    GATE CITY — As construction on the Route 23 bridges in Weber City continues, one small business owner has voiced concerns about the effect it’s having on her profits. Mary Murphy, owner of Gold & Guns in Weber City, told the Scott County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday that her business has declined noticeably over the past year or so. Though she attributes some of that decline to the lingering effects of the last recession, she believes the construction — and its estimated completion time of summer 2019 — is the main problem. “I do believe that summer of 2019...

  • Obama Takes Sick Revenge on Gun Store Owner Who Dared to Ban Muslims

    A Florida gun store operator has banned Muslims from his establishment, arguing that he has a right to deny service to anyone he considers a threat. Andy Hallinan made his decision after the shootings at military installations in Chattanooga, Tenn., last week. Florida Gun Supply of Inverness, Fla., was declared a “Muslim-free zone” in a video Hallinan posted online over the weekend. In response, President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice announced that it would launch a civil rights investigation into Hallinan’s establishment. That’s the Obama administration: a radical Islamic extremist kills five American servicemen and the Pentagon suggests that recruiting...

    The owner of a gun shop on the Westside of Indianapolis says he feels badly for the family of a man killed inside his store, but says the man brought on his death himself. IMPD says Monday's killing of Brian Wayner, 26, by Don's Guns employee Ben Chance was justifiable homicide. Wayner fired three shots, striking Chance once as Chance was trying to collect payment for a gun rental. Though a bullet passed through the upper side of his chest, Chance returned fire with his own weapon, killing Wayner. Chance remains in the hospital, but store owner Don Davis says...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 7 February, 2012 | Dan Zimmerman
    According to columnist Kevin Riordan, DyAnn DiSalvo is an unobservant, self-absorbed children’s book author and illustrator living in Merchantville, New Jersey (“a quaint Camden County borough of about 3,800, Merchantville is best known for Victorian architecture”). Actually, Riordan doesn’t describe her as unobservant and self-absorbed. That’s just the obvious conclusion drawn from reading of her outrage at looking up one day recently and noticing that her small town just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia now sports a gun store. And that it’s been there for over a year. Which means that something must be done about this. Now....

    For those DC prostiticians who claim that American gun stores are the main gun suppliers to the Mexican drug cartels, here’s a dose of reality. Gun store owners in Texas just stopped a terrorist attack in progress. Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo, an AWOL soldier from Fort Campbell in Kentucky, was arrested by the Killeen, Texas, Police Department near Fort Hood and remains in custody at the Killeen jail. When arrested, Abdo possessed “weapons, explosives and jihadist materials.” His bomb making setup came “straight out of Inspire (a terrorist magazine) and an Al Qaeda explosives course manual.” Abdo went into Guns...

    New York City may be a hotbed of liberals and gun haters, but a few gun stores actually do exist there. However, buying a handgun can be a frustrating experience -- thanks to burdensome regulations and lousy customer service, according an amusing article by Ariel Kaminer in the New York Times: "No Permit? No Touching the Pistols." "To run a gun shop in this of all cities is to weather a great deal of regulatory -- even hostile -- scrutiny," writes Kaminer, a New Yorker who (surprise, surprise) all but admits she hates guns and wouldn't shoot an intruder...

    Several weeks ago hunting buddy Bill Boone was showing me a very nice over-under, 20-gauge shotgun he'd recently bought at a good price from a gun store. I'd heard about Mackey's Landing Firearms but had never been there yet so I decided it was time to I head for Jamesville. Since our beginnings as a colony of England, Americans have been fascinated with guns. Guns were tools to harvest food, provide protection from predators, and a means of securing our freedom and independence. Guns were so important to our people that our Constitution guarantees that we Americans will always have...
