7. Columbia...
Edited on Sun Feb-01-04 09:52 PM by CO Liberal
...background checks just don't cut it. Heavy prosecution and incarceration of violent criminals who use firearms would.

Too little, too late. What you propose sounds good, but it's like locking the barn door after the horse gets out.

Sure, the bad guys should be punished AFTER committing a crime. But I'm also interested in preventing the crime in the first place.
