Mr. Anderson’s Pawn Shop.
MR. ANDERSON sits behind the counter cleaning coins.
MR. GILETTE enters, he has an item wrapped up in canvas under his sweater.
MR. ANDERSON: Welcome to Mr. Anderson’s pawn shop, what can I do for you?
MR. GILETTE discreetly puts the canvas wrapped item onto the counter.
MR. ANDERSON: What is it?
MR. GILETTE: Unwrap it.
MR. ANDERSON: Why don’t you do it?
MR. GILETTE: Don’t like touching it.
Although concerned, MR. ANDERSON is also curious.
MR. ANDERSON unwraps the canvas and reveals an AR-15 Machine Gun.
MR. ANDERSON: Whoa.
MR. GILETTE: …
MR. ANDERSON: What are you doing with this?
MR. GILETTE: It was given to me.
MR. ANDERSON: A gift?
MR. GILETTE: I was forced to take it.
MR. ANDERSON thinks this through.
He connects the dots.
MR. ANDERSON: You’re a teacher?
MR. GILETTE nods his head.
MR. ANDERSON starts to check the weapon’s condition.
MR. ANDERSON: How many students have you lost?
MR GILETTE: Lost count at this point.
MR. ANDERSON: You allowed to sell this?
MR. GILETTE: Don’t know. Don’t care.
MR. ANDERSON: Alright.
MR. GILETTE: How much do I get for it?
MR. ANDERSON: What are you going to buy with it?
MR. GILETTE: Pencils. Binders. Books. Things they took away so I can have that.
MR. ANDERSON considers this.
MR. ANDERSON takes out a huge wad of cash.
MR. ANDERSON: Here.
MR. GILETTE: Isn’t this a bit much?
MR. ANDERSON: Take it.
MR. GILETTE: Thank you.
MR. GILETTE makes his way to the door.
MR. ANDERSON: Hey. Good luck out there. Stay safe.
MR. GILETTE nods his head at MR. ANDERSON then exits.
MR. ANDERSON holds the AR-15, staring at it.
