There are 20,000 gun laws, why don't we just enforce them?

Problem is, there aren't 20,000 guns laws.

I was watching a video where a person, who I will call a skeptic, quoted that number. I wondered if it was true, how did they get that count? I guess he wasn't skeptical enough.

1. That's an NRA Talking Point

 

The NRA-bots arrive at 20,000 by counting the same law in every jurisdiction as a separate law, among other tricks.

It seems once you examine any of the NRA Talking Points, it turns out they're just, to put it plainly, lies.
