If these are bought legally-What is the issue? Perhaps Chief Tony Sheperd should be aggressing active crimes and not bothering tax paying, local businesses,

Pawning gift cards has crooked writen all over it. especially when you see them coming in your pawn shop that much. If the stores that gives these theives money for stealing off them, then that's their lack of security. Maybe if the judge or store owner's would do more than a simple "Your not allowed back in here no longer" , when they do catch the thief, than they wouldn't have such a big problem...i know,..where do they put all the shop-lifters? Jail's are to full. Shoot them.

There finally is one thing that ( http://www.welendcashonstuff.com/ ) pawn shops may not be able to sell. They had such a broadview, I'm actually a little surprised that they may end up getting more restrictions than they already have.
