Who you gonna call?
Being in Wal-Mart and perusing the ammo selection isn’t always easy. I tend to buy ammo there because in my town, it’s the cheapest place to get target rounds. Oddly enough, this isn’t about Wal-Mart but the people who tend to hang out at the store. Do they look for me? A while back I was buying .40 S&W for my XD when I was approached by a man who was no bigger than I am. He proceeded to fill the air with anti-gun nonsense. I was able to ignore him and pretend he didn’t exist until he told me, and I quote . . .
“And don’t give me that crap that guns don’t kill people. If that was true, the United States would send only soldiers to Afghanistan and not give them guns.” I literally HA’ed out loud. I then made sure he knew that according to his logic, loaded guns should be dropped — minus the soldiers — in Afghanistan because, well, guns pull their own triggers. I was then called a vile name as he left me alone to continue my shopping. Sometimes it is the little victories in life that make us happy. I still see him at the Wal-Mart sometimes. He avoids eye contact and keeps his distance.
But this isn’t even the most ludicrous thing I’ve encountered regarding guns lately. I also happened across some silliness when I typed ‘ghost gun’ into Google (thanks to California’s Kevin De Leon).
