Your hands are registered because you give the best handjob around. All the boys at the Y rave about your technique. And you clean up with your mouth is just delicious.

Being a world class martial arts instructor/trainer for the government there is no registering of anyone because of their training. Sorry pal you lose!

"Maniac buys a gun with no background check, maniac sells gun to street punk, street punk kills with initially LEGALLY purchased gun.
NO background check, no way of knowing if a maniac is buying a gun or if a normal, stable person is buying said Gun."
you can judge it nuts all you want, THIS HAPPENS!! It happens because there is no simple check to find out if a person is an unstable criminal or mental defective, PERIOD!!!!
AND, I never said a word about a Registry, NEITHER DID THE BILL VOTED DOWN, EVEN IF KELLY AYOTTE LIED TO YOU AND SAID IT DID, IT DIDN'T in fact, it specifically outlawed them!
SIMPLE BACKGROUND CHECK TO BUY A WEAPON, how hard is that to understand?

Look kid, I know its hard and I know your try hard to understand..but you just don't get it.You don't get my world, why would you. I'm not talking about you in the Silver Mittens or some arm chair tough guy who took a few karate classes. If you studied under the Corpa Brnh discipline and came out alive then yes you would be registered and you would stay registered....if not ,good luck not just dis-appearing some day...like permanent. They take this stuff very, and I mean VERY serious.

<quoted text> You make a good point..if these guys are not on the job a full fifth of the time they have no excuse for crying a manpower shortage. But , and I mean BUT...your missing another important point. TRAINING! TRAINING ,TRAINING! we're talking about small town cops here. Thats why you see them pulling nothing but traffic duty...IT'S WHAT THEY KNOW. You can't expect these guys to go head to head with gang leaders. As well intentioned as they may be they are just going to get hurt. Either train what you've got or bring in ,a let's say , specialists.
Obviously, no business in the Private Sector World would last very long if each and every employee averaged 56 paid days off per year; plus the usual paid holidays. They would quickly go belly up.

And, you really have to question the mental soundness of an organization that gives each and every employee an average of 56 paid days off per year, plus holidays; while at the same time whining that they are too understaffed to actually do their jobs. It's complete nonsense; alright. But, that is exactly what the FPD is doing.

No doubt about it, your right. Not to mention that they are not up to the task even when they are working. I'm not blaming them for that , they just dont have the street toughs to handle these gang leaders..in fact I applaud them for having the sense to stay out of the way. But then who's going to step up..and no,please don't ask me to put together a team, I'm to busy enjoying my retirement, well semi-retirment.

Right on man and any government that would pay someone like you for taking 365 days off a year is doomed.

You know your stuff. When I was 10 I was sent to mountain top in Burma where I studied Hong Kong Fooey for 15 years. Then when I turned 12 my master said I was ready so I returned to the states and had to register not only my hands but my entire body. My flatulance is also considered a toxic gas. Keep telling the truth brother. These people don't know how it is being a walking weapon. Stay safe.

Sorry kid, but there is no registration needed. I know this may be a shock to you, but that's okay. I eat Corp Brnh trained fighters for LUNCH! I train the Secret Service, Navy Seals, Army Rangers and many other agents that cannot be disclosed.

the police don't do anything just the other day I saw k9 unit dealing drugs with latin kings outside of my apartment building and then threaten me that if I took video that I go missing let me tell you something I have no respect for these cops and I any good cops are on this force better leave because they're just like them if they stay. They can transfer. If not then sorry, but like you pigs tell any hardworking white person, whos lived in this town their entire lives and simply want you to take a report or arrest a blunt and obvious criminal mocking you, "just move then". You can, you get paid regardless. Nobody has sympathy for pos cops who are reported doing illegal stuff and even helping some gang members locate and attack witnesses. No, nobody cares. The entire reason things got so bad was cause of the fpd not doing their job. Sense the new chief, crime has skyrocetted and strangely all criminals are pretty damn confident they wont get busted, so now they do stuff in broad daylight most would only wait till night to try. So sick of these fake cops. Maybe futchburg needs a militaey presence by DHS. I highly doubt the gang leaders would mess around then. Bunch of wiggers, wanna be thigs, and skinny tattooed ricans who cant fight a one on one. REALTALK

Same here, I don't have the time for a small gig like Fitchburg. I am a consultant for "Burn Notice" but obviously the producers of the show only get basic information that can be found online and is unclassified.

NOW, now....you must be new to F-burg. Here in F-burg, the police put their focus on low level traffic infractions. Other than that, they claim that they are too understaffed to do much of anything. Of course, you don't have to look very long or very hard to find one who is working (working?) a paid detail on another one of their endless paid days off....
