Is the Bank trying to rip me off?


What scares me about guns is that they have a way of getting into the hands of people that are too young, too mad or too desperate to be thinking straight. And, when a person isn't thinking straight, the last thing they need is a gun in their hands. It almost always makes the situation worse for everyone involved.

I agree with you. There are some, that should NEVER own a gun. However, if some scum-bag breaks into my house, I want to at least make the score even. Without it, I don't have a chance. I should have said: A responsible person should be able to own a gun.

Responsible gun owners are not the problem.

Responsible gun owners don't do drive-by's, or leave loaded guns around the house for their kids to find, play with and fight over. They don't have shoot outs in public places where innocent bystanders get killed by stray bullets. They don't use their guns to knock over a bank.

I think everyone agrees that guns wouldn't be a problem if they were only in the hands of responsible people.

The problem is that as long as guns are available to responsible people, they will continue to get into the hands of criminals, "gangsta's", bikers and people that are too young, mad or desperate to be thinking straight.

It's when you mix people like this with handguns that sh*t happens.

I think everyone understands all this.

The problem is allowing responsible people to keep their guns while still denying them to all them other guys.

The gun company that finds a way to make their gun work ONLY in the hands of it's registered owner and for no one else will have solved that mystery and the world will beat a path to it's door.

I've never been a big fan of the American Rifle Association. I have nothing against hunting rifles. But, these guys don't stop at hunting rifles or even hand guns. They want assault rifles and machine guns available to the general public. Man, what would a responsible gun owner do with a machine gun? At the most, it would be an expensive toy. At the worst, it could be the most dangerous thing he could have in his house.

I'll never forget what a former co-worker told me when we were buying our first home.

He said, "always remember that you are the buyer and you are in control of the deal and you have the power to back out of the deal". We had the mortgage company try to add a sneaky $495 processing fee at the closing.

I was totally disgusted by this move and told my agent and the mortgage co at the closing that the deal was off unless they waived this sneaky fee.

They had a quick meeting and the fee was waived. Don't allow them to railroad you with these sneaky fees.
