him a fake $20 bill has been sentenced to 18 months in jail for violating his probation in an earlier case.

Samuel Davis, 26, was charged in March with shooting a woman in the buttocks after receiving a counterfeit $20 bill during a suspected drug deal on Fort Pleasant Avenue, Assistant District Attorney Carrie Kenniston said.

When police arrived, they found the victim with “burn marks and a hole” in her backside from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, the prosecutor said…

This case proves two points. One – criminals don’t abide by gun laws and get guns even when they are not allowed to have them. Two – probation and parole only allow convicted felons to victimize more people when they should still be in jail, which is why I am adamantly against probation and parole. I’ve seen too many victims who should not have been victims if their assailants were still serving their time in jail instead of on probation or parole.
