34. how gun control/crime mandatory

 

sentencing

10 year min for having a gun during a crime of domestic violence (not an option for the judge or jury really by law if u have gun with u during the act)

10 year min for using gun involving children (state claims she fired in-front of kids as they were beside him)

Mandatory Min sentencing in all cases is a bad idea. You take the ability of the Judge and even the state to recommend less sever sentences based on the unique circumstances of a case. Specifically in this case had the judge had the power she may have gotten only probation or shorter sentence but the judge had no choice and State Atty Angela Corey was proud of the 20 year sentence.

and yes the gun control movement has pushed aggressively for Mandatory sentencing in any crime using a gun preventing judges from weighing the specific of the cases that come before them.
