    Gun laws in USA won't work any better than they do in USVI & BVI!! When there are laws, only the criminals will have guns and yes, they will have them. Also note: Big mass killing in San B. , Calif., done with guns. The laws Obama wants for entire USA were/are in place in Calif. Didn't help did it?
