Jeremy needs t act fast and decisively if he wants to keep his business alive.

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

BACKGROUND:

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 McCarthy’s Stop Online Ammo Sales bill. And here’s the ostensible reason he’s concocted for giving two of Congress’s most dedicated gun-grabbers his support: if we give them this one – let them ban on-line ammo sales – they’ll go away and leave our guns alone. Relax, he isn’t really that dumb. Actually it’s 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 isn’t so naive as to think they’d go away and he says as much:

I mean, they’re never gonna stop. This is just an ongoing thing that, you know, I don’t agree with anything, you know, you give ‘em an inch and they’ll 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 won’t 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, it’s 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. They’re gonna be calling me saying look, I’m 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, I’m 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 Jeremy’s competition, it will actually save you a few Samolians!

That’s right. In Alcede’s 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. Jeremy’s only too happy to throw a bone to people who’d 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 don’t 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?

I honestly did not see an issue with banning online sales of ammo.

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.
