Get a clue sport. The are millions of guns in this country. Anybody that wants to use one in a crime already has one. The only way crime will decrease will be if some element of risk is forced upon potential criminals.
Street Cops laugh at people like you. They call you "whitebread".
A few weeks ago Slapshot had a great laugh, or so he thought, when I related the incident where the cop that taught the CCW class I was in several years ago, saw me out the week after the theater shooting. He asked if I was armed and answered truthfully, no. He then replied, "Well you should be, that pistol is no good to anybody locked in your gun safe."
Slapshot had a great laugh about it, even commented facetiously something about his relationship with the chief of police of his local. Although I suspect his only interaction with the POPO involves simple possession, being a child of the 60's and all.
Due to the recent spat of mass murders lately in the US, the public demanding some type of fast action involving guns.
In the latest multiple murders in NY of FFs, the suspect was a convicted felon in possession of firearms.
If the public wants something done quickly a good first step is federal law that says ANY convicted felon found in possession of a firearm gets a mandatory TEN YEAR sentence if found guilty. No probation, no time served, no special circumstances.
This type of sentence would remove lots of gang bangers, career criminals and other folks who prey on society.
If the ten year sentences works and removes lots of parasites from society, maybe increase it to 15 years.
As if all the other laws are being observed. Are there enough police officers to keep up with all the laws?
My children are my legacy.
What we need is a mandatory sentence for offenses involving firearms.
I read an article recently that said 90 PERCENT of people who commit homicide have a prior felony conviction on their record.
It seems rather simple, if you are felon and are found in possession of a firearm or ammunition, you should receive a MANDATORY 10 year sentence.
Looks like the guys sister was in the house and her charred remains are being indentified..
He had some firepower with him:
Pickering said he was not sure what the victims were shot with, but said Spengler had an "arsenal of ammunition" and three weapons - a Smith & Wesson .38 caliber revolver, a pump-action Mossberg shotgun, and a .223 Bushmaster rifle with a flash suppressor.
The same model Bushmaster rifle was used in the killing of 20 students and six teachers in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14.
You gun nuts can rest easy though, as it appears he got these weapons illegally..
Exactly. They let him off with manslaughter. It was murder and he should have been locked up for life.
Start the "90%" off with this:
18 U.S.C. § 922(g)
Knowing possession of firearm by prohibited person
Finish them off with these:
18 U.S.C. § 924(c)
Carrying, using, or possessing firearm in connection with crime of violence or drug trafficking crime
(5, 7, 10, 25, or 30 year consecutive mandatory minimum)
18 U.S.C. § 924(e)
Armed Career Criminal Act: person convicted under § 922(g) who has three prior convictions for serious drug offenses or violent felonies
(15 years mandatory minimum)
18 U.S.C. § 924(j)
Causing death during § 924(c) violation
(Death, life, or any term of years)
18 U.S.C. § 924(o)
Conspiracy to violate § 924(c)
(20 years or more)
Enforce the laws that already exist.
It is a massive task to suddenly enforce these laws nationwide.
I would like to see about four states volunteer for participation in an ATF crackdown on felons in possession of firearms.
In the four states, the ATF could flood those states with ATF agents who's primary mission is to arrest felons in possession of firearms.
After four years of really hard enforcement, I think firearms used in the commission of a crime, would drop drastically.
Other states would be waiting in line for such enforcement in their states.
Nothing bitter about the truth.
Good ole boy white privilege let this murderer walk free. He should have been hung, fried or shot which ever was in use back then. Had good ole boy white privilege done what was nessesary in 1981 and not patted his backside people would be alive today and their would be no thread.
All laws should be enforced all of the time. If the ATF can't do the job the directors should step down and let real leaders step in.
