Does the discount apply to gangbangers too? Or just to cornbread white hicks who hate Obama?  There's a reason this shiat only happens in flyover country and near military bases.  Try this in LA, NYC, or Chicago and see what happens.

I can't decide if that's a reductio ad absurdum or a straw man. Maybe a bit of both.

Well, if a pizza place here would do 15% off per firearm, I think we'd be having a lot of pizza at any Sacramento Fark parties. Between a few friends, my sister and I, we'd be getting several free pies.

7th Son of a 7th Son: Since the owner open carries, one would think if a robber shows up one of them would leave in a body bag, and not the owner.


Actually, it's always fairly shocking to me how many people claim to love their guns, whargarble about the second amendment, love carrying them around or displaying them somehow, making sure everyone everywhere forever knows they have a gun - and yet are complete idiots with their guns. You don't need a special permit to open carry in some states, including Virginia. As you don't need to take a test of any kind in VA to buy a handgun other than the "are you violent/a felon? check 'yes' or 'no'" type test either, someone who open carries a handgun in that state is not guaranteed to be able to use it effectively and safely rather than just be a total idiot with their weapon.

A firearm is only an "equalizer" or protection tool (or hunting implement) if you know how to use it, use it well and practice frequently. Otherwise it's just a potential hazard to everyone in shooting range, including the owner of the firearm.

In other words, I'd give owner and gun-toting robber equal odds, all things considered. I might even give the robber a slight edge, as they just may be the type who walked in wanting or expecting to shoot someone, something most of the rest of us would not even dream of and hope we never are put in a situation where we have to shoot someone in defense of ourselves or our families.

//I obviously do not think a lot of people who have them should be allowed to have them because they're unsafe idiots

If this place is giving a 15% discount to gun owners and still turn a comfortable profit, my first thought is, "Oh, they must be charging me 15% more than should be, and they're probably cutting corners elsewhere."

I recall that prior to passing the Concealed carry Law the liberal Washington Post was  screaming about "shootouts on every corner" ans "killings over every fender-bender". In fact, the violent crime rate  dropped and has stayed down. Most criminals are cowards and/or do not want to chance a confrontation with someone who might fight back. Rapes, assaults, robberies have dropped and stayed down.

I would imagine that this is one of the best arguments for arming the citizens.

I've actually been paying attention to guns again the last couple months, as I'm soon to be living out in the country and will have many acres to do some shooting on.

Around here scary black rifles are hard to come by, and when you can find them the prices are 2-3x what they would normally be.  "Normal" stuff flew off the shelves too initially but stock is back to normal and prices are still ok. Most ammo is still around, albeit at higher prices. .223, 9mm, and 22lr are hard to find though.

I've actually been paying attention to gun prices the last couple months, as I'm soon to be living out in the country and will have many acres to shoot on.
