That's a lot. Drug dealing, manufacturing and construction defects due to cutting corners, participation in gangs maybe, robbery for sure....a lot of death penalty.

Yup. Those the breaks. Nobody is forcing anyone to make those choices.

I don’t know about life in prison but drunk driving penalties need to be harsher and more consistent Imo

Getting caught with an illegal firearm = getting your trigger fingers cut off. Think outside of the box people.

Re: From my cold, dead. hands! Except in Detroit and Chicago

One of the points the NRA has made for decades is that we shouldn't pass new laws when the existing ones aren't being enforced. Its nice to see more people adopting this position that we need better enforcement of existing laws. Its also nice to see more people want longer sentences and more death penalties. Lots of common ground being found here.

No it isn't.

In any case people don't get the death penalty for waling into a maill and firing a gun either.

Re: From my cold, dead. hands! Except in Detroit and Chicago

just found this about that guy. https://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/23576

"I had some people who came back from the World War II Museum in Louisiana," Mel said. "The government spent $38 million on it. They said mine's ten times better."

"You want to see the Hitler room?" Mel asked. He flicked a switch and our eyes were dazzled by red Swastika flags. Mel has Nazi bicycles, Nazi beer steins, Nazi potato masher grenades. He has a mustard yellow uniform owned by Hitler. Part of the room is reserved for horrific Holocaust artifacts: prisoner uniforms from Auschwitz, corpse tongs from Dachau, soap made from human fat.

Re: From my cold, dead. hands! Except in Detroit and Chicago

Shooter in rural northern CA kills 4 and injures 10

standard

Quote:
Rampaging through a small Northern California town, a gunman took aim on Tuesday at people at an elementary school and several other locations, killing at least four and wounding at least 10 before he was fatally shot by the police, the local sheriff’s office said.

There were at least seven separate shooting scenes in or near Rancho Tehama Reserve, an unincorporated community of about 1,500 people, Phil Johnston, assistant sheriff of Tehama County, told reporters. The gunman, later identified as Kevin Janson Neal, 44, entered the elementary school but was unable to get into the classrooms because school officials had heard gunshots outside the building and locked the doors, he said.

Children, school staff and parents huddled inside under desks and in offices. Outside, Neal raised his rifle and began to fire. Police said in the hours leading up to that moment, he had killed his wife and hidden her body before beginning a bloody rampage across this community about 135 miles north of Sacramento.

Neal, who also tried to open doors and get inside, fired at the school for six agonizing minutes, shattering windows and shooting through wooden walls, authorities said. One bullet struck a child, while others were wounded with broken glass. Neal eventually “became frustrated” and gave up, abandoning the school, Phil Johnston, an assistant sheriff in Tehama County, told reporters.
Hey some people need to hunt and stuff so I guess giving children a legit warzone experience is just something we have to live with in USA#1

Responsible parents would arm their children and teach them to fire back.

Re: From my cold, dead. hands! Except in Detroit and Chicago

Why didn't the teachers return fire, suppress the suspect and flank him? The only thing that will stop a guy with a gun is coordinated military tactics. A Drill Sargent for every elementary school is the only way to go.

What is the law regarding eyesight and driving? Its pretty surprising that similar standards are not inplace for firearms.

Some states allow blind people to get a hunting license.

They need to increase the minimum of gun ownership of these Rugrats from toddler to elementary school I believe. These three year olds are going wild this year.

Re: From my cold, dead. hands! Except in Detroit and Chicago

One of the early comments under that story:

Quote:
Headline: Washington Post still lying this year.

Three-year-olds are not "toddlers," at least not beyond the day of their third birthdays.

"A toddler is a child 12 to 36 months old." So, even a day after your 3rd birthday, you're not a toddler.

Why do anti-gunners always find it necessary to lie?
