These Stories Piss Me Off

Form the Roslindale Transcript police logs:

Temple Street, West Roxbury. A 79-year-old West Roxbury man turned in his .38-caliber Smith and Wesson handgun and 37 rounds of ammunition. He told police that he did not want to burden his family in case he passes away. The gun was used for his protection when he owned some barrooms years ago in the Boston area, the police report noted.

Sure, he could have sold the gun to a dealer, or another licensed individual in the state, but why "burden one's family" with cash?
