    I wasn't aware that the police could take your license if your property is stolen.
    There are no pacts between lions and men.

    Is it your first day here? That's common practice in the city of the worst class. First you're victimized by the criminal, then you're victimized by the police.

    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    I think this is common practice with Philly unfortunately.

    What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms!

    The problem is that they can do anything they want and we have to pay and fight to get it corrected and they suffer no penalties for their transgressions.
    I know where Hunter's been.

    Yeah, apparently its standard protocol if your firearm is lost or stolen, at least that's what I'm told. They say it is to prevent straw purchasing, which doesn't really make any sense to me. Wouldn't they want to restrict my ability to purchase in that case? Carry has nothing to do with it.

    Has anyone else had this happen to them? Did you eventually get your license back? Did it stop you from purchasing?

    I guess I can consider myself lucky then.

    It is a common story that we have heard here for many many years now.

    I suppose the best option would be to not report it stolen. I dunno.

    The next best option is to unass Philly ASAP.
