When ever I hear of a inner city or drive by shooting, or any crime that involves a gun...I always ask.."Where did they get the gun" most times it is bought off the street...stolen gun....for around 50 bucks. The the rif raf thug uses the gun to break into someones house, rob a licquor or convenience store....all to buy more drugs and guns...and maybe he or she shoots someone in the process...HOW TO STOP IT...
Well what if we had a law that said..."if you are caught using/having a gun in a crime, B&E,hold up etc...and/or you are caught selling illegal firearms on the street...stolen guns etc....the penalty is life imprisonment...no parole"
Sound too tough? I don't think so...we want to STOP the murder or shooting before...not after...and cold blooded pre meditated attempted murder should carry the same as murder...which is what someone is committing when they hold up a store, break into a house etc
Also it would send the price of stolen guns sky high, because nobody is going to traffic in stolen guns for 50 bucks a pop.
Any thoughts ?
