    Since other stuff has not been real successful, I would like to see MANDATORY LIFE SENTENCE for anyone convicted of any crime using a gun or facsimile thereof one.

    That's crazy. Since in some states even possessing a concealed or even unlicensed firearm is a crime you would put anybody who broke those laws behind bars forever.

    And haven't you ever heard of some homeowner being charged with a crime for doing what common sense should tell you should be a legal defense of self or family? Let the punishment for the crime. There is a big difference between some screwed up 18 year old robbing a convenience store with a toy gun and a gang of full grown career criminals holding up a bank with AK-47s.

    Convicted is not quite the same as charged.

    Salley, you keeping us a running total? I have some others in other threads too. I remember you saying something to the effect that licensed gun holders didn't see situations that resulted in a need to defend themselves.

    Serious question. Are you surprised at just how often it does, indeed, happen?

    Boils down to liberal politicians and liberal celebraties who either have massive state and federal law enforcement protecting them or have personal bodyguards are the ones who want to take away our rights to defend ourselves and loved ones.

    @Bayou Tiger Wait, so the AR-15 didn't take it upon itself to shoot the guy? I thought they were "killing machines."
