Shooting spree at Batman Aurora premier
Would a different gun control or security policy prevent this horrible theater massacre?
What do you think about the current gun control regulations?
Chicago has the strongest gun laws yet has the highest volume of gun crime, best to give automatic 5 years in jail to anyone causing a criminal act with a firearm
The "Three Strikes" law has indeed reduced violent crime, to the horror of criminals.
One conviction for a violent felony gives the offender a long prison sentence and a stern warning: if he repeats the crime, the next penalty will be much harsher.
If he commits a second violent crime, he gets a longer sentence in a harsher prison, and a stern warning that if he commits a third violent crime he will face the death penalty -- no questions asked or pleas bargained.
The third conviction automatically labels the criminal an habitual offender and the death penalty is automatic.
