    Great question

    Gun laws should we have today should be enforced but there are instances where the system can be improved.  There are many laws on the books both at the federal level and the state level.  The resources that each of these entities have a responsibility to uphold the law and the applicable constitutions.  The problem we have today to a large extent is we have too many laws to enforce.  Laws of the states and the federal government need to be streamlined.  Laws that do not serve a distinct purpose and achieves the objective for its creation should be removed. 

    This does not mean that there are laws that while they may not always meet their objective they are important safeguards for specific issues.  Regulations are interrelated with the laws that are passed and these need to be streamlined as well.

    Your question should be applied to all laws and not just gun laws.
    The United States has a limited amount of resources, and they don't seem to prioritize them.

    So the answer should be yes to enforcing the current laws. If we find some of these laws no longer necessary, or not benefiting the people, then we should remove or alter them.

    Criminal don't care about the law, that is why they are criminals. So the effectiveness of the law needs to be determined. The reason for doing that is again to insure that we have the necessary resources, and that the resources are being used efficiently.

    To me that means that law enforcement needs to be focused on the most dangerous crimes threatening their community. I would rather have a non felony escape the law enforcement as opposed to a felony.

    The prisons and jails are filled with criminals, overcrowded in many place, so like the fishing boats, we need to catch the big ones.
