Your bizarre story of the day

This one has it all: guns, drugs, sexual assault, ski masks, crossbow violence, car crashes, intoxication. . . .it all ads up to one hell of a story. It seems that possession of narcotics in the home attracts this sort of thing. Glad to hear everyone survived.

Now, when you think of the type of people that you would want to prevent from obtaining a firearm, these guys are at the top of the stack. How they made it into their twenties without choking to death on a hot dog is anyone's guess, but the fact remains that people like this are bound to screw up at some point, and you're not going to stop them with a background check at a gun show. It's not going to happen.

The place to stop them is, sadly, after the fact, which in this case is here and now. Good to know that one of them is going to get a permanent residence in a Virginia state prison, but the other two will walk free eventually. The drunken rapist will walk free right after he's fifty, and the other guy gets twenty eight years of his sentence suspended. What gives?
