Some questions do indeed need to be asked...

...just not this one:

Does anyone care that criminals, domestic abusers, terrorists and dangerously mentally ill people can get guns in the secondary markets without background checks? 
I'm guessing the above-quoted blogger doesn't give a shit about the fact that these allegedly dangerous people aren't locked up tighter than Dick's hatband in the first place. This seems to be a common thread among those clamoring for tighter gun laws -- they don't seem to care about the fact that these dangerous people are walking free in the first place. I understand that locking up every single mentally ill person might not be feasible. My wife pointed out as much one day as we were driving, and it is a good point. But as for the rest of them, I don't understand why they all can't be locked away for the good of society...for teh childrenses, even.
