Crime Program for Tommy Barrett

Here's a suggested criminal-reduction program for Milk-Carton and the next DA of Milwaukee County:

"...if you really want to stop violent crime, you don't need to spend taxpayer's money to throw parties for mayors and hold seminars and schedule photo ops...and act like violent crime is some new problem with some secret solution," said NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre at the NRA's annual meeting in May.

"It's real simple. If you want to get crime off your streets, get criminals off your streets," LaPierre said. "Here's what you do," he said in remarks addressed to Mayor Bloomberg:

"Walk down to Town Hall and tell your prosecuting attorneys that from now on,

no plea bargains,

no reduced charges,

no dropped cases.

A drug dealer caught with a gun goes to jail.

A violent felon caught with a gun goes to jail.

Discharge a gun in commission of a felony, go to jail.

Smuggle a gun, go to jail.

If you do that, if you stop talking and start acting, your violent crime rate will drop 30 to 40 to 50 percent in one year."

--Wayne LaPierre, NRA

Thought the Boys of Downtown could use a reminder.
