If Hillary Clinton is elected president and appoints a liberal justice to the Supreme Court, not only will the Second Amendment quickly be dissolved, but the entire Constitution will slowly be re-written.
Liberal policies are business killers.
Just ask this gun shop owner…
Mike Coombs feels like he is in the crosshairs of Seattle lawmakers, who this year implemented a special tax on the guns and ammo his Fourth Avenue store has sold for more than 40 years.
On January 1 Seattle began imposing a $25 tax on every gun and a 5-cent tax on every round sold within city limits. The stated objective was to raise up to $500,000 per year to fund programs to prevent gun violence. But Coombs claims the real effect is to kill his business, and a gun rights legal foundation is battling the city for figures it believes will show the law was never about taking in revenue.
“What they’re trying to do is get gun stores out of the city,” said Coombs, 48, whose Outdoor Emporium store operates in the shadow of Safeco Field and boasts of having “the largest selection of outdoor related products at affordable everyday warehouse pricing.”
Longtime customers have told Coombs they simply go outside the city now to buy firearms and ammunition rather than pay the tax, which he blames for the layoffs of two workers so far this year. Precise Shooter, a smaller gun shop in Seattle, moved 16 miles outside of the city to Lynnwood on the day the tax took effect.
It doesn’t take a genius like Sheldon Cooper to understand what’s going on here, and Coombs is 100% correct.
Seattle wants this gun shop to close, and they are willing to put a man out of business to make their point.
It would be awesome if Coombs’ longtime customers would stick around and continue buying from him, but it doesn’t make sense to spend more money when it’s completely unnecessary.
It would make a big statement, but people are hurting in Obama’s economy.
This is a shame.
Liberals still don’t understand that the only safe person in a gun-free zone is the shooter.
