This is "junk" (junk is my word for not getting to the heart of the problem IMO)
We should make committing a crime immediately punishable. Any crime.
We don't need to make the punishment more severe, in most cases, just more certain and immediate. These are the attributes that deter crime. Just look at child rearing. Don't wait for "your daddy to get home". Do it now
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
Given the idea of justice, which includes the opportunity for a vigorous defense, and restrictions on the authority of police powers so as to avoid the sort of tyranny that some 2nd Amendment advocates say is the key to gun ownership, and the right to pursue appeals on all sorts of grounds from evidentiary to constitutional: given all that, and more, how in the name of America can one have an immediate punishment for crime?

Well the last 2 mass murders was with a machine gun - then theres that guy who carried one at a political protest because the court ruled they were legal.
If its either semi or full auto I still consider it a machine gun. The only difference is how you press the trigger.
The CO theater shooting involved a scary looking semi automatic carbine. The CT school shooting, according to the autopsy, involved multiple pistols - the scary looking semi automatic carbine was left outside in the car.
