    "...It says here that you attempted to steal a man's lawn mower, is that correct?"- "Uh, yes sir, that is correct" - "...you attempted to steal it, but i'm guessing you weren't successful, is that correct?" - "Uh, yes sir Mr Judge sir" - "Well, have you learned anything from this son?"- "uh, yes sir Mr. Judge sir...next time I'll bring help"

    Verdict:
    Thief- released on conditions of apologizing to the owner of the mower
    Victim- Charged $1,500 because the Thief hurt his back trying to push the "heavy" mower and now thief had to get surgery.

    Well, to answer your question. No, I didn't register the gun, because at the time I had an FFL, and bought the gun to resell. It wouldn't have made any difference if I had bought it for pesonal use, you don't have to register guns in Missouri.

    Punt66, I sure hope this explanation satisfies you, because it seems you enjoy jumping to conclusions with little information. To put this in perspective, let's say you bought a used trimmer from a guy you know that lives in the same town as you. He says he is short on cash, the price is pretty good, and it would make a good backup for you. After you buy it, you find out he stole it from his neighbor. I suppose it would be your fault for not knowing it was stolen?

    I'm sorry, but i may sound a little off. I have already made plans for if this happens. If someone steals ANY of my stuff while i am trying to support my family, while i'm hot,tired, and sweaty, i don't need a gun or a dog or run after them. I am going to get in my air conditioned f350, and I will slam that MF-er, and my stolen equipment into the next county. They can get there lazy a$$ out there and work for it just like i did. That same mind set goes for if some idiot runs into my truck not paying attention on there phone. If one of those idiots run into me i am going to push them till i can't push them any more.Sorry for the rant ,but i can't stand jacka$$es.
