• I've never needed an ID to buy a leg of lamb, so I guess the answer is "no".

      How much would a decent leg of lamb cost? does every butcher have lamb?

      so my friend wasn't lying when he said it would be easier to buy a gun around here than have lamb for dinner tonight? I don't think hes into shooting guns either way.
  • Legs of lamb are not commonly sold to the public in the U.S. That is: you won't find it in local grocery stores, even the large chains like Kroger and WalMart and so-on. So: it's easier (MUCH easier) to FIND a gun for sale in the U.S. than it is to find a leg of lamb for sale. Once FOUND, it's more difficult to buy the gun...if you do it legally. If you buy illegally...well, I don't really know how that works, nor do I know how dangerous it is. Supposedly it's quite easy to find an illegal gun for sale IF you know the sort of people that sell such things (which I do not).
  • No. I shop almost exclusively at Aldi for the price break and they sell leg of lamb from time to time. I've seen guns for sale at Walmart, but I've never bought one. You have to fill out paperwork to buy a gun and you have to have a license to carry as well.
  • Lamb is a seasonal item usually. I've purchased it both fresh and frozen at Smith's and Raley's and Safeway without filling out a single govt document nor having a background check by the FBI. Oddly enough though, even in my mid 70s, some stores still actually ask me for my ID when I buy booze. "The program requires it" they tell me. Odd that I should have to do it to buy a beer but not to vote I think. Buying a gun in many jurisdictions is a drawn out process too. You buy the gun fill out the state and federal documents, provide your ID and your down payment, including the extra fee to "process" the federal and state docs. then wait 10 days or so to pick up your gun. That leg of lamb may not always be easy to find, but it is much easier to purchase.
