Guns for groceries? This has got to be the stupidest fucking thing ever. Some groceries is even worse. Why some? How fucking much is some? It should be based on the street price of the weapon. If I turned in that Javelin missle I stole from Bondsteel, I should get about a 100,000 dollars worth of groceries.

^ And that isn't street price, that's retail price straight from the contractor.

Why would they? It's a fair thing. I'd trade in my nuke for the entire supermarket and you need to fill out my request asap, it's been sitting on queue for the past 5 months and I'm gonna start spamming the racial section again.

Not that I know of but I was mad as hell about 2 days before the event. I got a message that the Sherrifs dept was going to run the guns. No the hell they wasn't.. That was just foul.

They did not even take under consideration the intervention specialists who were out there promising the hoods that this would be a no questions asked event. Can you imagine what might have happened if the Sherrif was allowed to do theat. It would be as if the hoods were set up by they own people.

But alls well that ends well. ALmost 1700 weapons off the streets. Most were broke but Hey!! What can we say..

That's bad though...

Here everyone has guns. In the Western parts where there's tons of Macedonians and Albanians at the same time it's worse and people have like 20 AK47's at home

Hence the sterotype

Image

Here the biggest outside threat we have is Gypsies...outside as in non-Macedonian, not the Bulgarians lol..

Thing is there is no need to carry them around and use them so people just go out and blow some steam. One day I was sitting here and all of a sudden I hear loud gunshots bang bang bang bang close by. Turns out it's some neighbour blowing off some steam firing into the air, nothing big...

We solve fights before they break out with words, and if all fails, then there is no such thing as a set fight let's me and you take this on right now.

The beef is either momentary or it builds up overtime through things as like getting at a guy's girl or talking shit about him...

If it builds up, they meet somewhere isolated with a group of people just in case they need to break up...

LOL

You can use fists...we have fighting as in for a warning, you'd bitch slap or pop someone in the face to warn them or scare them off...

Then we have the real emotional fighting, you just want to get at him, you do what your body tells you and that doesn't stop from using things as weapons.

For a warning I had one friend throw a beer bottle into a police officer's face because the police officer was going for another friend and was gonna beat him down.

Chairs, tables, glass bottles, knives etc. bone breaking lol

Most people personally when they're pissed can't think and aim for the face and don't think about hitting the throat for example...I do however.

The way I look at it if everyone has guns and muscle then everyone will not bother everyone.

If they do they won't use guns and even then it's flexible...

My worst enemy is now one of my bestest friends.

Got into a fight...months later he had a motorcycle accident.

Same with another friend, he got into a fight with one kid and beat him down pretty bad knocking his teeth out, cracking his jaw and leaving him bloody and bruised and as he was gonna throw the final punch the teacher pulls the kid out of the way so the friend hits the floor and breaks his hand.

Then about a week ago he storms in and falls on my bed, takes of his shoe...he's like they beat me down, a group of maybe 6 20 year olds...

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

they hit him in the back of the neck and head and the back of his knees and he fell paralyzed for a few seconds and they just kicked and punched him and ran, no blood or anything but his foot was swollen up because they kicked it to trip him
