One reply on “Edinboro shopkeeper to be tried for gun, ammo”

  1. [If guilty,] let him face the full penalty of the law. […] gunslingers […] cause mayhem to the average citizen. In Surrey v Sussex the law must not only be done it must be seen to be done. That’s where the get their power for the barrel of the gun.
