Growing up during the 1950s and 60s, everyone I knew had a shotgun or 22, I never knew anyone who owned a handgun. I have no understanding of all this need for 200 guns and high powered, automatic weapons. As a child, I never knew of anyone who died from a gunshot. That only happened in movies. What is going on???

Penalties for crimes committed while using a firearm ( armed robbery) should be steep.

A felon should be scared to get caught in possession of a gun as the penalty should be steep.

They are not.
Thugs are roaming the street with lengthy arrest records of crimes while using a firearm.

Lil Boosi was roaming the streets with only a 5pm verbal curfew imposed. ( which he ignored )

And why is that--firearms are so very accessible.

What country did you grow up in sjmays? I grew up in the same time frame and there WERE shootings that resulted in murder. Bizarre observation on your part.

Did you grow up here? If there was a murder, it was front-page news for a year it was so unusual. I never knew anyone who had a gunshot wound or was murdered either one.
