There's already a state law prohibiting it. That father broke the law.
There's also a federal law prohibiting a felon from possessing any firearm (a mandatory 5 year sentence). He broke that one too.
Now it's up to the judicial system punish him. The legislature doesn't need to do anything.
I am not doubting the first two statements. But A)which law are you referring to...there are so many and when did it come out that he was a felon?
Last sentence. A) ahhh yeah...like the judical system punish all the bad guys to the fullest extent of the law You are correct they don't need to make more laws....you know that....I know that...most anyone that is NOT a gun hater knows that. Problem is THEY DON'T.
Maybe the legislature should focus on making JUDGES and the courts apply MANDATORY AND I MEAN MANDATORY PENALTIES. No plea bargains, no 'he had a rough life or what about the kids or you have to understand the circumstances'. Garbage
The 5 year penalty is SUPPOSED TO BE MANDATORY. Is it ever? Not.
Now a bleeding heart will probably say 'ooohhhh what about the children who will take care of them?' BS...it will be the same ones that take care of them now most likely, the tax payers and social services.
The paper says 'the father'....was he a FATHER...or like many ...just a sperm donating, free loader, living with his latest incubator?
