Maybe a healthy donation to the Second Amendment Foundation, to help with their Chicago lawsuits, would be in order.

Question of the Day: Would You Buy a Gun From This Man?
Posted on August 2, 2012 by Dan Zimmerman @ thetruthaboutguns.com
Jeremy Alcede owns Tactical Firearms in Katy, Texas. Click here for a recent interview he gave a Houston radio station. The subject: Lautenberg and McCarthys Stop Online Ammo Sales bill. And heres the ostensible reason hes concocted for giving two of Congresss most dedicated gun-grabbers his support: if we give them this one let them ban on-line ammo sales theyll go away and leave our guns alone. Relax, he isnt really that dumb. Actually its much worse than that . . .
Jeremy knows damned good and well that the only way people like Lautenberg, McCarthy, Schumer, Feinstein, the Bradys, et al. will be ultimately satisfied is when firearms and ammo sales are restricted to police and the military. Period. Alcede isnt so naive as to think theyd go away and he says as much:
I mean, theyre never gonna stop. This is just an ongoing thing that, you know, I dont agree with anything, you know, you give em an inch and theyll take a mile. But if this is gonna shut em up then give it to them.
So if he knows regulating online ammo sales out of existence wont begin to mollify the anti-2A forces, why is he willing to get behind their bill? Because it would be good for business. His business.
No, the only good thing that can come out of this is, you know, its gonna not allow these big online companies to purchase ammo from the manufacturers. So the manufacturers are gonna be overloaded with ammo so guess what that means. Theyre gonna be calling me saying look, Im gonna give you an extra $1.50 off a box, please buy it, please buy it. So it might actually lower the cost for you, the consumer. I know if I get it lower, Im gonna sell it lower to you.
See? All those pain-in-the-ass online sellers like Lucky Gunner, Cheaper Than Dirt, Brownells and the others are only costing you money, Mr. John Q. Gunowner. If we can just eliminate some of Jeremys competition, it will actually save you a few Samolians!
Thats right. In Alcedes world, where the sky must be an interesting shade of chartreuse, more competition means higher prices for consumers. Adam Smith, please call your office.
Make no mistake. Jeremys only too happy to throw a bone to people whod like nothing more than to take your guns away and give them an incremental win if it means a few extra bucks in his collaborationist pocket. As Alcede makes a point of saying when asked about large quantity ammo sales from his store, we dont sell personally to turds. The question is, as someone who values their Second Amendment rights, why would you give any of your money to one?
That right there is all I needed to read.
This guy had better make a serious contrition, or gun owners won't buy from him.
Too many American businessmen have the natural impulse to follow the loudest mouth and that mouth controls ABCNBCCBSPBSCNNMSNBC. Liberalism has a loud and authorative voice, but it is usually elitist and out of touch with truth and reality.
