Its dead wrong to promote hand guns with the sole intent of making a quick buck. After the retailer gets the clearance and the cash they don't care what you do with your weapon. The NRA and their ilk are responsible for numerous deaths around the globe.
Uh huh. And spoons made you fat, books made you stupd, TV made you a coward and mirrors make you ugly.
