Opening Arguments

See ya later

Here's a way to get guns off the streets I suspect all sides in the debate can agree to:

Ernest R. Snow, 44, Indianapolis, was sentenced to 15 years in prison today by U.S. District Judge Larry J. McKinney following his guilty plea to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

[. . .]

Because Snow was found to have three prior qualifying felony convictions he was sentenced as an Armed Career Criminal. Such persons are subject to a mandatory minimum 15 years in prison.

Some of us might make it "three strikes and you're out" instead of four, and some might argue that a 15-year-minimum is too much or not enough, but does anybody want to stick up for Mr. Snow's rights?

I've never had a problem with law enforcement or government taking away guns from criminals, jailing them, sentencing them accordingly, and not allowing them to possess them again.

It's the taking of guns away from the rest of us that I have a problem with.

Yes, you're allowed to have a gun until you do something stupid with it - then all bets are off, ...

I heard that AZ has now passed laws that allow carry WITHOUT a permit...that makes THREE states.

(and shooting a perp in MY part of town wouldn't be called STUPID...but rather "urban renewal"...save the taxpayers a TON of money.)
Damn fine way to help the economy.
