Editorial: Arizona bill to lessen gun penalties "idiotic"

If it is correct that “if you do something that causes no harm to anybody, why should there be any penalty at all” then going 90 mph through a school zone should be legal as long as you don’t bump off any children; and driving the wrong way on the freeway should not be an offense if you avoid plowing head on into an oncoming vehicle; and getting drunk then getting behind the wheel shouldn’t be illegal as long as you don’t kill or maim an innocent victim.

The logic of such a notion is … no logic at all.

Just like the changes proposed in SB 1292.
