Mike Huckabee has poured cold water on the call for more gun control laws as a way of stopping mass shootings like last week's bloodbath at a Florida high school in which 17 died.

"If you have a new law that will actually help, then I'm more than happy to listen — but who's going to enforce those new laws when we can't even enforce the laws we have now? Who will verify the millions of new background check forms?" Huckabee wrote Tuesday on his blog.

"Here's the sad, hard truth, and if we ever want to stop these heartbreaking massacres, then we'd better accept it: the only people who can stop future school shootings are us. We have to watch out for troubled, alienated young people and try to engage them and help them.

"If they can't be helped, we need to watch and report them, and demand that the authorities do their jobs and follow up. God forbid, if all else fails, then we'd better be prepared to protect our children ourselves.

The former Arkansas governor and two-time GOP presidential candidate added: "Trying to make ourselves feel better by passing more useless laws that can't or won't even be enforced isn't going to cut it."
