Someone that does not want this info is eiher ignorant, or does not care b/c they couldn't buy one legally anyway. Kind of like prescription narcotics.
Yeah but you are smart Missy and know how to use the brain God gave you.
Many many people in many many places view buying a gun (as in the weight and knowledge of owning such a thing) as being no different from getting a puppy from the neighbor down the road's mixed something-or-nother dog or the hun'art an' fitty dolla purty horse they been eyeballing for a few days.
So many people have no respect of the power a gun weilds or are so desensitized from gun culture it means nothing to them.
And, like the pup and purty horse, it won't be long before it's dumped at the pound or traded for a purtier one.
