“There are gun shops & indoor firing ranges nearby, seems like a new one opens every few weeks. Whites are arming themselves to the teeth here. CCW classes & issuance are easy to find.”
One time I went to my local gun shop and there were some obvious Black, gang bangers there. I really appreciate the time the staff takes with it’s customers to make sure they purchase something that suits their needs. I guess the gang bangers didn’t have the patience to wait to be served. I was certainly willing wait nearly a half hour on one trip, but then I don’t do coke. There was a palpable feeling though of them not wanting to arm criminals.
Could be the gangbangers were only window-shopping.
They don’t want to go the NCIS & Form 4473 route. Producing photo ID could be a problem. Knowing they are under video surveillance could be another.
Buying heat on the street is more expensive, but safer.
Anyway, whitey is armed to the teeth and most gangbangers believe that risking getting shot just to show one’s mojo is not worth it as it involves those pesky but unavoidable trips to the emergency room.
