Pressure to conform, to alter your business practices?
No, not at all, Uncle Sam wouldn't do that. He wouldn't put the onus of guilt on a business in order to influence its behavior, that would be extortion.  Only thugs do that.

Well, this 'sporting goods store' might as well go ahead and pull baseball bats, hockey sticks, OH HECK I'm not even gonna list all the items that can be used as weapons...  but I will never spend a dime with them, on anything.

All they are doing is legitimizing the "ban semi autos" demands.

There's an outfit around these parts called "Sports Authority" - I don't know (or care) if they're national or regional. It's a huge store so when opened near me I went to take a look.

"Where's the guns?" I asked.

A clerk pointed me to a corner where they had a couple of BB guns.

"That's it?!

I was getting yuppie angst wafting in the air from the stoner clerks (smells like unshaven armpits and four-day-old underwear).

Nevermind, I'm headed to Ben's Loan  ;D

Dick's doesn't even sell AR type rifles, to my knowledge. Hell I used to work at a Dick's store when I was in college, in the gun section. The only semi-autos we had were boring 3-5 round deer rifles. So they're going to pull even those Elmer Fudd guns off the shelves, thereby totally giving credence to an argument that has none.

I sent an email to my new Congressman today, just trying to remind him that he does have support in opposing new legislation. His handler wrote back pretty quickly stating that the Rep shares my concerns and agrees. I just hope we don't lose too many to the fait accompli tactic currently being used by every single media drone.

I am thankful that I have guns. Not as many as I would like because, hey, you can never have enough guns. But I will someday pass them on to my kids, legally or illegally, doesn't matter to me. Nice thing about guns, they last several lifetimes if properly cared for.
In a doomsday scenario, hippies will be among the first casualties. So not everything about doomsday will be bad.

I am so bloody tired of this BS...Leftists pass laws that do nothing but endanger law-abiding citizens and embolden criminals, people/kids get killed, their response is more laws against the law-abiding citizens, businesses and organizations supposedly who should know better and be supporting us throw us and our rights under the bus to appease the pc/diversity/multi-culti types dominating the libiot power centers...over and fricken over again!!!  Please, tell me WHY I should bother being a law-abiding citizen anymore?  WHY?!?!?!

Listening to the "news" on the raydidio this am was particularly depressing. There was an endless stream of pussies who, with a full load in their trousers, were breathless to flush our rights away in the name of pure cowardice.

I had a little tinge of apprehension last night when reading of the panic buying that is going on - there are still more guns that I want to own. But I chose carefully and am fundamentally ready for whatever comes next. I will not surrender; I will not submit.

I have zero confidence in my fellow man to do the right thing so I will do my own thing.

God help he who crosses me.

Cheaper than dirt advertises on Beck.  They don't seem the type to cave.

I wonder if they sold anything to the shooter?

Thanks God for the "Little Guys". Went handgun shopping Saturday for my sons for CHRISTmas. Went to my favorite little gun shop and was surprised to see the place packed. They were having a party! Free wine, beer, and food! I thought free alcohol at a gun shop was a bit strange, but it IS Alaska after all!

No, they wouldn't have, if anything they would have sold to the mother who was slain, but it shouldn't matter if they did or didn't, caving is caving, PR reasons or not it is BS.
