I’m still in the dark about what makes this family so bad. Can anyone enlighten me?

So very glad to learn Maryland limits flamethrower ownership.

Same here. I used to live a 1/2 mile from these homes while attending UF, and there is most definitely not a lack of space for parking.

Not related to Florida Man, but I still remember my shock when my Mom casually told me she owned a flamethrower (turns out she used it to unfreeze pipes and clear away thick ice during the depths of Wyoming winters).

aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intending to kill

I don’t get it. So when will it be considered intentionally deadly?

I’ve got a flamethrower for burning the weeds in the cracks of my brick walk. Sounds fun, but it honestly doesn’t really work and I usually just weed by hand. Fun weeding hack: sit cross legged on your kids’ skateboard so you can weed, scoot forward, weed, etc. Long boards are more comfortable for this.

Abrams said. “They’ve had issues with other residents, and it needs to be brought to light.”

I see what he did there.

That’s probably a “flamethrower” like Elon Musk’s “flamethrower” that is a roofing torch / weed burner. It’s basically an oversized propane torch with a diffuser than shoots out several feet. This shoots gasoline or other liquid fuel 30’. For some other models they also sell a gelling compound to make it stick to people “weeds” like napalm.

Shouldn’t he be out stopping bad guys with flamethrowers?

I suspect that, if Florida-Man-With-Flamethrower is pale-skinned and his incineration targets are otherwise, the current SCOTUS will free him. I mean, he’s only exercising his right to “bear arms” shooting fire instead of steel-jacketed rounds. Which Justice will write the majority opinion?

That’s only if he’s a good guy with a flame thrower.

I’d let him park.

The title of the linked video is “Yes, you can legally own a flamethrower!”

I would humbly suggest that maybe that shouldn’t be the case
