Someone attempts to make a political point on a dealer, and the dealer ends up 1) Refunding the money, 2) making an in kind donation of a rifle, 3) donating the same amount as the refunded purchase to a charity.

Now the public’s used to liberals getting their hands caught in the cookie jar, and making all sorts of efforts to extract themselves. If you gave me the above list, me, as a member of the general public would probably make the assumption that the gun shop did something wrong and is trying to make up for it, not that it was the victim of attempted fraud (and grand larceny.)

I respect the idea that the gun shop has here, attempting to embarrass a liberal into maybe doing some right things himself. I really do think that there's no chance at all that this will work, and probably harmed their image in making such gestures in the eyes of the public as a whole.

I sure don’t see it the way you do, what, anyone that does the right thing or takes a stand is trying to cover something up? You need a better class of friends
