Comparing the NRA to urban street thugs with guns is like comparing NASCAR to drunken drivers.
The concept that we must all be treated like criminals because criminals exist has always annoyed me.
If the government and the courts were serious about arresting, prosecuting, and putting criminals away for a very long time, the rest of us could be left pretty much alone. Eliminate parole-—a 20, 30, 40 year sentence for a gun crime should be served—every day of it.
Our swinging door jails are a big part of the problem. Our lawyers, our prosecutors, and our judges are another large part of the problem.
Of course, another part of the problem is our government giving women increased welfare for each baby she bears out of wedlock is not good, either. We all know what happens to too many of these babies when they enter their teens and early adulthood.
