    list - indecent exposure, even if there's no one in sight.

    The sex offender list tries to be black and white (either you're not on it and a fine, upstanding citizen, or you are on it and should be locked away) but there's a huge gray area with it. Take this scenario for example: If you hook up with a girl you met at a bar or club - some place you have to be 21 to get in to, and it turns out she's 17 and got in with a fake ID and then reports you to the police, congratulations, you're a registered sex offender even though you did everything right.

    I personally would like to see all gun sales banned, period, but as long as we have the laws we have, I do not see why someone in that situation should necessarily be denied purchasing a firearm when others can.

    Moral of the story if you don't want to become an RSO for something minor: Piss your pants if there's no bathrooms nearby and only pick up cougars.
