I tend to agree with that. However, here are the up-front hurdles:
Problem No.1: A "weapon" can be something as insignificant as a pencil when used appropriately and purposely. The ambulance chasing attorneys would eat this alive. "Your honor, my client had absolutely no intent of committing this crime, even though he accidentally shoved this pencil through the plaintiffs neck. It was a knee-jerk reaction and a self-defense move the defendant used to protect himself from being arrested for a crime he hadn't yet committed."
Problem No 2: Judges that are going to enforce and uphold these laws don't exist. The main reason that existing laws do no good. The revolving courtroom door spins effortlessly as smiling criminals keep greasing the hinges. The courts are a joke, criminals know it, lawyers know it...and we know it. The repeat offender rate for violent crime is no less than astounding!!! They wouldn't be so able to repeat their actions if they weren't deliberately set loose to do so, now would they?
