    I lived there for 5 years (dad was a 111 pilot). Not a place I'd move back to.

    Exactly what I would expect from the Brits.

    I've heard a lot of dumb things in my life...this tops them all. Even my ultra-liberal friends back Massachusetts would be outraged by this. How have the British sunk so low? I think they just get bored when they don't have the Irish to beat up on.

    There are just no more words for this one.

    Sounds like something the Brady Bunch would think up.

    I think the term dolts comes in to mind. Try this mess in TX and it will be stopped after the first house.

Of course, who do you think used these amnesty boxes, the GG's. However there were BG's caught trying to break into these boxes to retrieve the items turned in.


    Anyways, I'm glad I'm off of Gilligan's Island now and back in the great ole USA.
    I have seen dealers putting notices in newspapers saying "don't put any knives into amnesty boxes, sell them to us"

    We all feel for you Tint Bob! I hope you find a nice family here in the free United States.

    My wife and I would like to adopt you guys, but we aren't rich, and we live in Mississippi (and not TX nor NH). However, as you are probably aware, about 90% of the USA is considered free, with the large exception being Kalifornia, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

    Cheers,

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Tint Bob, I saw the same listings as well for dealers wanting your knives before you put them in the amnesty boxes. I had forgotten about that. You'd be glad if you moved over here regardless of any state you'd pick. Any state over here is a thousand times better then dealing with the idiocracy that can happen over there. I'm glad my 4 years are done and over with there and I wont be heading back unless my son gets station in Suffolk. Even then, mom and I arent sure we'll go and visit. LOL

    I'm just glad I'm still not stationed in England with this stuff the Bobbies are going to be doing. They would more then likely be on the recieving end of one of my 28oz softball bats if they tried to get into my place.

    This story is just "taking the Mickey out of me".

    They wouldn't want to try that in Texas.
