On one hand I side with the law - you shouldn't be irresponsible when handling these toys.
On the other hand, I have a right to own toy guns if I want to.
I am thinking of getting a pardon so I can own toy guns again.
I love guns for their engineering and for sport target shooting.
I am a prompt tax payer and loyal citizen - I make a lot of money per year and give almost half of it to the government.
I deserve to own toy guns if I wish.
I took up paintballing and now own a tiberius 8 paintball pistol and Im concerned I may be found with it while going to a paintball meet.
What can I do? Speak to a lawyer?
Stupid of you for shooting off from your balcony. Lesson learned and move on.
Did the cop asked for your ID and record your info?
