    IMO, if the crime was something very minor, then after a waiting period the individual should be able to own a gun again. However, if the gun was used as coercion in a crime, then I think the individual should not ever be able to legally own a gun again. Kind of like once your right infringes on the rights of another . . .

    There should be an "other" option.

    That's generally a felony already, which means you are forever flagged in NICS, which means you can never buy a gun from an FFL, and if you are found with one from a private sale, you go back to prison.

    Why not just ban that person from committing another crime?

    Better yet, ban crime.

    I watched the "reality of a knife attack" vid connected to your stick fighting vid. Good stuff.

While having stricter punishment for criminals who use weapons during a crime with a mandatory sentence of 20 years.
    So basically you want to create a class of gun crimes and then consider that class of gun crimes equivalent to, say, murder or robbery with regard to punishment. I disagree with such approaches as they are illogical and do nothing to curb real crime.
