It makes no sense for a group to on one hand call for the enforcement of existing laws, and on the other hand, oppose the measure that would maks such enforcement possible, unless their true interest is not progress, but propagandizing and footdragging.

I call for the federal government to prosecute all cases where purchases are attempted by prohibited individuals, rather than just prosecuting the major cases and ceding the rest to the states, where they are frequently neglected, nulle prossed or otherwise ignored due to differing political climates and lack of prison space. If this requires us to release nonviolent drug offenders to make room in our prisons, I'm all for it, and will feel safer once we institute same.
