New gun laws necessary
I recently sent the following letter to Gov. Jerry Brown:
Dear Gov. Brown:
I suggest the following changes be made in our school buildings.
When a vicious killer enters a classroom waving a gun and shooting, have every room wired so a teacher can push a button that automatically locks the doors of every room in the building. Each room has another button that will unlock only the door in that specific room, allowing people to escape as it becomes safe.
Upon lockdown, a non-toxic sleeping gas is released only in the room where the intruder is.
How would the cost be paid?
A tax of 100 percent would be collected on the price of every gun and box of ammunition sold and registered to the buyer. Guns and ammunition brought from out of state would be charged the same way.
Every gun must be registered. If someone is caught with an unregistered weapon, they would be fined $1,000 and jailed for six months. The registered owner would agree to that penalty when they signed for the weapon. The penalty would not be served in a regular jail. A tent, holding-city would be built and supplied with cold running water and basic food would be supplied. The prisoners would be charged $50 per day.
Due to the special nature of the crime, no taxpayer funds would be used to hire a lawyer.
These suggestions may appear radical, but stricter gun laws have not been effective. Let us stop talking and stop the horrible slaughter/murder of our children. If new laws are necessary to save our children’s lives, then we must pass them and stop this endless talk that is and has been futile.
Don’t let our children die while politics and special interests continue to talk, talk and talk about stricter gun controls being all that’s needed. Kick some political tails and save the children.
