"Harris pleaded guilty last March after he was arrested in 2007, attempting to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers.

The libs want to pass MORE gun laws, but this guy only gets 366 days for buying fully automatic machine guns WITH silencers.

I believe that this gentleman did have some criminal record before this event. Why he's not going away for 5 to 10, I have no idea.

Yes, you're right he was an ex-con. And if he had purchased these guns, either he or one of his associates could've used these guns to kill people on the streets of Atlanta.

Why he's not going away for 5 to 10, I have no idea.

TI is a top rapper in the 'game' right now. I don't have a problem with the sentence.

A year in prison PLUS 1500 hours traveling throughout the country talking against guns/drugs. I think the Govt gets more out of that than the extra 4 years in prison.

So, honestly, had this been Toby Keith or Trace Atkins, what would your view have been? My guess, is that many on this thread would have had a different tone and totally different view.

The support Timothy McVeigh got 14 years ago galls me to this day.
