No, it won't, but meth labs explode fairly easily. Also, firefighters are dispatched to a lot of things that don't necessarily include fires, such as auto accidents. Firefighters don't have any control over where they'll be dispatched.

Glock made a decision to offer the discount to all sorts of folks, including police, firefighters, EMTs, court staff.

The gun store I worked at in college (AR) had a guy that would come in, buy a gun, fill out paper work, and then say,"I'll be back in 5 days." He had a very common name lol. When I lived in Iowa you had to get a gun permit, not like a ccw, that took 5 days but that took care of the hassle of waiting for each individual gun.

1hogfan83, why 5 days? Does AR have a waiting period that I don't know about?

Edit: never mind. It's early and I didn't catch the snag with the "common name."
