    Thats usually because that politician is trying to kiss the ass of a certain segment of the population in his district for votes.For example a politician several years ago proposed gloves for roosters so they don't hurt each other while cock fighting.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Thank you for your responses. I suppose the USG would like to disarm any resistance to their corruption. The OP was about a State idiot lawmaker and it seems that the States are the problem, not the Feds. Even then, I can't absorb how stupid these attempts are - definitely not LOGICAL.

    Armed criminals only make up a small minority of the population.

    You don't think state and local politicians would want an unarmed population too? Local level politicians have more to fear from an armed population than federal level politicians.

Also, most guns used in crimes are not used by their original owner... they are stolen or have been resold so many times you could not trace them.
    It suppose to make someone feel good, not actually accomplish anything.
