Now let's see how far they go with these "weapons charges". So often in the past these weapons charges are dropped or minimized, but these charges are just as serious as the drugs and should be treated as such. Drug convictions will send a criminal to jail for 1 to 10 years, while a federal gun violation can be 10 to 20 years!

If we have the opportunity to convict for federal weapons violations, let's start using them. So many violations by under aged users, illegally obtained firearms, illegally transferred weapons, stolen weapons, etc. So, why don't we see convictions and maximum sentences? Why have a law on the books if you don't apply and convict?

We are getting sick and tired of anti-gun people trying to pass more anti-gun laws and even taking guns away, yet we see no progressive government action in following the laws already passed and sending criminals away for the illegal use of firearms. Especially those who are under 21 and using firearms to commit crimes. What gives, folks?

I suspect the real answer is our federal government does not want to handle these "minor" cases and prefers to go after "bigger" cases. But, all across America, these so called "minor" cases add up, and the criminals are getting the message. Once they get out of prison early for drugs violations, they go right back to illegal gun use and crimes against society. This is a real problem and is growing because our government refuses to address it.

Guns are victimizing America. Getting them all off the streets is priority one. Only law enforcement and our military have any need to be armed. LET'S GET THE ALL OF THE STREETS!

When our civillian deaths by gunfire far exceed our deaths in all combat zones by our military then we have a problem.

Excel Guns are not doing a damn thing to America . It's the nut cases on welfare who feel they should get everything for FREE, no matter who it belongs to.. The demoncrats have made a group of people who feel that they are entitled . The other reason we are having these problems is that the demoncrats in their wisdom back in the 70's shut down all mental hospitals. they felt that we should made stream these people. It was just another feel good law that they created. Now they want to make half arse laws that are also feel good laws.
