Ok, so this is the second time I am posting this. Apparently, this website doesn’t like a different position. I completely sympathize with you! This is a retail location and needs to apply to many different people and demographics. If you were to be judged by the prints that are in a retail space, you would think that the only people you would sell to would be high fashion anorexic men and women who are independently wealthy living on a beach somewhere and no one else simply because that is the art work that is up with them modeling the products that you sell in a retail environment. That argument is moot to say that you can’t have something that appeals to the sportsman who walks in the door as well as the hipster. I would have reacted and felt the same way as you would have if not been even more vocal about it! I try not to judge and I would hope that others would do the same, but apparently all of the these people making comments before me are too busy judging you to see the real issue that you are posting about. I know it sounds cliché but guns don’t kill people, crazy ass people kill people and I would prefer that we would be able to defend ourselves instead of waiting for a cop to arrive 3 minutes later (that is if we can even get to a phone to call them in the first place). I carry a handgun because I travel for a living and I had the unfortunate experience of having to pull my weapon on a man who was trying to get into my car to (his actions leading up to this made me feel physically and sexually threatened) rape me. All he needed to see was that I had it, and that was reason enough for him to turn back to his truck and I called in his plates. What would have happened otherwise??? 9 times out of 10, all it takes to stop a crime is the criminal seeing that you are armed and it is stopped. Think about that woman in Mt. Tabor Park, the shooting in the Clackamas Mall and others… I love Guns in the right hands. Let’s focus on our mental health care and not limiting our already limited freedoms!
