LOL

Somewhere I have an avocado green electric pressure cooker. I bet the rubber gasket needs replacing. I was always somewhat intimidated by it, but when I got a big "mess of turnip greens" from my grandmother in West Georgia, that is what I used. I got that cooker with green stamos from Piggly Wiggly.

Stopping Gun Violence

The answer to the control of gun violence. The guns are not the problem. The problem are the people that uses the gun to do bodily harm to others. The problem is criminals that use the gun to prey on their chosen victims; that are usually unarmed.

THE PENALTY for using the gun against another person NEEDS TO BE MADE SO SEVERE, until a gun will be the last thing a person will want to use against another person. Lost of freedom and/or life is not something that anyone would want; even criminals. THE PENALTY should BE MANDATORY to have THE DESIRED IMPACT FOR ANY ILLEGAL USE OF FIREARMS.

Our police have rules of when and when not to use their firearms. Law abiding citizens that possess firearms are responsible gun owners and using their guns against another person other than in self defense is not something that usually happen. Criminals don't have rules for using their guns. I feel it is time to take these criminals off the street and away from our society or make them think of other ways to attempt to take someones property or life. Give victims a chance to fight back; if they so desire.

My suggestion has nothing to do with what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School. A person that goes to that extreme is ready and don't mind dying. OUR STREETS are becoming UNSAFE; because of the criminals that prey on others to take their property and in the process will kill (Usually with a HAND gun) if that is what they feel should be done to accomplish their goals.

I suggest:
A person using a gun ILLEGALLY AND NOT in self defense that INJUREs another person should draw a MANDATORY LIFE sentence in prison.

A person using a gun ILLEGALLY AND not in self defense that kill another person should draw a MANDATORY LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE sentence.

A person using a gun ILLEGALLY AND NOT in self defense that kill two or more people, shall be put to death.

There should be much STIFFER PENALTIES for people using guns in the commission of any crime; even when no one is injured or killed.

IT'S THE PENALTY FOR ILLEGALLY USING A FIREARM THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED. IT'S THE PENALTY! IT'S THE PENALTY! NOT THE GUN!

Thanks for your time.

After all this

....

weeks later I still see pressure cookers on sale at dept. stores.

I still see remote control toys on sale at dept stores.

I stopped by hobby store and sure enough the rocket igniters were still on sale.

My local corner store is still selling pay as you go cell phones.

Where is the LIBERAL OUTRAGE? Children need to be protected from these 99.99999999999999999999999999% of the time harmless items.

Here we have 2 or 3 terrorists out of 301 million Americans actually doing something, from a liberal standpoint isn't that justification for DHS to restrict the rights of the other 300,999,998 other Americans?
