    Anytime the police confiscate a loaded gun it’s one fewer instrument of death off the street. I’m happy with that.

    However, much more must be done by law enforcement to significantly reverse the proliferation of guns and ammunition entering the country. A strategic crime plan is of absolute necessity. These random finds are good but, let me reiterate, a well thought- out plan must be put in place.
