When it comes to using a gun some states have already enacted laws that if you use a gun in a crime you get a mandatory sentences. Look at Florida's.

  • Mandates a minimum 10 year prison term for certain felonies, or attempted felonies in which the offender possesses a firearm or destructive device
  • Mandates a minimum 20 year prison term when the firearm is discharged
  • Mandates a minimum 25 years to LIFE if someone is injured or killed
  • Mandates a minimum 3 year prison term for possession of a firearm by a felon
How exactly do you know that? The majority of studies show that it wouldn't have any affect, because criminals don't obey the law.

Look at Florida's crime rates. Looks to be a consistent growth along with population, despite their harsh gun laws....
