DOJ Sponsored Paper Contradicts Obama?

The National Institute for Justice, a research agency of the Department of Justice, has released a White paper contradicting many of Mr. Obama’s statements and proposed polices. They point out that most of the current proposals would not really reduce gun violence.

However, one concerning aspect of the report is they mention that most of the current proposals would only work if they are eventually made more restrictive. For instance, "Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to U.S. gun homicide and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapons ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence. If coupled with a gun buyback and no exemptions then it could be effective."
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
