<quoted text>Good luck finding someone twice my size, maybe an NFL lineman? Homer has gotten by just fine for going on 50 years without ever getting the tar beat out of him.
Okay, pretend you're a man of smaller stature and a strong muscular guy wanted to beat the tar out of you because you were an easy target to be robbed or something. You wouldn't be wishing you had a gun for protection then?

It's not the weapon, it's the person using the weapon. Hands and muscles can be just as lethal. Why don't you get that, Homer?

So right now there is no additional insurance needed or adjustments to insurance premiums if you own a gun?
Homer doesn't a own a gun, I find a bat to be more personal should anyone break in to my house.
Plus my you know is of uh adequate size, so no need to compensate and I'm not a hunter.
Generally, Homer would be better off to kill an intruder rather than seriously injure him. So, a gun is much more effective.

If Homer clubs the guy enough to make him a quadraplegic, Homer will lose a huge lawsuit. Kill the intruder and Homer walks.

<quoted text>You tube, c'mon__once again, in Florida, who administers SNAP?
BTW, SNAP is in the Florida newspapers today due to some pending Florida legislation and the arrest of a Daytona convenience store owner who was in violation.
Maybe you should research SNAP before you you spew more bullsht.
The guy was being interviewed on television and you tube provided the video.

Sheesh. Did you even see it?

Some store clerk apparently didn't honor the EBT card being used to purchase food or something. Has nothing to do with what we're discussing and there's nothing to research that would strengthen your or my argument about the fraud and abuse.

After a long and fabulous day of exclusive property/real estate hunting I am back at my expensive flat getting ready for a dinner of spotted dick, bangers, Pie and Mash with parsley liquor, and some Yorkshire Pudding for desert. I will then be retiring for the evening.
I had another successful venture today, bought another castle. Here it is:

My plan is starting to take formation. I was also fitted for my crown. Try not to be too jelous libtards. Tomorrow after a sumptuous breakfast of "Toad-in-the-Hole" I will be off again hunting for more properties and buildings to build my English empire with. Have a nice evening all.
Yorkshire Pudding was yesterday with beef wellington at a fine pub. The food is really good here nowadays nuculur. You should see if someone will pay for you to visit. You class can fly round trip for about $1000 usd.

<quoted text>What the fk are you talking about?
The criminal background data bases exist and are currently being shared by the majority if not all of the states, matter of fact there are at least three comprehensive national data bases that are not based on scientific opinion__felon means felon.
Speaking of data bases, Pennsylvania is reviewing and may rescind it's reciprocal agreement with Florida regarding conceal carry permits. Amazing eh?
Attempting to purchase a weapon illegally is a crime, so failing a background check is prima facie evidence of a crime. Yet this crime is rarely prosecuted. Why not?

What is the purpose of background checks for weapons purchases, if not to eliminate the most dangerous potential buyers?
That would include convicted felons and those with mental illness.
There are records to identify the felons, but not the mentally ill.
Maybe a personality test!
