    From the article:

    We’re told that if a woman claims to want a gun for home protection, she usually has intent to kill someone if they break into her home. With someone like you, you’d probably be denied right away.
    The problem is that a lot of our employees are very anti-gun, and believe there should be strict background checks so they turn almost everyone down. It’s different in each store location, but we’re in a very liberal area so it’s much harder to find 2nd-loving employees.

    Apparently that's what you can expect if you live in CA. I'd be interested to hear from some of you in CA about your experiences.

    Hmmmm... sounds like the indoctrination the kids are getting in school is working as planned. Sad.

    Frank: Now that’s a very interesting subject. You’ll probably be shocked to know that it’s up to all of us salespeople to decide who we personally think should and shouldn’t own a gun. We’re trained to look for signs, like fidgeting, nervousness, or even too much confidence. If we see any of those signs, we’ll usually deny them immediately.

    A-M: You mean that’s all you have to do, just by looking at someone you can say ‘no, I’m not letting you buy a gun’?

    Frank: Yep. And if a couple comes in and the woman does most of the talking, we’ll probably say no right away.

    At least, with the employees deciding who they want to sell to you still can go to a store that will take your money.
    It's their store, they should have the right to deny service to anyone. On the other hand you can deal with someone else and never spend another dime with them.

    Anonymous sources are used all the time. That's how we found out about Watergate.

    Logical Fallacy-Rationalization and poor analogy.

    Anyhoo, according to this gentleman he is talking about his store. In the article he says that if you want a gun to go to a gun show or another store which implies this is not a California issue, a mangerial issue at a single store.

    The mans facts about ammo shortages is dead on.

    Soooooo, we will just say the man is a real person and said what he said. Why is this a story about California when it seems to be the story of one gun store?

    I worked at the gun counter at Dick's (arguably a very anti-2A company) and we were never told to do any of this. Management did say that if you suspected something wasn't right, you should deny the sale, but that never included no selling to women or people wanting to use the gun for SD purposes. I agree with suntzu, if the story is true, it sounds like an issue with one store and not the whole process.

    So its OK to profile at this store? I thought that was illegal.

    I think the most hilarious part about this article is the "no buying guns and ammo at the same time" policy.

    More security theater. When you buy a gun at our local Academy, they escort you to the door. You don't get to hold the gun until you have exited. This would do nothing to stop their "perceived" threat of a customer shooting up the place. There is nothing to stop anyone from coming back in the store.
