I fail to see a downside to any of the above.joe sixpack said:if you threw me in prison right now for 25 years 1 of 3 things would happen..
1. i turn into a blood thirst animal to survive, probably killing other inmates and getting yet more time tacked on.
2. i hang my self.
3. i become a victim repeatedly rapped & beaten till i either commit suicide or get killed.
Criminals who use guns to commit crimes make it harder for law abiding gun owners, like you and me, to enjoy our right to bear arms. I have no pity on them. Society today has become too mamby pamby. Worrying about if the guy that murdered a whole family was loved by his father. Or did his uncle touch him inappropriately? Who gives a damn? He murdered an entire family. Introduce him to Old Sparky or lock him away until he rots. If he used a gun, I say double the minimum sentence or 20 years, whichever is greater.
The same goes for the crackhead that robbed a convenient store with a toy gun. I am tired of the scum of society giving anti-gun politicians more excuses to infringe on my rights. I don't care if it were a toy or a real gun.
