Sadly, guns make their way illegally onto the streets every day, and at an alarming rate. And yes, in this case (as noted above) the punishment did NOT fit the crime. When I was pregnant with my son I lived in a rather upscale community which boasted a near zero crime rate. While seated by the front window inside a McDonalds (I know, I know, don't ask! lol) a car drove by and Bam, I was sent flying nearly 15 feet out of the booth, hit in the face by the displaced glass by a 22 caliber bullet which grazed my face as well. A "random drive-by shooting". Thugs with guns. Proof that anything can happen, even in the best of neighborhoods. Thankfully my son and I are both fine now. I was and still am a strong believer in legal gun ownership, and the right to protect and defend. However I did learn to appreciate the need for strengthening our gun laws, to make it more difficult for guns to end up in the wrong hands, and to make ALL crimes involving the use of guns felonies. @Jen LaVertu and LadyTee..... Sorry my comment here is probably a bit late in coming, but if there is still time to do so, I think you two are spot-on in saying the charges of 'assault' were bulls%*t, and the more voices present at the perp's court dates, the better! (Stand up, be heard, and get results. Or sit in the back of McDonalds away from the windows.)

David: I wish I could bring your statement here to everyones' attention. You are one of the reasons this Country has lost class and dignity. First, Nazi Germany was not Facist. Second, what do you think the "government" is going to do with a streetrecord? Third, "Idiot or Facist" (Italian)? For expressing an opinion? What word would you use for your tactic? Hmmm.....Nazi? (You can't be a Facist unless your business runs the town). And, what was the other word you used? Cut down on the caffeine. Alot. Sorry I took a while--back surgery. But, your ciomment remains unkind and unwarrented. AlanKovner '

I'm retired. There could be a "Watchmans' List. We had it in the Bronx. (In court). Never, ever will you keep guns out of the wrong hands; you cabnnot teach a lesson to someone who would shoot with little or no provocation. What you can do is get them off the street. Your Judge is an jackass. However, it will take involving many gov. employees (and that ain't easy): Police Captain, Mayor, Isreal, the bum who sold this town to Real Estate-now we have smog, the Town & Village newspapers. Gov. employees need to have someone watching them. (I'm not talking Police. They have to face the "brave" people who need a gun to make point). As many as can be persuaded, requested or shamed in to attending. The Judge elected or appointed? Elected? Easy. Appointed? By whom? Why? So they know, do nothing, or be incompetant (which is the word I'd use for the judge), and many will be knocking, and telling many others.First, a meeting & a place. A little organization. Leave message here. I have had serious back surgery but usually I can make a meeting--or a court date. Don't be discouraged, you would be amazed at how vulnerable they are. And, usually don't think they are. That's their weakness . Oh, 50 signatures good, 100 better. AlanKovner,H.S. 8 ' And a hundred (or more) signatures. That will stir-up the cauldron. You don't a lot

what do you have to fear fear sounds like your hiding something more cameras to catch the criminals most law abiding citizens agree with it
