The hustling scammers, the druggies and drunks, the mentially ill, or the real homeless that are down on their luck and actually trying?

Because the first two I ignore completely. The mentially Ill I feel really bad for, and the onesthatare really down on their luck are not on the street corners hustling for money. Those people are helped by my donations to homeless shelters and to women and children shelters.

The fake hustler that is claiming they are a veteran standing there with a sign? Or the one guy I see push his wheel chair up to the corner then get in it with his hand out? they can stuff it.

It is a royal pain in the ass to get a IMEI blacklisted. I had to fight AT&T even though I sent them the police report and the phone was in their records as my property.
"But it's currently activated" Yes, by the thief, blacklist it.
"but that is one of our gophone customers", Yes the thief blacklist it.
"but but....." Do I need to get a lawyer involved?
"One moment please...."

99% will not force them to blacklist the phone but just let it go. To hell with who they sold the phone to, I was not going to stop until the phone was forever disabled from being a phone.

Most parents today are horrible. They do NOT interact with the chile like laying on the floor and playing with them. Get your asses off the couch and lie on the floor playing with your kids showing them how to stack blocks, and play.

I gave my daughter a earfull having my granddaughter use the ipad at 2 to keep her entertained. No you play with her using physical objects, and interaction.

Cross bows and long bows are far more effective than a rifle. in fact an arrow will rip through body armor as it has a crapload more energy in it. Buddy of mine does demonstrations of medieval weapons and has a English Longbow that drops steel tipped arrows that were commonly used in the 1300's through modern US military body armor without effort. Most sink in 8 inches beyond the armor.

He then points out to the military guys, "it's not the arrow that will kill you, it's the pig shit it was dipped in before you were shot that will kill you"

I suggest you look for a guy on youtube called FPS russia. he LEGALLY OWNS all the weapons in all of his videos.
I know people that legally own high rate of fire GE machine guns. 100% legally own, yes you can!

I own two AR15 rifles, one set up for very long distance match shooting, I can get a 3" grouping at 2000 yards with my rifle. I also have several pistols that I am more proficient with than 90% of armed forces and law enforcement. I competition shoot and really enjoy it.

My father was a shotgun master, he could hip shoot up to 6 clay targets at once, he also would get bored and shoot the shells he ejected from the gun between clay targets to show off.

People who are for criminal use of guns are the only people that want to make it hard for legal honest citizens to own them.

Quark! Quark! Beware the quantum duck!
