Impose prison for gun crimes
Re "A year and 10,000 gun deaths later, Congress fails to act" (Editorials, Dec. 14): Gun control laws have not, and most likely will not, keep guns out of the hands of criminals or the mentally disturbed. I'm all for background checks, but we need to do more to curb gun violence. One way to start would be to impose a minimum 10-year federal prison sentence for any gun-related crime conviction.
