“Home Secretary Teresa May [above] confirmed that gun-runners who supply lethal weapons to gangsters could be given life sentences,” according to the BBC. ‘We know there are middle men, who have firearms that they then rent out to criminals who then use them. There isn’t at the moment an offence for someone to possess a firearm with the intent to supply it to someone else. I think it is right that we introduce that offence, because those people who are supplying the firearms are as guilty as the people using them when it comes to the impact.'” Wait, what? It’s one thing to give a life sentence to someone who actually supplies a firearm to a known criminal knowing that it will be used for a criminal offense. It’s another to lock them up for life because they intended to do so. Department of Pre-Crime anyone?
