That scares me. I don't want to sound like an elitist asshole, but there are a lot of people out there that shouldn't be trusted with a rubberband gun. He knew I was a good guy, but there are a lot of private sells out there in which the seller knows nothing about the buyer.
What can we do about that? Probably nothing.
Not much if we want to live the free life, best to be prepared yourself just in case.
