Any thoughts? Is that too severe? Please tell me why, but try to do it without a car comparison, I dare ya.I admit to Atrius and the Anonymous commenter that my idea of removing rights for an accident is extreme. In fact on Robert Farago's blog, I was swayed by his suggestion that the punishment should fit the crime, so to speak, and if no one is injured, that be taken into consideration concerning the jail time and probation. But in my opinion, anyone who "forgets" there's a round in the chamber, even once, has proven to be dangerous and irresponsible and therefore should relinquish his guns and gun rights. Same with dropping a gun, no second chances.
Please notice how you guys say there's no such thing as an "accident," but only "negligence" when it suits your argument. Now, all of a sudden we're talking about "accidents" that can happen to anybody.
I don't buy it. "I say one strike you're out." And I say with a policy like that the world would be a much safer place.
