U.S. is too soft on many illegal offenses [UPDATED]Published 9:27am Wednesday, April 17, 2013 Updated 11:43am Wednesday, April 17, 2013
On gun control: do you own a gun? I do, it’s not registered, I am not an outlaw. My weapon has been used to hunt small game and at one time, deer.
If guns have to be registered, only law-abiding citizens will have unregistered guns; the outlaws will have guns.
Maybe we will have to go to — heaven forbid — third-world country’s punishments. Stapling you, lose one finger and so on.
Drunk driving: first offense loose your driver’s license for a year, as is done in Sweden.
We have become too soft and lenient on a lot of offenses. Some poor person who lifts a loaf of bread to feed his family gets more jail time then a convicted drunk. I don’t believe that’s right.
Create more jobs, build more jails, that will help the economy with more jobs and build infrastructure, keeping the misfits off the streets for sometime.
