Here you have a guy convicted of two armed robberies.....sentenced to 9 years, out in half the time for "good behavior" and robs 5 people...at gun point...as soon as he gets out.... Prosecutors: Man robbed 5 victims in 10 days before Thanksgiving — while on parole for 2 armed robberies My solution to this problem? Under my plan? He would still be in prison... I support a life sentence on any criminal who uses a gun for an actual gun crime..... and 30 years if a criminal is caught in possession of a gun, even if they are not using it at that moment for crime. This will dry up gun crime over night. Criminals will stop using guns for robberies, rapes and murders.....and those who do will be gone forever...... Criminals will also stop walking around with guns in their pants......which is the leading cause of random gang shootings in our cities. if they are stopped by police, with a gun in their pants, they are gone for 30 years...they will stop carrying those guns, and random gang violence will end. You implement this with two other things... 1) No More Bargaining Away the Gun Charge.........it must be against the law to bargain away a gun charge as part of a plea deal....this stops. 2) When a criminal is arrested for any crime, and booked in...they will be read the announcement that any use of a crime is a life sentence without parole, owning or carrying a gun as a felon is a 30 year sentence without parole....when they are released from custody...the same will be read to them again....when they meet their parole officer it will be read to them again.....the U.S. government will also buy and send out Public announcements on this policy on t.v. radio. and cable...... That is how you stop gun crime over night. Mass shooters are different..... but with only 93 people killed in mass public shootings in 2018, they are not the major problem in gun crime. The value in my plan......it actually targets the individuals actually using guns to commit crimes and murder people.... It does not require new background check laws, it does not require gun licensing, licensing gun owners, gun registration, new taxes, fees or regulations on guns... By making gun crime a life sentence, criminals will stop using guns for crime and will stop carrying guns around for protection..... Also....a nurse, with a legal gun, driving from Pennsylvania, to New Jersey, will not be considered a gun criminal.....that will end. Criminals with a record of crime, caught with a gun will get 30 years, no deals.....and criminals who use guns for actual crime...robbing the local store, rape, robbery, murder.....life without parole... This, of course, eliminates the need for more gun control laws...we can already do this..... Mass shooters 1) end gun free zones 2) get the media to stop covering mass shootings like it is the Oscars..... 3) We are already seeing this...get people who know these nuts to report these nuts.... 4) Make sure the police who know these nuts arrest these nuts when they have the chance so they will pop on background checks.... What does each do to stop mass shooters.... 1) keeps shooters from targeting people, since they target gun free zones. 2) The media not covering it like they are the criminal oscars deters copycats...just like they stopped covering teen suicides to stop the copycat effect 3) The only way to stop mass shooters, since they commit no other crime, is for family, coworkers and neighbors to report their violent behavior....the Odessa shooter should have felonies for the crimes he was committing but they didn't report his shooting his weapon from his front porch.... 4) The Parkland shooter had 33 contacts with police and numerous contacts with police at his school.....due to Obama's "Promise Program" the police never arrested him for the felonies he committed....so he didn't pop on the background check..
