St. Louis County Police Chief Says Gun Control Laws Won’t Do Any Good

St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch says new gun control laws won’t do any good.
“The horse is out of the barn.”

FOX2 Now reported:

St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch created controversy after the Newtown, Connecticut massacre when he said that school employees should be armed.

President Barack Obama and others favor re-instating the ban on assault weapons and outlawing ammunition magazines that hold more than ten rounds. Chief fitch says it’s way too late for any of that.

Chief Fitch says the rush to buy guns after the massacre of schoolchildren in Newtown shows that it’s too late for any new gun control laws to have any real effect. Fitch says with hundreds of millions of guns already in the hands of private owners in the United States, that it’s already easy for anyone who wants to have a gun to get one. And Fitch says armed deterrence, like having an armed police officer at every school, is easier to do than trying to get guns off the street.

“I think that horse is out of the barn. We know there’s over three hundred million guns in this country that are out there. I don’t think there’s any way, I mean, if you pass a law it may feel good to pass a law, but realistically, what’s it going to change? You’re not going to, nobody in this country’s going to go up and knock on every door person’s door and say turn in your assault weapons, turn in your ammo. That’s not going to happen,” stated Chief Fitch.

    Count on the criminalization to possess just about every gun you can think of. Not only restrictions, but actual criminalization of possessing a banned firearm.
    DHS, the TSA and certain, but not all, law enforcement agencies are going to be elbow deep in riot control in response to an economic incident. At the same time or close to it, gun confiscation will start.

    Watch how this fiscal cliff thing plays out. This is the run-up to the next big economic event.
    The fiscal crisis. This is planned,the lack of deal is planned. In fact, it’s necessary to pave the way for what is in the short term agenda.

    First, every politician who wants “gun control” should first step up and give up his guns and armed body guards and also remove his kids from any school or other location protected by armed guards or cops.

    Step up and set the pace guys … or sit down and STFU about disarming the law abiding citizens.

  • Economan

    These Statist are concerned about guns? What about guns Obama has given to our enemies overseas and drug cartels? Not a peep from Fienstien or any other idiot “conserned” about guns.

    Is it true that the father of the Aurora shooter and the father of the Sandy Hook shooter were allegedly expected to testify in the Libor scandal that rocked the banking world in June?
