Should crime policy like gun control and prison terms be something nationally controlled, or locally controlled?

I think it should be controlled locally.

It should be controlled at the federal level. If its a local thing you'll just get more criminals going to states with lenient penalties, etc..

Locally, but that doesn't prevent it from still being illegal. We have at least 2 laws here that we voted in almost a decade ago that the supreme courts won't allow.

Locally! The need and use for guns are different in different parts of of the country. Some part of the country, such as LA or New York, strong controll laws are needed because of the high gun crime rate, where as in places like Minnesota and Alaska, guns are needed for things like protection against wild animals.

Locally, the feds are lucky if they can find their asses with both hands

Nationally... no private citizan should own a gun

Guerilla has a point, not to mention that it seems ridiculous that our justice system would have absolutely no consistancy. Certain states will put you in jail for 10 years for an offense that get's you a 500 dollar fine somewhere else, I doubt the needs of the two states would ever warrant such a disparagement.

And Evee, why do you think that?

Locally. I used to live in the Ozarks where wild dogs are everywhere. I used a gun on more than one occasion. But there is no need for guns in towns and citys. Especially when some people are trigger-happy.
