16. I think folks believe in the myth that a law's procedures must be 100% complied with,

that every contingency must be met in order for it to have good effect. In Austin in 2011, the weapon-of-choice for homicides was knife or sharp-edged instrument. Even with Texas & fed laws, there must be some kind of deterrence.

If gun-owners trust the system, more and more people will use it. Like re-filling a swamp, the pockets of land where illegal trade/purchase will become fewer and more visible, and hence more subject to law enforcement stings.
