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.
I don't even......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.
Anonymous sources are used all the time. That's how we found out about Watergate.Wow....I can write a story, use my source as anonomous, and you guys will beleive it if you agree with it? Wow, and we complain about the mainstream media being bad at credible reporting.
Logical Fallacy-Rationalization and poor analogy.Anonymous sources are used all the time. That's how we found out about Watergate.
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.I think the most hilarious part about this article is the "no buying guns and ammo at the same time" policy.
I get e-mails from them all the time and as far as I know they are credible.Does anyone know much about the author? I've never heard of politichick before. It could be made up, but I would not be at all surprised if it is an exact recounting of an actual conversation with a CA retail worker. You hear dumb enough stuff at real gun shops, I can only imagine some of the things that come out of the mouths of teenagers at retail stores in CA.
