I'm sorry, are you advocating life in prison for any sort of violent crime? This is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard you say. It isn't practical. First, Prisons only have so much room. To say nothing of how expensive it is to house someone their entire life, to feed them and care for them, when they could otherwise be a productive member of society. Second, life in prison for anything short of rape or murder is just too harsh. The punishment should fit the crime. Also, people change. I mean, people should have the chance to redeem themselves. Isn't that one of the basic tenets of your religion? Let's be realistic here. Very few crimes
How are you ever reasonable sure? You aren't. Not to mention, you can't just sentence someone to prison "until we feel like letting you go." It's not ethical or legal.Root problem number Two: We should never release a felon from prison unless we're reasonably sure he/she is no longer a threat to society. If we're reasonably sure they are no longer a threat to society, WHY should they lose their rights as a citizen? If they are unworthy of their rights as a citizen, or if the nature of their crime is such that they can never be trusted with arms again (ie forcible rapist), then WHY are we letting them out at all??
(because if they want a gun, they can find a way to get one!)
I'm sorry Goshin, you have no contact with reality, do you?The two questions are related, you see.
Get the real-deal dangerous criminals off the streets and keep them off the streets, and guns won't really be an issue.
