Reply Not enough firearms in that scenario. Check TheTruthAboutScrapYards for those videos. Reply #scienceaf Reply And here I clicked on this to see which politician is now dead.. Reply LOL. That’s windbags 😉 Also, #TooSoon (I’m still warming up to Abraham Lincoln assassination jokes) Reply Name two people shot in the back of the head in a theater… Abraham Lincoln and the guy in front of Peewee Herman. Reply “Abraham Lincoln and the guy in front of Peewee Herman.” Oh, man! That was a local story here when it went down in Sarasota. It was the Genesis of the best joke I ever came up with: Q – What did Pee Wee say when they were snapping on the cuffs? (In a Pee Wee Herman voice, of course) A – “Excuse Me! I’m trying to c#m!” Surprised the airbag wasn’t removed from that junker, before you destroyed it, it probably had about a $1,000 value on the used market. That was roughly as interesting as those vids of folks shooting brand-new model iPhones on the day they are released… Reply Against federal law to sell used airbags. Sorry. Reply Is it “used” if it isn’t actually used? Reply Call it “previously owned”. Illegal or no, the market does exist for un-fired modules… Used is fine everywhere except, I believe, in New York. It’s refurbished ones that were federally banned. Used in nice condition for popular, current-ish cars usually sell for like $200. Funny, there are thousands of them listed on car-part.com, and legitimate businesses have been “recycling” them since at least 1990. Care to cite the law that makes them illegal to resell? Reply So if the airbag doesn’t kill you, the toxic smoke will? Was that a Takata airbag? Reply Takata airbags killed via shrapnel, a shotgun-blast to the face and neck. The propellant gas was inert nitrogen. If Jeremy can record the VIN, there are databases online to see if it is a Takata… Reply Bevis and Butthead come to TTAG.
