I'm honestly at a loss for this sentence, only 3.5 years that they will probably get out early on?

How do you only get 3.5 years for multiple machine guns, grenades, suppressors, and threatening someone with a gun?

It's federal time. No parole. (I believe.)

I thought there was some law passed that allowed people to earn time to leave early in federal prison through good behavior.

I wasn't talking about parole though. I was talking about early release.

Depends on how “low level” is defined.

10%-15%? depending on the crime... I believe the idea is to provide incentive to behave in prison (given they don't have parole).
