(KHOU Houston)   It takes a special kind of incompetence to fail at running a gun store in TEXAS, about the same level it would take to blame Obama for the bank's decision to foreclose now that you've been in default on your loan for more than a year   (khou.com) divider line 192

FTFA: "The bank said the gun store's loan is in default, but the gun shop said this is about politics. "We've never missed a loan payment on any of the loans," said Alcede. "


Yeah, no....the bank can't just decide to foreclose because they don't like you, even if it's for "political reasons"

"Right now our second amendment is under attack," said Jeremy Alcede, co-owner of Tactical Firearms.

Sounds like your ability to be a deadbeat is under attack.

Seriously in TFA even his own Business partner calls BS on this guy and says he's basically a crook

All signs point to the owner putting most of the money up his nose and projecting the blame elsewhere.

"If Obama woulda just seized these guns like everyone told me he would I coulda cashed in on the insurance settlement! Why does he hate job-creatin' small businessheroes?"

"They're outright lies," said Alcede. "We wouldn't have the outreach and outpouring on our side if people thought I was a criminal."

Hmm. The NRA Community would never give money to someone they thought was trying to spite Obama, regardless of that individual's standing with the law.

No, no.  He's right.  They owe 6.5 million which puts it just within the "political reasons" threshold.  Any more than that and it's a legitimate financial reason.

You have to admit that it is a competitive market. You can't run a business like shiat when there are dozens of competing companies doing the same thing you are all over town.
 
2014-06-25 12:30:30 PM
No, it's pretty easy to fail at being a gunshop at texas.  All that needs to happen is that the drooling moron customer base needs to go next door to the other gunshop.

cgraves67: You have to admit that it is a competitive market. You can't run a business like shiat when there are dozens of competing companies doing the same thing you are all over town.


Agreed. It's probably easier to suck at running a business when there's a lot more regulation involved. ABC stores for example don't give a shiat about customer service because what are you going to do, go somewhere else?
 
2014-06-25 12:34:00 PM
So an idiot gun store owner bet the farm buying AR-15s thinking they would be banned soon and he would have the only large inventory in the country.  He marked them up 2-3 times their actual value, didn't sell any and defaulted on his loans.

/Never buy guns at any place with the word "Tactical" in its name.
 
2014-06-25 12:35:29 PM
Obama?  You're blaming the best thing that happened to gun sales in all of history, for your gun shop failing?

What's next, it's Hillary Clinton's fault that your cankle store is closing?

You have to admire this guy's gumption. He is appealing to his clientele for this kind of bullshiat. They will eat it up ala Cliven Bundy and he will be a martyr.

If claiming Obama is trying to grab his guns doesn't work, he'll lay claim that the bank is run by homosexuals and they are shutting his gun store down in order to pass gay marriage laws in his town...

Dude is fishing for Sarah Palin to lead the Conservative Outrage Brigade into his town and show their support by buying all his stock.

When are these dopes going to understand that the COB only supports rich and famous people who cry over Obama and the Homosexuals? If you aren't already rich and famous, then join the rest of the brigade and step in line...
 
2014-06-25 12:39:31 PM
Same thing happened to me.  Last year I used my Constitutionally protected right to free speech to make a 212 minute movie of me talking about how the world should be but Obama put pressure on the distributors and theater owners to suppress my free speech.  I'd be a rich Hollywood big shot right now but Obama can't stand to see the little guy win.
 
2014-06-25 12:39:46 PM
Obama personally directs Icon Bank to shut him down?
Obama works on the orders of the Trilateral Commission.
Which is a subsidiary of the Bilderberg Group.
Who is pushing the U.N.'s Agenda 21.
Ban Ki Moon is a reverse vampire.
Bought and paid for the Lizard People.

Or this guy is a moron, who couldn't move enough weapons to the Mexican Drug Gangs?

Gonz: Hmm. The NRA Community would never give money to someone they thought was trying to spite Obama, regardless of that individual's standing with the law.


I suspect he's going to get very little help.  Most people haven't forget him and Piers Morgan.  Which is probably why he's going out of business in the first place.
 
2014-06-25 12:42:22 PM
It's in a bad spot. The other problem(s) for the store is that there are many large gun dealers within 15 miles. Academy, WalMart, Bass Pro Shops, Gander Mountain,Carter's Country & 7-8 small gun shops similar to Tactical.
 
2014-06-25 12:43:00 PM
150 people? Presumably he's counting employee families at least, but still, how many employees can a gun shop possibly need?

The International Banking Consortium probably has homosexuals in it, but that's not who runs it.

I figured their biggest problem (other than money mismanagement) is competition.  You'd probably have a hard time throwing a rock and NOT hitting a gun store in Katy, Texas.

Oddly enough, I watched this *exact* scenario play out here in my state recently.  Couple of guys partnered up, opened a store, and covered the walls with ridiculously overpriced "Tactical Everything".  I went in there once and the cheapest thing they had was a Frankengun Carbine for $1,100.00.  On the way out the door I saw they were also selling .22 Long Rifle ammunition for $.50 cents a round. (that isn't a typo.  They wanted a buck for every 2 rounds ffs.)

They were gone in 6 months.

There seems to be a common theme among patriots with not being able to pay their bills and/or taxes.

Yeah, no....the bank can't just decide to foreclose because they don't like you, even if it's for "political reasons"


I suppose he can PROVE that he never missed a payment and then sue for wrongful lawsuit.

Are those crickets I hear?
 
2014-06-25 12:47:56 PM
From the picture of the inside of the store,  if 150 people are employed there then that might be one reason they are in the hole so much.
 
2014-06-25 12:48:39 PM
Could it be tied into Operation Choke Point?

Given how little the Obama Administration has been able to progress gun control legislation, this likely seems to be the best way that they can do something behind the scenes.
 
2014-06-25 12:49:05 PM
Subby's right. Why, some poor Texans actually have to share a gun shop! They have to have more of them NOW!
 
2014-06-25 12:49:15 PM
I, for one, am so impressed I'm hitting Interstate 10 for that 2 hour ride to Katy.

I really want my name and particulars recorded by the feds from a gun shop that just plays the edge of reason, treason, sedition, or insane behavior. "You're not just a buyer, you're now a person of interest" should be one of the slogans.

I'll bet most gun buyers probably steer clear so the parking lot should be nearly empty.

Someday, some person will have to explain to me why  adding rip-stop nylon cordura webbing or a rubber o-ring  to something automatically makes it tactical.   And while we are on the subject, is there such thing as a "strategic" Flashlight or AR-15?

Schmerd1948: This guy couldn't turn a profit selling guns and ammo in Texas during the Obama presidency.


If you specialize in more ammo and reloading, that could very well be the case.  Much of this inventory is just not available from the manufacturer's at the moment.  The shelves are sitting bare for this type of merchandise.

TheManMythLegend: From the picture of the inside of the store,  if 150 people are employed there then that might be one reason they are in the hole so much.


Not really. They're Texas-employed. Federal minimum, 5 - 8 hours per week, no benefits, no pension.
 
2014-06-25 12:52:10 PM
This guy's business acumen is pretty low.  Obama's only blame may lie in absolutely saturating the market by initiating a buying frenzy.  You know, from all the gun legislation he and Hillary and the UN have been forcing through Congress.
