Dear Gun Nuts

We had a shooting here in Wisconsin the other day. Two people dead, one wounded, and the 17 yo kid who did the shooting has ruined his life and is looking at a long jail sentence.

And this was over what? An argument that got out of hand at a corporate owned corner store that never even asked for people to show up with guns and could have hired security if they’d actually wanted it.

All these stores: the Apple Store, Nike Town, Whatever Mart, that you think you’re protecting are capable of hiring security and never asked you to show up. So why do you think it’s somehow your “patriotic duty” to rush to their armed defense? It’s not. It’s not your job. Let the stores figure it out for themselves how they want to handle things and leave it at that.

This whole thing is just stupid.

Next time there’s a protest stay at home. If the local Qwick Trip wants security they can hire professionals.
