Many people have been talking about gun control after last Friday’s tragedy in Newtown, Conn. They have many ideas, but I haven’t heard this one.

All people over the age of 12 who are convicted of committing a crime while in possession of a gun go to federal prison for life. No appeals, no parole, no exceptions.

I bet 95 percent of Americans, including the NRA will agree with this idea.

Now let’s see our do-nothing Congress pass this into law without watering it down.
