A Problem With Gun Violence

With all of the recent tragedies involving guns, here is one clear example of what can be done.

Two teenagers were arrested for stealing 22 guns from a gun shop. They got 21 days–less than a day per gun–in juvenile detention. Even their father has said that is not enough and something needs to be done, as both of the teenagers already have significant arrest records.

Enforce the laws we already have on the books and make criminals pay! How simple is that? And to give such a light sentence for someone stealing guns to sell and put on the street, especially someone who already has a criminal history…how much more self-destructive can we, as a society, be?!
