They only elucidate what is and is not a crime. Money quote in this Mark Steyn article:
[...]if the gangs refuse to obey the existing laws, we'll just pass more laws for them not to obey.The attitude of gun control advocates in Britain seems to echo that of the gun control advocates on this side of the pond: an almost -- oh hell, a frankly superstitious regard for The Law that thinks that adding more laws -- more words, spells, and incantations -- will somehow magically reduce or eliminate the urges of the criminally-inclined to do crime. One word: WRONG. Just wait.
