1) Their assumptions are at odds with observable reality; 2) their smugness, their arrogance, their sense of entitlement know no bounds; 3) they greatly enjoy lecturing their less-enlightened “inferiors” about things they themselves know absolutely nothing about.
I was chatting with a friend of mine recently and the topic of gun sales came up. My friend’s father owns a gun range near me and she said he’s seen a huge amount of liberals coming in to purchase weapons in recent weeks.
How does he know they’re liberals?
“They’re shocked to discover they can’t just walk out of the store with a gun.”
We’ve all heard about gun sales skyrocketing recently, but I hadn’t considered some of the tangential effects of the phenomenon until I spoke to my friend. Not only are many liberals suddenly learning to love their Second Amendment rights, many of them are finding out that the gun control narrative in this country — as repeated loudly and often by Hollywood and the mainstream media — is a complete lie.
The hilarity really takes off once a formerly hoplophobic libtard actually gets xzhis/xzher/xzhits delicate mitts on a firearm. Suggestion for any sane people present: DUCK AND COVER.
We tried to look at just who the new firearm purchasers were and we believe that more than 60% of these individuals were first time buyers. I can’t describe the amount of fear in my staff as we had the buyers show proof of safe handling as part of the purchase process as required by law. You have never seen so many barrels pointed at sales staff and other customers. It was truly frightening. We had to keep stopping the process to give quick safety lessons. We are adding many more basic classes in the coming weeks and encouraged these buyers to please attend. We hope they do.
Eh, not so sure about that myself. Consider: these doofi will likely wish to show off their new Tools Of Empowerment to all their friends, striking tough-guy poses, waving their piece around, and muzzle-sweeping everybody in the living room. Would that not make it more likely, then, that a lot of libtards are going to wind up shot dead because of such antics? The resultant thinning of the Proggy herd would certainly make life easier for the rest of us.
Okay, okay, I’m only kidding. I think.
While the safety of the employees at the range is a very serious matter, the most amusing and annoying part for the staff has been watching these first-time buyers discover just how stringent gun laws in California really are, including one of our newest laws requiring background checks before buying ammunition. Bouslog says it’s a bridge too far for the people who have been told their whole lives that it’s easier to get a gun than an abortion.
More than a dozen of these buyers (men and women) actually thought that since they filled out and signed everything, they could just walk out and go home with the firearm. Several actually said they saw how easy it was to buy a gun on TV and why did they have to fill out all these forms.
The majority of these first timers lost their minds when we went through the Ammo Law requirements. Most used language not normally heard, even in a gun range. We pointed out that since no one working here voted for these laws, then maybe they might know someone who did. And, maybe they should go back and talk to those people and tell them to re-think their position on firearms – we were trying to be nice.
Most were VERY vocal about why it takes 10 days minimum (sometimes longer if the DOJ is backed up) to take their property home with them. They ask why do I need to wait 10 days if I need the protection today or tomorrow? We pointed out again that no one working here voted in support of that law.
They really went crazy when we told them that for each firearm they had to do the same amount of paperwork and they could only purchase ONE handgun every 30 days. Again, we didn’t [vote] for that law.
We had people cuss at us and stomp out when we explained that secondary identification had to be part of the paperwork, as they felt insulted that what they had wasn’t good enough. We have a number of Yelp reviews calling us names and other things about how bad we are because of this whole new buyer rush.
Aww, there comes that whole useful-idiot thing to bite them in the ass again. Every one of them firmly believes xzhe/zxshe/it will be part of the nomenklatura crowd after the Glorious Revolution, and are always just shocked as hell to find themselves handed a blindfold and stood up against a wall instead.
