I have read many articles about gun control. Then I read in the paper about felons in possession of guns and they get a few days’ free lodging.
If we want to stop repeat offenses, there needs to be follow through with automatic penitentiary time. A slap on the wrist (a few days in jail) is no deterrent for a felon.
Why are the charges being dropped or reduced to that slap on the wrist? I think the legal system is too ready to reduce court time for a plea.
If people spit on the sidewalk, slap their hands.
If they use a weapon to commit a crime, send them to the Big House.
