Description

Colorado Project Exile, a program implemented by Tom Strickland, convicted felons caught with firearms faced harsh federal prosecution. Possession of a gun by anyone convicted of any crime, regardless of severity, could serve a federal prison sentence and face up to twenty years under this program. Holthouse examines what happens when Project Exile targets people with non-violent criminal records who did not use a firearm in a previous offense. And what of those persons who have no criminal record who were still targeted by Project Exile? Strickland wanted to change the culture of gun violence in America. And Holthouse's article checks to see if the program does, in fact, do that.
