Let try that logic with Gun Safety/Control

FACT: HB 2 Wouldn’t Have Prevented Gosnell Or “Determined Wrongdoers” Like Him From Operating
 In response to the invocation of “the Kermit Gosnell scandal” in the minority’s dissent, Justice Stephen Breyer argued that although “Gosnell’s behavior was terribly wrong,” “there is no reason to believe that” the restrictions imposed by HB 2 would have been “more effective than pre-existing Texas law at deterring wrongdoers like Gosnell.” He continued that Gosnell’s illegal operations were actually an example of Pennsylvania’s failure to regularly inspect medical facilities and not evidence of a widespread lack of safety in abortion care. Breyer explained, “Determined wrongdoers … are unlikely to be convinced to adopt safety practice by a new overlay of regulations,” making HB 2 no more effective than the “numerous detailed regulations covering abortion facilities” that were already in effect in Texas -- one of which requires an annual inspection of all clinics.
 "Gosnell’s behavior was terribly wrong. But there is no reason to believe that an extra layer of regulation would have affected that behavior. Determined wrongdoers, already ignoring existing statutes and safety measures, are unlikely to be convinced to adopt safe practices by a new overlay of regulations. Regardless, Gosnell’s deplorable crimes could escape detection only because his facility went uninspected for more than 15 years"
Notice the part Sharon Kann removed as it sounds like a NRA talking point.

Determined wrongdoers, [already ignoring existing statutes and safety
measures], are unlikely to be convinced to adopt safe practices by a new
overlay of regulations.
Let try that Justice Stephen Breyer logic with Gun Safety/Control
"The Orlando,Tucson, Aurora, San Bernardino and Sandy Hook shootings were terribly wrong. But there is no reason to believe that an extra layer of regulation would have affected that behavior. Determined wrongdoers, already ignoring existing statutes and safety measures, are unlikely to be convinced to adopt safe practices by a new
overlay of regulations."
