I will say one more time that Nevada, with their enhancement of penalties if you use a gun in a crime, have, and use the right technique.
I disagree. Murder is murder. Robbery is robbery. Rape is rape. It makes not one iota of difference if the weapon used is a gun, knife of club. In fact, murder committed with a knife or club may call for a harsher penalty than murder committed with a gun since the victim suffers more. I don't know about you, but if I'm to be murdered, I'd much prefer a clean, quick shot to the head than to be bludgeoned or hacked to death.
I do not support gun control, nor sentencing enhancements for crimes committed with guns.
