179. Why not lock up the criminals?
That seems to be the best way to make sure criminals cannot get guns.

By letting a criminal back on the street, the state is telling me "he is reformed, he has paid his debt to society; he can move in next door to you, wave hello to your wife every morning, and walk the street where your children play."

Then, by prohibiting him from owning a firearm, the state turns right around and says, "but for crying out loud, don't let him have a gun, he'll kill somebody!"

Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this picture?
