That's kind of where I am at, some people harp on how important rules and gun safety are to responsible owners then think that honest mistakes with deadly weapons should be treated like a first offense traffic violation because enforcing rules show that guns are indeed dangerous when treated carelessly.

Can you seriously not see the difference between her having the gun in the car and telling the cop it's there and her making "mistakes with a deadly weapon?"
She didn't have it out brandishing it... she didn't accidentally shoot someone... she didn't leave it out in the open for a kid to find...
Can we get a little perspective here?
Again, I'm not saying she wasn't wrong for not knowing/following the law and yes, there should be some consequence... a REASONABLE consequence... not 3 years in prison.
