Since the three branches of Govt are designed each for a specific purpose...and The role of the Legislative branch is to MAKE
the laws, it would be rather self-defeating for Congress to say, "We have enough laws, We aren't going to create any more new ones"!!! It would be like putting themselves out of a job !! Hmmm What a novel concept !
There have been several Home Invasion type robberies in the Louisville area this Summer. Recently a home-owner was awakened late one night when two men broke into his home demanding money. He shot one and shot at the other when the 'perp' fled the scene. Seems to have a bit of detterent effect, as there haven't been any more of this type of late night breakins in the two weeks since the incident. BTW No Charges filed against the homeowner.
