    Jackieflash42-"I tend to agree with ginaosbo, this gentleman is obviously a victim of society and you can tell by the look on his face that he's reaching out to ask, "why is this happening to me, what did I do, I ain't done nothing, that stuff ain't mines". Nevertheless, I can only hope that he will take this incident and use it as a learning experience,finish college and get his Bachelor's Degree, get a high paying quality job and live a good clean life like his moms raised him to do."

    Worland, before you get yourself and the entire NRA in a gun-protecting tizzy, re-read the first paragraph. ;-)

    "A Goldsboro man...faces federal charges for possession of a destructive device AND a sawed off shotgun..." (emphasis mine)
