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.

Haven't there been several football players who have actually tried to take guns onto planes?

The links connecting my brain cells. The judge that would throw the book at this woman exists only in the fevered minds of conspiracy loving Rush Limbaugh listeners.

OK, back up the truck here...

 

We're not talking about the judge... we're talking about the prosecutor.  He is indeed throwing the book after her and pursuing the maximum mandatory sentence.

 

You're assuming an awful, awful lot that a judge would use discretion and not apply the mandatory sentence if she is convicted.

Didn't read the comments on this thread, but this type of stuff infuriates me.

She should get a misdemeanor charge and pay a fine.

Locking her up will do nothing but cost taxpayers money. For a decade, would cost a few hundred thousand dollars.

And not to mention, she could be out working instead and paying taxes instead.

OK... I'll try to not laugh too hard the next time G5, stirs or one of the other more conservative posters talks about gut feelings and you get all outraged.

All you need to do is look at our success rates. Hint: his is about zero.
