    GOD bless this country for the freedom we have to buy any kind of weapons it's great to be armed to the teeth, I heard in the news truckers traffic guns from south to north east and Canada it's more lucrative then drugs and easy to do 1000 per item plus the cost of gun retail, it's good money, gun can disassemble and reassembled at delivery. But my question is how and who registers theses guns down south?

  10. Boats have live presrvers

    And military fighter crafts have parachutes. But civilian airliners? Not one single parachute. Who wouldn't jump for the first time knowing that if they didn't, they would die in the crash. At least have a few parachutes so that at least maybe one person could survive and give us an eyewitness accounting. We all are very familiar with the way flight recirders and black boxes have a way of disappearing 'for reasons of national security'. Imagine if even one person were able to jump form the 9/11 flights...the story they would tell from seeing it with their own eyes.
