Gun control? What about truth in sentencing & permissive judges?

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

The letter telling of the tragic and senseless shooting in Baton Rogue, Louisiana — "My daughter was senselessly murdered; let's prevent another" — omits relevant facts. The shooter had recently been in jail. Released early, he committed this despicable act. Like many criminals, he had a well-established rap sheet. He, for example, stole a rifle from his grandmother, who has nothing to do with him. Another crime was in violating Louisiana law when he was found with a loaded handgun at LSU. The judge dismissed the charge, however, and asked the man to do "three random acts of kindness".

Bonnie Hunt's heartfelt letter, which supported gun control efforts, could have more plausibly supported truth in sentencing and condemned permissive judges.
