Relative hailed for alerting police to guns in house

YOUNGSTOWN

Police said a family member of a 23-year-old man facing weapons and drug charges did the right thing by calling officers and allowing them to search their West Glenaven Avenue home.

The family member “might have saved his life,” said Police Chief Rod Foley. “The kid was up to no good.” The family member “probably stopped a lot of potential crime.”

Getting rid of the guns will allow many to live. LET'S GET ALL OF THE GUNS OFF THE STREETS!

How about an automatic 5 year sentence,no probation no plea bargain,for illegally possessing a firearm?maybe even "gun" check points instead of DUI check points.

Taking guns away from citizens will not stop crime or murders, but could actually increase crime because criminals will have no fear of victims being armed.

The Press never publishes or discusses how many thousands of lives are saved each year by armed citizens. They only publish and discuss how many lives are lost to criminal gun activity, because they want to slant the story and sway public opinion.

It will never be possible to remove all guns from the street because criminals find a way to get a gun, so lets concentrate on the criminal use of a firearm in committing a crime and punish that criminal severely. Lets quit the liberal policies and enforce strict action against gun violence. No more plea bargains. No more early releases for good behavior, no more soft judges and courts. If you use a gun, you are going to jail for a long time, or you are going to be executed for murder. Tough love is not easy, but we HAVE to take a stand and do this right.
