A Fish can be a weapon when used improperly, but to attempt to pass of a car (hammer, swimming pool, tall building, lawn darts) as a false equivalent to a gun is borderline retarded Having said that..I agree...the penalty for DUI should be mandatory jail time

party:

No, however due to the danger a unlicensed driver presents to the public, let alone an irresponsible driver, they are deemed a weapon when used improperly.

As such the punishment ought to be the same. Be irresponsible, lose the privilege to legally drive the vehicle. Become caught illegally driving, face work release prison for the illegal use of the car, and prison if you stole it.

There ought not be any difference between either, both require responsible use and with responsible use, will never harm a living being which isn't a threat to you.

They cease to be law abiding when they threaten anyone, lawmakers or otherwise.

The title of this thread is comparable to "law abiding car owners drive drunk". Well, they WERE law abiding, until they misbehaved.

I don't think anyone's defending this guy, but go ahead and flog your... arrgh what's the correct fallacy here? It's still too early....

btw - adding S's to "owner" and "lawmaker" in an attempt to make it seem like it's one group threatening another group is creative, but dishonest. This is one jackass threatening someone.

Vacp:

While your analogy is true that there are a great many killed or wounded by drunk drivers... We as a civilization must go from point a to b. This is why we do not immediately take the licence to operate a car from a person convicted of a DUI.

Personally I believe any conviction of a DUI, ought to carry the total loss of the vehicle and indefinite loss of licence. Given that our society is based upon individual transport and not a public transport system, this level of punishment simply isn't feasible to maintain without damaging both society and the national economy.

Through sheer force of numbers and economics, the DUI driver has won this legal battle. Fewer people however own a weapon.

Robert...I agree on thye decriminalization of drugs, but you miss the point...I am talking about people who claim to be "law abiding" and use that claim to justify their right to own any number of any type of firearm they choose, yet are either demonstrative adjudicated criminals, or claim they will ignore the law.

The entire Gun Lobby argument gets flushed down the crapper

I wasn't talking about the dumb idiot who made the threat against the elected official, i was talking about the waste of political capital that is gun control.

As for pot and other illegal drugs... If you consider that pot is the gateway drug of choice for many who seek a never ending escape from their pains of life. More than guns, however unless one is mentally disturbed, the gun will not warp ones mind and create a situation where by harm comes to the individual or others.

Lastly as we cannot afford to keep locking people up for simple drug offenses like pot and the fact that by legalizing it, you reduce a easy market for drug dealers and other criminals... I would support legalizing and then taxing it like we do other vices.
