Discasting now that we are trying to keep young people far from arms.
becca.woods answered:
I'm unsure what discasting means, but I assume you mean disgusting. It is not disgusting as my nephew is serving this country as a grown man and has every right to bear arms as per the constitution of the United States of America. I am very proud of him for what he does. Your comment was completely uncalled for and highly unappreciated. Hope you have a nice day trying to make others feel bad for something they worked very hard to accomplish.

Debra Labit asked:
My husband and I love it!! Would be a great groom's cake. Being a law abiding gun owner I appreciate the realistic quality of it. And as for Discating, we should keep young adults away from cake, more for us crazy gun toting adults!
