Wherein Pino Proposes Make Sense Gun Legislation

Guns

In Minnesota DUI offenders can be mandated to carry what are referred to as “Whiskey Plates” on their cars.  These license plates begin with letters reserved in Minnesota for just such a reason; W, X and Z.  The idea is that any on duty officer, for any reason that should move him under the canopy of heaven, can pull over the driver of the car and subject him to a breathalyzer.

Perhaps we need to profile gun criminals.  For example, a quick look at anecdotal evidence from a single bust in North Carolina:

The police department worked in concert with  the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to identify the men, all known felons. The men and their charges are as follows:

Lorenza Dickens, 28, of Rocky Mount;
possession of a stolen firearm, aid and abetting

Tron Davis, 31, of Rocky Mount;
possession of a firearm by a felon; possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance; possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime

James Taylor Jr., 30, of Rocky Mount;
possession of a firearm by a felon; dealing firearms without a license

Morgan Terrell, 25, of Rocky Mount;
receive/possess a sawed-off shotgun; possession of stolen firearm

Henry Purvis, 59, Rocky Mount;
possession of a firearm by felon

Johnny Darden, 51 of Pinetops;
possession of a firearm by a felon

Benjamin Mcpherson, 30, Rocky Mount;

William Cherry, 24, of Rocky Mount;

Ozay Richardson, 41, of Rocky Mount

James Woodley, 28, of Rocky Mount
possession of a firearm by a felon

  • 100% men
  • 100% known felons
  • 76% between the ages of 15 and 40

I’m just saying that maybe before we get all worked up about checking the backgrounds of people willing to submit to background checks, we should admit who commits crimes with guns and work to remove the guns from them.
