Interesting how frequently you alude to "the rich", regardless of topic.
Circa 1971, the neighborhood kids got into a zip gun kick. Car antenna, carved wooden handle, rubber band powered trigger. Nail firing pin. Quickly learned that the shell would blow out the breech, hold the piece away from your body
Circa 1977, I had moved to NYS, my buddy was living in a mobile home. I never appreciated how he would point his weapons at me. Scared me. He got a new 22 rifle, pointed it at his brother. Then he set it vertical on the floor and it put a round through the roof! Close one.
Circa 2010, my buddy's 19 yr old sister is hanging at home. Her ex-boyfriend stops by to taunt her with his new girl. She goes in the house and comes back out with an old broken BB gun. She herself calls 911. Cops come, walk in the house, seize the weapon. Family can't afford a lawyer, get a public defender. She went to jail.
Circa 2011, see my thread in NJ section; " Theif!"
