Are you sure you are not an aspie? Talk about blowing a gasket......
That's got nothing to do with being an aspie...
I'm trying to read up on some news here, form my own opinions and ask my own questions only to have people argue with me about things that aren't going to change or solve anything... I don't like playing this game. Big time waster.
I'm not going to answer any more replies to my mere opinions until somebody quotes my post for something that will benefit ME as well... and that is telling me how long this has been going on.
Yes, I have opinions. Sorry if you don't like.
Today, I do not have time to try to convince you.
Does anybody know when they started doing this?

Notice something strange about that marlin?
The freaking scope is on backward!
The people turning them in are so incompetent that they don’t even know which end of the scope points forward!
That is so telling of the people turning them in that it isn’t even funny.
Their parents are definitely spinning in their graves
And someone turned in a classic lever action with high end wood stock. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
*LOL* That is to funny. Wonder if they are turning it in because they could not hit anything with it *LOL*
That is a nice stock on that. looks like, 30-30 could be .22 but nice looking gun...
I must be old fashion, i've gave up a lot of things in my life,
started over a few times, but there are two things i never
part with no mater what, i'd sleep on the streets first,
which are my guns and my guitar's.edit on 23-12-2012 by severdsoul because: (no reason given)

When you have no knowledge about guns you shouldnt be trying to control guns.

So? Your article is from an extreme right wing propaganda site. No one is forcing anyone to turn in their guns.
I really don't see anything wrong with this.
