Its all about the money: Drive the online ammo retailers out of business and make big bucks.
As far as being in it for the money and it being at our expense, as far as I know he is a capitalist, as are most small business owners. So I guess in a way you would be correct in saying that. But after my limited dealings with him and some of the other shops in the area ( Collectors Firearms, Fountain Firearms, Carters Country) I didn't find his prices or service to be out of line. As far as range fees go he is right there with Top Gun and Memorial Shooting Center.
We are not best friends but in my dealings with his business he has always treated me right and given me good value for my dollar.
As far as him being evil or greedy for wanting to eliminate competition by getting rid of on line sales through legislation, I am curious. Would you say he is more or less evil and greedy than Harley Davidson? Lets not forget that way back in 1984 a big import tariff increase (from 4.5% to 49%) was put on all imported motorcycles over 700cc to help their business. Should we all boycott Harley because of that?

Well considering how close his shop is to Ammunition to Go, I can see where he might want to get rid of the internet ammo dealers.

It sounds like he spoke without thinking the whole thing through. Unfortunately, supporters of the 2nd amendment can't take those kind of chances. The other side will use it to their every advantage.
It is possible to want a business for more than just the income. I like places that make you feel welcome and like a friend. But at the end of the day if your not making profit then what else really matters? If you cant keep the place running, you cant have all that other stuff. Just an empty storefront.
So no, Im not saying hes greedy but in my opinion it is obsurd to think it has nothing to do with money.
So you bring your own ammo and hes cool with that. Thats great really, like I said its smart. But trying to do away with the online competition is most definatley about money. How many people complain about WalMart vs small business? Its the same thing. There is also that whole thing of he is supporting the antis. It may not be how he feels but it certainly helps pressure competition.

After an investigation by the US International Trade Commission, President Reagan imposed in 1983 a 45% tariff on imported bikes over 750 cc. In 1987, H&D was competitive enough to ask the Reagan administration to lift the tariffs a year early, the only American company to ever do so.
I seriously doubt this gun-store owner would ever do anything similar.
