They shouldn't be allowed ...

"Geez, people," meaning this isn't a joke and is, instead, to be taken seriously? Hm.

Hasn't really, over the last span of decades. Hasn't been able to keep pace with the tide of crime, at all, IMO.
What's left, then? A fairly short list of options. Simple options, actually. One step would be tougher penalties, of the sort defined by the laws. All that's needed is to simply stop coddling criminals and stop watering down sentences. Another step would be hardened facilities, to deny access to criminals, or to at least raise the cost of access. Another simple step would be hardened targets, the simplest measure of all, since it could be achieved in large part by halting the disarmament and legal evisceration of citizens who choose to act in their own defense.

I am pretty sure we agree
Indeed, I was being sarcastic. We agree.

Progress under Bloomberg? It's impossible for that man to really think about the truth.
