California, with the cooperation of 2nd Amendment advocates, passed a law long ago that makes sentence enhancements available to judges for the use of a firearm in a crime. These enhancements are often plea bargained away, but even so, the legislature is poised to remove them.
Not because they are enforced unfairly, nor because they don’t serve as a deterrent, but because Blacks are disproportionately affected because they so heavily rely on the use of firearms in criminal activity.
It’s a good idea, employed impartially, but the outcome doesn’t meet ‘equity’ goals, it will be discarded.
