In MI tonight, a gun store sponsors a little league baseball team and is met with angry parents and idoits online.
Todd's Guns in MI paid for a sponsorship package for his son's little league team The Cubs. So the uniforms they wear say "The Cubs" in large letters and underneath in much smaller print "Todd's Guns". When the head coach found out he was very upset... stating he didn't have any issues with guns themselves, but didn't think the business was appropriate for children's athletics.
Apperently he is not alone as other parents were upset with children wearing uniforms payed for and sponsored by a gun store.
I was actually surprised that there are so many ignorant people who were offended by this business stepping up to help local athletic programs in it's area... AND his son is on the team!
Funny how none of the bitching parents coughed up the $500 for the sponsorship package... but are ready to point their fingers in disgust at the guy who does becsuse they find it in bad taste.
Ask them what's good taste? Furthermore, in my opinion they are showing ignorance. Ask them how did this country gain it's independence from Great Britain? How did we win freedom from those oppressed by the Nazi's in WWII and win the war against the Japanese after Pearl Harbor?. How did we settle this country out West during the 1800's? Why do we have a 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Right's? What can save your life and your family's lives from home invasion? and the list goes on................................................ .........................
I'm not surprised. Sixty years ago, this never would have taken place but three generations later, nothing surprises me anymore. Michigan tends to be rather conservative with the gun issue if I'm not mistaken, and that is based mostly on the fact that Michigan is a serious hunter's state (corrections are welcome if wrong). In which part of Michigan did this happen? Was it in a particular part where more leftist views exist?
Not any more.
Used to be, people in Britain were free to own firearms, and even to carry pistols (unlicensed).
At that time, the British police were not armed. It wasn't necessary, since any citizen could defend himself, and the police carried moral force and did the "clean up."
Nowadays, almost all firearms are forbidden to most people. There is neither carry nor the right of self-defense. However, the criminals are well armed. (How can that be?)
And many of the police are armed.
One might be tempted to think that, since Britain is an island, it should be pretty easy to control the import of illegal firearms. But evidently that is not the case.
Evidently, when a government bans something that is desirable, the law-abiding do without, but the criminals are always well supplied. Who woulda thunk it?
I believe the shop is in Lambertville... bout an hour S/W of Detroit near the Ohio border.
Any suggestions or advice. I just hate traveling outside the USA . We Americans are not loved like before..Should I wear a disguise ?
Wow,no problem with guns but it isn't appropriate.That tells me they still want kids sheltered from guns.I'd ask them since that's their fine upstanding attitude,how are they going to feel when little Egbert find a gun and thinks it's cool to play with it and shoot his buddy or himself.Lets not educate our youth about the world,lets protect them in a fantasy world and make even more spineless wimps to take care of us when we're old.Too many female genetalia in this country.
