Well you better not gossip then. Remember the bill Carolyn McCarthy put forth to take away firearms from people convicted of crimes in foreign lands with a punishment of over a year? I have found myself taking note of crime overseas and the punishment. Mainly to see if I could find outrageous examples of crimes that would lose you a basic right here.
I found a good one here people.
A Colombian city has introduced a new law under which people can be jailed for gossiping.four years. Remember what the press release about her bill said.
Under the law in Icononzo, malicious gossiping is punished with up to a £50,000 fine or four years in prison.
McCarthy's bill amends current law to state that a person "convicted in any court, including any foreign court, of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year" shall not be able to possess a firearm.Gossip in this town in Columbia and you end up getting shafted here, all thanks to Carolyn McCarthy.
