    I dont think tshirts should be available for sale that have FBI, CIA, PD's, the word SECURITY or STAFF on them. If you work for an organization that distributes them for the job, you should be responsible to turn in any and all if you leave/ change jobs.

    As for the guntoting homeowner: my hero : ) good for you.
