Time to break out the Robb Allen logo
Oh, hello there. Are you looking for some groceries? Maybe some liquor? How about a shotgun? It’s free with a qualifying purchase.
That’s how we imagine stepping into one of the fine establishments below might go. As it turns out, there are a bevy of places that casually sell guns along with other wares. They sell wedding dresses, tanning memberships, and guns. They sell donuts and guns. You know, the usual stuff.
About half of the signs in the pictures are places that have gun promotions, like jewelry stores or car lots that offer “Free Gun” with purchase. The first instance of this lie was here.
For this scene Michael Moore brought a gun with him for that closing scene to make it APPEAR like he was given a gun at a bank. Actually they gave him a voucher for a cooperating FFL that would honor the voucher if you could pass the background check. Most that I know also supply a cash value on the coupon if you want something other than the promotional item, or you got caught with a joint in college.
There are others that are hardware, sporting goods, and general stores. What’s the big deal? I bought my first Mosin Nagant from a sporting goods store. They also sold clothes, tents, canoes, and fishing poles. Depending on your age you might have bought a gun from a hardware store. Hell I’ve owned guns with brands like JC Higgins and Glenfield which were originally only sold through Sears. And General stores? Duhhh!
And a place that sells liquor and guns? Oh the HORROR!!! How many of us have bought beer at a gas station? Just about all of them have a beer cooler, depending on the state laws some have liquor licenses. Does this mean the Irving or Shell station down the street is promoting drunk driving? Hell if drunk driving is illegal why do so many bars have parking lots?
They are anti-freedom, not anti-gun. They’re also pants-shitting cowards!
