Isn’t it time that we, the public, let both the criminals and the judiciary know that we have had enough of this gun violence?

My suggestion: if you are caught with a gun in the commission of a crime, 10 years; if you fire that gun, 15 years; if you wound someone with that gun, 20 years: and if you kill someone, life with no parole.

We have to let the gun-toting criminals know we are not going to put up with it any longer.
