What do you use for a truck gun?

What are you doing with your truck gun in a Walgreens in San Francisco? I don’t get it.

Where did plainjane say in his post that he had a truck gun in san fran??

He didn't and you know that!

But keep trying to twist his words to support your own narrative, it's sad and amusing at the same time.

You caught me! Maybe you can explain what he’s talking about? What’s San Francisco and Walgreens have to do with truck guns?

Well when you steal from a Walgreens in San Francisco you get a slap on the wrist- in the UAE you get your wrist cut off- see the difference?
Cutting off wrists doesn't happen, that was a century ago. The biggest deterrent in the UAE is that 85% of the population is on a work-visa and you will be deported after whatever punishment the judge decides. For most people, that job feeds 3+ families at home.
On an experiential level, though, people here are genuinely helpful and kind regardless of their background. The famous Arab hospitality has rubbed off on people.

Most Americans are not very well informed and largely get their facts from click-bait articles and old Looney Tunes cartoons.

The overall point stands- they actually punish criminals in the UAE, that no longer occurs here- I guess unless you overvalue your property….

Not entirely, we also rely on internet forums, like this one as well as news shows that claim to be for entertainment only.

Lying about your property value isn't illegal, generally, it depends on what you lie about and why. It becomes illegal when your lie supports a fraud to obtain bank loans, inflated insurance contracts and to cheat on your taxes, but then, every adult knows that. If someone did that in the UAE they might hang'em.

Again, trucks are not in season in the US, it's against the law to shoot one so having a "truck gun" is as useless.
