arma virumque cano (et alia)
So, you position is that the state should enact gun shop security requirements so strict that it would make it impossible to profitably run a gun shop, thereby reducing the supply of guns. Is that a fair assessment?
Mikeb, no security measure is perfect. The thieves used an SUV to crash in. The shop had a fence, an alarm system, and cameras. You either fail to understand the tiny profit margins of small businesses, or as Anonymous said, your real goal to to drive gun sellers out of business.
Did you say the tiny profit margin of a gun shop in 2012?For a couple grand proper bars could be installed instead of that flimsy screen they drove right through.
And at no cost at all, you could stop hating good citizens and put your ire where it belongs--on the criminals.
You haven't priced Iron Work lately, have you Mike B? 1/2" solid bar stock screen,( where the storefront looks like the front of a jail cell), with gates would be closer to Ten Grand for that store front. And although crashing into it with an SUV would have caused more damage to the vehicle, it still wouldn't have been able to stop it from crashing through.
That's bullshit, Mike. Gun sellers are making record profits. They can all afford proper security bars.
You do understand the difference between a major manufacturer and a small business, right?
Mike B. doesn't know the difference. According to him, all gun shop owners are making money hand over fist. All your small profit margin belong to me is what he and other democrats believe in.
Small business gun sellers have never had it so good. What the hell are you guys trying to say?
Well, according to Justice Stevens, the right to self-defense stops at a pre-programmed cell phone dialing 911. This owner had a automatic system that alerts the police (plus several other layers)- so if that is good enough protection for the body, why isn’t that good enough for property? Perhaps you want to admit that calling the police seldom stops a crime in progress?
Mike,You've never run a business, have you? Have you spent your entire career as a UN hack?
Yes and no, but what's that got to do with anything?
It has to do with the fact that you're clueless about running a small business. It's like when Whole Foods opens a store in a neighborhood and the moonbats demand 1% of their profits for affordable housing. Freaking clueless.
I'm clueless because I suggest that gun shops should spend the money necessary for proper security?
No, you're clueless because you insist on security that hardly any small business could afford. That leaves you open to the charge of having ulterior motives.
Mike tried, very unsuccessfully to run a sight seeing business in Italy about 10 years ago. DD Tours was the name I believe.
