If there is anything that people of all political persuasions can agree on regarding guns, it may be that existing gun laws should be better enforced and felons with firearms should be prosecuted. So it’s impressive that only Puerto Rico and the Western District of Texas had more federal gun prosecutions in the fiscal year ending September 2012 than Kansas, where the office of U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom (in photo) filed gun-related charges against 447 people. Kansas also led the nation in such prosecutions in fiscal 2011. Grissom said he has told local agencies: “If they are felons and you can pull them over and they are armed, give them to us and we will cut them out of your community. You can have a huge impact on the crime rate.”
