    Too bad MD won’t let people carry. I expect there would be a lot less of these stories for us to read.

    He will have a place to live for Christmas this year. Too bad the dog didn’t do a number on him, maybe a little pain would teach this thief to find a new way to make money. If he was that hard up he could have just sold the gun instead of making some innocent person not know if they were going to live or die. Trash like him deserves every bad thing that happens to them.

    So glad MD has some of the toughest gun laws and makes it harder for criminals to get guns (enter sarcasm here).

    I’m pretty sure we can help him with that “no fixed address” part …
