Funny thing is this. As soon as I read the title of this thread, I knew where it would go. "Bring on the money" implies a sense of elation. It probably wasn't the best choice of words Joe because there is nothing about this set of circumstances to be happy about.
I guess it all depends on where one sits , are you losing anything ??, sat on useless firearms??? for many years already to fully understand the position of those that have and that compensation would be better than nothing this time
Once you read the first post that would clarify that and what is wrong with hoping compensation is indeed offered this time vs sitting on useless firearms ( that I cannot even sell this time if I wanted to even took that ) as I have for many years when this happened in the past.
It is a situation not you, me or anyone is going to change at this stage so might as well accept it for what it is , get the best I can and move on to the next battle
