MI: Finley: I set Out to Buy a Gun but Got a Lesson Instead

On the same day of the Texas church massacre, I stopped by a local sporting goods shop intent on purchasing a new shotgun.
I’ve had my eye on the nicely built 12-gauge over/under for some time, and when I spotted an ad among my Sunday circulars offering it for an irresistible price, I headed out to the store.
The gun was in stock, and after shouldering it, my desire to purchase the weapon was confirmed... Instead, he came back with the store manager, who eyed me with a worried look and asked why I had pitched such a fit earlier. I tried to explain my computer frustration, but she wasn’t moved.
“We don’t feel comfortable selling you a gun,” she informed me. “You were in such an agitated state, we just don’t want to take a chance.”
|And your lack of self control should have no impact on MY right to buy a gun.
Have you thought about THAT?
