Four Gun Laws I Would Repeal First (If I Was a Benevolent Dictator)
#11
I would repeal three:

1 All
2 of
3 Them

But my nation would be run like an un-moderated message board, so there's that.

This should be #1 on the list. Fuck NYS and the SAFE act. They want it they can live with it.
Life long prohibitions are the #1 form of gun control, and it's not just felons. Anyone that is so dangerous that the gov can never trust them to so much as touch a firearm doesn't belong outside a jail.
if they are never to be trusted with a firearm then the gov needs to make the case why it's OK for them to live next door to me.
There needs to be a road to restore rights after any prohibitive conviction. They want it both ways...as usual.


I love that argument. (sarcasm)

You really think they let people out of prison because they are "reformed", or because they have "paid their debt" and will no longer behave as criminals?

Give me a break.
"Prison overcrowding" anyone?

No - just because you're "out of prison" you don't get a pass.


I'm good with giving people a "road to restoration", but it would be a very limited, and difficult one.

Stop locking up people for non violent drug possession and the prison overcrowding problem is solved overnight

Then you can focus on the real criminals

The topic isn't "Potheads for looser drug sentencing".

My take was that he was commenting on the way the prison system should work, not the way it does.

My changes in that regard would be to eliminate prison sentences for some violations, lengthen them for others, and increase the number of crimes that call for execution, in addition to streamlining the process to actually carrying it out.

I do agree that if they are deemed "safe" enough to roam the streets, they should have full rights restored. If they ARE reformed, they won't be a problem, and if they AREN'T reformed, the prohibition won't stop them anyway.
