You know, I read your OP and I'm struck by something entirely BEYOND the point of this being about guns.
EVERYTHING you listed in your op ...EVERY last item..is a *NON* Violent crime and quite literally a victim-less one. It's a crime against regulation
and letter of law, not against society to have caused victims. Yet, almost all carry felony level time. (Over 1 year min. confinement) and ... EXCUSE
ME?!?! 10 *YEARS* for a damned MAGAZINE??
Here is what I propose.... We take every last one of these mental midgets in elected office who has EVER proposed a min. sentence over 1 year for a
non-violent AND victim-less crime (we all know a few others without mentioning them) and FORCE THEM to serve 1 12 month 'tour' inside a correctional
facility. Pay them their full salary, benefits and pension credit for time inside, as punishment isn't the point. (Well..maybe..but it's not the
MAIN point.. )
Let them learn how ENDLESS 365 days can be to count off in a situation that is misery on a stick, day in and day out. THEN let them get the slightest
taste of how completely DESTROYED a life is once coming out with a felony conviction for *ANYTHING*.
They toss around YEARS of lost life to human warehousing as if discussing the points assigned on a traffic ticket. We need these arrogant bastards out
of power. They just don't have touch in reality for the impact their BAD ideas have on REAL people.
