    “possession of a firearm by a felon and possessing a weapon of mass destruction.”
    This street scum is only 17 and is already a felon. What kind of firearm did he have if it was considered a weapon of mass destruction?

        I think…you have no idea how to write. Go back to school.

        I have never heard anybody refer to a sawed off shot gun as, “a weapon of mass destruction”.

        FaithC you need to do some research on gun laws in NC. A shotgun with a barrel less than 18″ is considered a weapon of mass destruction. Check your facts before making yourself look like you really are.

      My theory is they throw darts at a wall covered with letters from the alphabet and that is how they come up with them. :)
