Where did you get your "33,000" number from, Dan??? Or was it just a slight exageration?
I corrected it to 32,000 and you accepted that number as legitimate. What are you trying to prove now?

When you actively find excuses to not consider the majority of the 32,000 gun deaths every year, you are dismissing them as if they don't matter.
If you think they do matter, then what should we do to prevent them?
I am not saying they don't matter. I am dismissing them because there is nothing you or I can do about them. Or do you think you can stop someone who is determined to kill themself???

I don't think it will get in front of a jury. I think a judge will decide. I hope he has the legal discretion to consider the circumstances before imposing a penalty.
And I agree that laws must be prosecuted consistently. But it's vital for judges to have the legal discretion to assign punishments on a case by case basis. Mandatory sentencing has done much, much more harm than good.
Any parent who isn't deterred by the report of the death of a toddler won't be deterred by putting that toddler's parent in jail. I agree that punishment for crimes serves as a deterrent to others, but not in this case.
I have issue with mandatory sentencing, and sentencing in general. In Chicago, a person with a history if violence, was arrested for murder. His previous sentence, for murder, was boot camp and probation. The judge had discretion, and chose a lenient sentence for this guy.

Also, Illinois is debating if 85% served time is justified for release. This makes no sense, shouldn't someone serve the full sentence?
After all, they committed the act 100%.

The toddler case, if it is shown it was negligence, they must be held accountable. The toddler did not the ability of knowing the firearm was dangerous, the adult did. Had another adult been killed and not a toddler, I would be less inclined to suggest punishment. The adult has
the ability to understand.

My issue with mandatory sentencing is it is not applied where it should be. Crimes that do not cause death, don't need mandatory sentencing. Crimes with criminal intent that cause death or injury, should have a mandatory sentence, and 100% served time.

In all honesty, you are the ONLY reasonable person on the pro-gun side here. I've begun respectfully with everyone here and only you haven't become frustrated and degenerated into personal attacks and name-calling.
I'm happy to discuss any ideas for reducing gun violence with anyone who wants to suggest ideas.
You did not begin respectfully with me when I came to this thread. You were trite, condescending, insulting, and untruthful. You still are. You have just been untruthful again, you will not accept or acknowledge ANY ideas about reducing violence in our society that do not include infringing on the rights of honest law abiding gun owners (who, by the way, aren't the ones responsible for the violence).

You can stop a teenager from killing himself if he gets a gun from his daddy's night table drawer by not having a gun in the night table drawer.

Fewer guns = fewer suicides.

A Destroyer Tender. We fixed them when they broke (which was ALL THE TIME).

And funny how you skipped right over the sub-hunting frigate (which, at the time, had the world's most powerful sonar on board).

And if you indeed did serve...why won't you say where it was???

Standing at the brow waiting for the sailors during fleet week is hardly what I would call "served in the real Navy". But I am sure there were some who were thankful for your "service".

Ok, I think you are the first one I've seen calling for the confiscation of all guns.

Thank you for your straight-forward honesty.

Offering happy endings to sailors in the bar just offbase is, apparently.

Why would anyone offer to respond to your questions knowing- as I knew- it isn't possible for them to respond without you leveling an insult.

Tender were populated by sailors who couldn't cut it elsewhere.

Wash outs.

Some of them were tied up to piers for YEARS yet the crew pretended they were on a ship.

PS: If Japan had 75 million guns, would the suicide rate go up or down? Putting aside it is apples and oranges.

I know... would require independent thought.

Here's a clue: suicides using firearms are extremely effective.

There were some tenders who rarely left port (such as the Frank Cable out of Charleston), but the Puget Sound was the most underway tender on the east coast. In three years, I made a Med-Persian Gulf-IO cruise on her in '89, and a Med-Red Sea cruise in '91 during Desert Storm.

Tenders were populated by sailors who were specialists in their field. Mine happened to be AC&R repair and valve repair. Kind of important when sailing the Med et al without a repair facility anywhere in sight.

And I couldn't help but notice that you STILL haven't answered the question.

Why are you continuing to dodge and deflect, you lying POS wannabe who never was???
