I agree. Words are the most powerful weapon known to man. Words last much longer then we do. Think of the Bible...

Yes, some people deserve to be put in jail fool. TI is a fool. What was he planning to do with those guns? Start up a gang and do a drive by??? I hate these rappers trying to make it seem like they are all thugs. You all believe everything you hear. If they served time for drug possesion, they claim to be big drug dealers??? If they got caught with a gun they will killers. Akon was caught driving a unregistered vehicle and claimed he had a chop shop organization???? They were broke as hell catching the bus before they became rappers, now they talk like money was a common thing.

Every damn movie has a dude getting out of jail or working and then he gets in the drug game and a week later he is in a 2 million dollar mansion??? Fake sh!t... most drug dealers barely make minimum wage if you count the hours and they might walk around with 5-8 hundred in 20s but that is all they got. Living at home with mom or with a chick who pays all the bills. Then they go out and stand on the corner with 15 other kids and when a car pulls up they all run to it trying to sell a 10 dollar bag of weed.

I have a bank account now with good credit????

Show me another convicted drug dealer that attempts to buy these kinds of weapons. What sentences do they have? TI got preferential treatment, he should be in prison for a long time.

I am not hating, I am stating a fact. TI is a convicted drug dealer from Bankhead Hwy. He was then caught with weapons that were illegal for him to have. Other convicted drug dealers in similar legal situations get harsher prison sentences. That is not hating, that is prefenting facts.

TI is a convicted felon becuase he was arrested more than once as a young adult by the Cobb County Police for selling cocaine and for obsturction of a police officer.
He is a convicted felon drug dealer. If he really needed protection he could have easily afforded a body guard,(which he had).
Buying dozens of machine guns and silecers is illegal even if a person is not a felon.
He knew better and now he had to pay the price just like any other thug.
