It's illegal to sell chewing gum at most airports too. The missing

oooo! ooo! I am having an a thought about
shooting an AR15!
Thought Crime!
Seriously,
I knew someone who went to the cops to report that he was threatened by some
one with a shotgun. They said they coudnt do anything. The next day the person
who threatened him, ***ed him. NOW those cops can do something....do
paperwork.
INstead they would rather haul up some guy doing leatherwork. does that mean
the brief cases will need to be registered, since
they may hold other than papers?
