Furiously, Fred the Fedex delivery man raced to Freeman’s Fire Range to pick up his final package of the day. He’d waited a long time for it; finally, after weeks of finalizing federal paperwork, his freedom to fire his gun would be found.
Frieda sat anxiously, frightened by the news she watched on television. Fred, aka Firearm Freddie, was on the loose. No one in Fairbanks was safe. A fugitive was set free by accident – a fiend to society, hell bent on making freedom wreckers pay for locking him up in the first place.
Fickle as usual, Fiona, Freddie’s mom, flagged the police. “Face planted him, officer! One fell swoop from this here mother’s forearm, and he was on the floor!” she said.
From that day forward, Fedex lost one of its best delivery boys and Freddie lost his freedom forever.
