So this brought me up short…
“I know that it started as a discussion of cart-returning etiquette, and then people with small children discussed the difficulty of returning a cart if you have to leave small children/babies alone in the car to do it, and then all of a sudden, there were guns involved.”Posted 6 months agoCaptainFlashheartMember

America is ****** up when it comes to guns. I first really realised this when I started going outside of the big cities for work. Most notably a weekend in Nashville. Was with colleagues, on a Sunday, and we wanted to buy a bottle of wine, sit in the park and chat for a while. We went to the store, the store told us we couldn’t buy wine. Sunday, you see. The Lord’s day.
Either side of said store was….An “adult” shop, open and flourishing and a gun shop. Same. Urgh. So, porn and guns are fine, but a bottle of wine isn’t?
Never mind, we strolled on a bit (I know! Not driving!) and came across a massive sports shop. I love sports shops, so much lovely stuff to look at! There was everything. Awesome! I walked around like a kid in a sweet shop.
Then I came to the gun section. Not a single side by side. 🙁 There was a chap shopping with his friend, though. Standing in front of a mirror, with a Magnum and a Desert Eagle in either hand. Posing. In front of a mirror. With a Magnum. And then a Desert Eagle.
He held up the Desert Eagle, looked at his friend and said, “I think this one is more me”.
More you? A Desert Eagle?
I left. Fast. Before I did something very bad to him.
Guns aren’t bad per se. I have friends in Montana who hunt for food, who ski the back country with guns. They’re good people. I have friends here in the UK that I shoot with. We’re good people. Asshats posing in front of mirrors with guns solely designed to kill other people? They’re evil.Posted 6 months ago
