Where I live the gun departments at both Cabela’s and Bass Pro were packed.

The sales people were saying it was Black Friday all over again. We did our part to help.

Never shopped at Dick’s, so I can’t boycott them.

Regardless, I will continue to do business with the local mom-and-pop gun store whom I’ve patronized for years.

The store is appropriately named.

I shopped at Dick’s ONE TIME, specifically to get some rifle ammo that was on special and had a rebate offer. The sales people in the firearms department were woefully ignorant — and this was in DFW Texas for crying out loud — and the clerk could not find the rebate information and ended up giving me the wrong rebate form. I have never shopped at Dick’s since and never will again.

Can anybody tell me why we can get pictures of the crime scene in Benghazi, but cannot get one freaking photo of the “broken window” at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT?

Bueller? Bueller?

There is Dicks Sporting Goods at the Danbury Mall near where the shooting took place and only a couple a minutes from where I live. I never bought much from them but now I will boycott them for sure. I go to the local gun shop where I live. They have a better selection and are more knowledgeable than anyone at Dicks.

“Gander Mountain from now on”

When I was in Gander Mountain and ready to pay for my purchases of gun powder and bullets the cashier said, “Strip down, facing me”.

Making a mental note to complain to the manager about the gun registry people running amok, I did just as she had instructed.

When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out that she was referring to the correct insertion of my credit card.

I have since been asked to shop elsewhere in the future.

One thing about this tragedy is it is showing what organizations and leaders stand for. It is letting us know who will fold under the slightest pressure and who will stand firm on principles.

I was at a Cabela’s in my state this past Sunday. They were packed at the gun counter. Those folks said the exact thing.

It took me 3 hours to drive to the store.....and even with 8 people working the counter, it took 2 hours to get service and an hour to get processed out with my new shotgun. It’s crazy.

Boy, am I glad I didn’t buy my rifle from these clowns.

Their prices are horrible, their selection is even worse, and even their job recruiters are snotty. And now this!

It’ll be fun watching my local GOP radio water-carrier, Glen Meakem, try to spin this. Dick’s has been one of his sponsors for quite a while.

People know what is coming...

I just don't know how I'll be able to go to show my face at the range without my bayonet firmly attached to the end of my AR-15. Or a flash suppressor for my .22

Let them pass stupid feel good legislation. Even Dianne Feinstein isn't suggesting a retroactive ban. It will do nothing and have no real impact other than drive the price up a little for pre-ban items.

Thanks for the nicely stated humor this cold, rainy winter morning. :-)
