If I was her, I'd be standing out side that gun shop today with a huge sign saying "Do not buy guns @ Dick's Sporting Goods they will call the police if you have brown skin".

After I'd called every newspaper in town to come out & talk to me........k/dar

I'm scared too.

I'm scared that our country is filled with people who take pride in their ignorance.  Then, because of that ignorance, they make all kinds of stupid choices and decisions that risk the lives of themselves and others.  It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.  Reality may be depressing but it'll cause you to make less dumb decisions in your life.  Look into it people.  It's called reality.  (this means no more religion or Republicanism, so you'll have to shiat-can that crap immediately)

I assume Fox News is going to be all over this, right? I mean, someone was hassled by the cops for trying to buy ammo. This is right in their wheelhouse. I'm sure they are going to take up this woman's cause. Any day now...

OK, (and I'm not saying this is right, but) I'm a middle aged, white, professional...

And, I think people would look at me a little funny if I went to a store to buy eight boxes of ammo and a mask.

Owning an AR-15 sounds like reason enough to be suspect.

And so it begins.  I'd probably be pissed if it happened to me, but I haven't been able to buy more than 300 rounds of any type of ammo over the counter anywhere for the last couple of years unless I order it online.  Most places  limit you to 3 boxes because of supplies.  I saw that online you can buy a 30 gallon barrel of ammo, I think 12000 for about 4 grand.  I bet that gets you thrown on some lists unless you're the owner of a shooting range.

Me too. I must have a "deranged maniac look" or something.

Hell, I once walked into a bank with a grocery sack full of change in my hand. The teller looked scared and asked me if this was a robbery. I said, "Um, no. These are coins."

I'm sure it's just, like 0.1% of the total population, and that all it will take is for all the Moderate Americans to make themselves heard, and totally, publicly issue a Fatwad on them as being No True Americans....

That may very well be, but it sure as fark isn't right that the store would call the cops on you nor is it right that the cops would come farking knocking without SOME sort of scarier evidence.  What The Actual fark?

And how the hell did they track her down?

You think that's bad, go to a store and buy nothing but baby food and rat poison.
 
2015-12-16 5:35:03 PM  
Anyone think she might be trolling the store, and the media?

She goes into Dick's asking about buying a few boxes of Ammo for her AR (the general public has been taught that ARs kill on their own), and buys a mask while she's there.

Then sits back and waits...

Half the city of Fremont is Indian (asian), the store and clerk better damn well understand their clientele if they don't want to alienate half their customer base.  The cops better care too because the future mayor will eventually have a funny-sounding name as well
 
2015-12-16 5:41:24 PM  
Yeah, not surprising, Dicks is known to be pretty easily scared. They pulled all sporting rifles for a few weeks after sandy hook, then when the furor died down, restocked. While they won't open a store in Detroit, after a local news story came out about handguns being used in 95% of murders in Detroit, the Troy and Roseville stores (suburbs on Detroit) said they won't be carrying them. 6 weeks later they were back on shelves.
 
2015-12-16 5:42:49 PM  
Oh and those masks aren't really worth it. You just look like a tool. For the avg person the gains you get are pretty insignificant, according to a PhD in exercise science I asked one time. Save your money and just train harder.

People keep telling me that a 30 round murderzine will kill 30 people, so why is it that someone has to buy 160 .223 armor shredding death pills to get noticed?

I say, if you buy more than 3 at a time you get a good visit to a reeducation center.

You go to buy ammo at a place called Dicks Sporting Goods, and wonder why they live up to their name.

The place I normally buy ammo (if I just don't reload it myself) doesn't have a counter, exactly.  It's a grocery store, and the ammo aisle is one over from the bakery aisle.  .223 is directly across from the hoagie rolls.  Only recently - like in the last couple of months - has that aisle become fully stocked again.**  Those shelves were bare for a long, long time.

**Except for .22 long.  You have to ask for those at checkout as they keep those locked up like cigarettes and mouthwash.

She said she used her credit card for the mask purchase.

To state the obvious, society has this bizarre expectation that the government can and will keep them safe from terrorists.  The Republicans have obviously been talking quite a lot about the government's failure to do so lately.  If the government is expected to do that then this seems exactly the information they need to be given, and what people apparently expect others to report.  Someone spending too much time at a self storage unit, someone buying a mask and trying to buy ammo, everywhere I go now I'm seeing the "If you see something, say something." billboards.  It's as if we've invented the time machine, but the problem is it only goes back to 1984.

Seriously?
Fremont?

I know California gets all sorts of inbred out in the sticks (seriously), but in the Bay Area?
WTF?

"about buying eight boxes of ammunition for her AR-15."
Incredibly vague though, they shoot everything from .22LR to .300 AAC. How much in a 'box' anyway?
I'd be pissed and might follow her home if she got 8 boxes of .22LR. Who the hell can get .22lr like that these days?

She is totally guilty of being B&P! (Brown and Pudgy), but they are still a bunch of Dick's...
