    ok enough is enough … Time to set a new law in this state and enforce it to the max ..
    1. Use a gun in a robbery without fireing it you get 15 yrs and you serve the time then serve the time for the crime no early parole.
    2. Use a gun and fire it and not kill someone you get 20 yrs in prison then serve the time for the crime.
    3. Use a gun fire it and kill someone in a crime you get a death sentence …. and if its proven that the person did kill someone and found guilty walk him in one door and carry them out the other .
    Dont think about the new law for 6 yrs PASS it now….
    Guns are for collecting , sports ( target,and hunting for food ) defending your country and protecting your family and home
