This is great, but when is their court date?I hope we will not hear continuous adjournment.
The laws need to be restructured to either make bail unreasonably high (as a deterrent) or none at all for illegal gun possession. They just make bail and go on committing crimes. How is that not apparent to the legislative branch of the government?!??!
Don’t be fooled: the fact that this country has produced two Nobel Laureates doesn’t translate into comprehensive intelligence for the whole population! How come the leaders can’t figure out that if the gunslingers are guaranteed bail and freedom despite the stash of illegal guns and ammunition found with them, the criminals will not be deterred from maintaining their destructive behaviors?! That’s not rocket science, you Einsteins!
