    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?
