    hmmm, second time I have had to say it on here... Typical internet fourms, man post something even a little suspicious and you guys jump on him like stink on s***. Is this not supposed to be a COMMUNITY for like minded people to celebrate teir love for guns? Or is this just a little hating place.

    Looks like you have close to $10,000 worth of guns (AK74 not making list?). That money could be spent on a new place where guns won't be so "needed." A wise man matches his spending to his priorities.
    the only risan why we are thigh in money is because my pick up engine blow up a few weeks ago so we took the money that we where saving to move out ($3000) and get a mini van and NO i don't own $10,000 in guns
    the last few years i only spend $3500 for MY 3 AR-15 and my other guns and i traded for the AK-74 and for my FNP-9 so i did not have to spend money and my other guns i got used so i got a great deal so payed less

    I just love it when people start telling you how to spend your money
    when they don't know the circumstances you are facing ! It's easy to cast stones when you are not walking in someone shoes.

    The shootings, rapes, drugs, etc... are centered mostly in Paramore, and Pine Hills, FL, just outside downtown. Every big city has it's Paramore and Pine Hills...

    Most Paramore/Pine Hills residents do not own their homes, so that makes moving easier. That said, the rents there are a bit below everywhere else... And government subsidized housing is hard to come by in nice neighborhoods... Those who DO own in Paramore, usually are the 3rd, 4th, 5th generation owners of these homes, which are quite unsellable. So moving for them is tough. They do NOT have a mortgage, cannot afford a mortgage. Most do not work. And if they do, it is below poverty, or below the table.

    Most of the gun owners in Paramore did not buy their guns from the local range and/or FFL. Most of the pet owners in Paramore have their "pets" tied up in the front half of the house, so as not to destroy what's left of the back. These pets are most commonly named "Turbo", "Diesel", or "Mako"... or "Ganja".

    The vast majority of "Orlando" resides outside of Paramore and Pine Hills. I haven't heard a siren in my neighborhood in years. Kids ride bikes up and down the street to the local park to play baseball, soccer, and swim in the pool... There are walking trails thoughout the community, and people use them at night. Not one rape, murder, or other violent crime in as long as I can remember...

    If you're going to slam your neighborhood, and bitch about the crime, make sure you specify the NEIGHBORHOOD... Not the whole damn city...

    I like this city.

    40,000,000 tourists a year agree... although I avoid THOSE areas too! I just like the fact that those 40,000,000 visitors pay my taxes every year... I don't have to.

    you make a good point

    Quick story about my neighborhood in Margate FL. We had a few robberies by some kids who likely pawned whatever they took. They burglarized a few people across the street, around the corner, and down a side street. One day I came home to a police officer near my home. I was thinking to myself "did they get my house?" What happened was around the corner a guy was home when the kids attempted to burglarize the home. Little did they know that the guy was an avid shooter. Kid took a shot in the chest and didn't survive his injury. So we were being warned and questioned about any other kids around the area doing the same. By kid I don't mean real young, I'd say probably 16-19 years of age. I still call people younger than me kids and I'm only 26 *shrug*. Anyhow, after that...no more robberies around the neighborhood. Probably wised up to the fact that many of us are gun owners.

    I appears you have done some hating yourself, remember this thread (minus the inappropriate comment removed from your post that was directed at another member and made a reference to the "F" word followed by the word "YOU" and something about a horse being rode in on)...

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but even though we all have a common interest in guns, that's where a lot of the similarities end. A common like of guns does not equate to a free pass to say anything without people posting opposing viewpoints. People here have opinions, many of them different. If you post something out there in the open forum, you should expect to hear things you do not want to hear. Just because we all like guns, we are not, proudly, a group of "yes men" that will nod and smile if someone posts something we don't agree with. If that's what you're looking for, you're in the wrong place.

    Nicely put!

    Plus, if we were all the same, we wouldn’t have anyone else to make fun of or blame for our problems!

    No hating just standing up for what I belive and I respond in kind when people treat me negatively. I will be damned if I will set back and let anyone who didnt go through REALLY go through 9/11 tell me to be ashamed for anything I say in relation to 9/11 when he was probably sitting on his couch safe and secure.

    And as far as opposing viewpoints you can disagree without treating people like crap. I guess some stereotypes are right about guns and trashy hicks LMAO or something like that.
