Of course they'd need to tighten up on other crimes...

...but don't forget that as far as "seriousness" of the crime, we lose more people to DUI every year than to armed robbery. I'm all in favor of a three-strikes law that puts felons away for life. Better still, I'd be in favor of overturning Furman v Georgia and the companion cases, and allowing states to once again execute those convicted of a second or third violent felony, or felony with the potential for violence. Of course, the good ol' boy lawyer network of trial attorneys, judges, legislators, and governors will never let that happen either. They have to look out for their pals.
