    Everyone is for restorative justice until it’s someone or something they don’t like.

      12 years is pretty ridiculous. OTOH, you are unknowingly traveling with live ammo. I’m less bothered by the ammo part than the unknowing part, but in combination - yeah that needs to be more than a slap on the wrist.

      You have just demonstrated your inability to keep track of the important bits related to your deadly weapon. Maybe you don’t need to own a deadly weapon if that’s an indicator of how you treat it.

      So I’m all for “restorative justice” but I do think this should get more than a stern talking to.

      Everyone is for restorative justice until it’s someone or something they don’t like.

      Only the left is for restorative justice. The right is for maximum punishment, and no mercy. Especially if you don’t look like they do.

      OTOH the right seems pretty into personal responsibility - until it’s someone or something they do like.

        It used to be a fine, which was more than a “stern talking to” and seems pretty reasonable for a careless act that hurt noone.

        And if you are for restorative justice, and you think prison time for this is a good idea, then it doesn’t matter if other people are hypocrites as you absolutely are.
