A man in Chicago received a 63 month sentence for buying 17 stolen firearms and selling at least 11 of them for profit. What I want to know is why the sentence was so light? The article indicated he had “been convicted numerous times for illegally selling firearms and flagged as a prohibited possessor.” What does it take to lock of a habitual felon for long enough to break their criminal spirit. While five years is not a short period of time, it seems like a light sentence for a criminal who possibly contributed to crimes committed by others. I’m good with locking them up and throwing away the key!
