I believe that every crime where a weapon is used should carry a far greater jail term prior to the actual crime time. In the case of a murder with a gun, capital punishment. After the jury finds the criminal guilty, a three panel set of judges reviews the case and tapes of the court proceedings, renders a a final vote that all the proceedings were correct and followed the law. The criminal is then scheduled for death and the task completed with-in 30 days. In those states where capital punishment is not legal, life in prison with no parole. Mental health is a giant problem. States cannot afford the costs of providing the necessary care for every person in need. I do not know the answer but another set of laws that restrict the law abiding citizens of this country the right to own firearms is not the answer.
