Apparently God wants us to harass businesses which sell a lawful product.Â Interesting that one of the “Clergy” in the pictures looks an awful lot like Bryan Miller.Â I didn’t even know Bryan was ordained!
Colosimo acknowledged that a significant number of handguns sold at his shop have been discovered to have been used in crimes. However, he said, that is because of the shop’s large sales volume for decades.
“We sell 100 times more than some other stores,” he said, adding that the shop has had contracts with “at least 250” Pennsylvania and New Jersey police departments during the last six decades, including Philadelphia’s.
He said he believed it was unfair to deny guns to prospective buyers simply because their previous purchases had been used in crimes.
“Suppose you came in here 10 years ago and bought five guns,” he said. “And you lose one of them, or it’s stolen, and five years later it’s used in a robbery. Does that mean I shouldn’t sell it to you?”
Miller said that retailers who signed the pledge still could “use discretion” in such situations.
Good for Colosimo’s for standing up to this crap.Â Any local gun shops who agree to not sell guns to people who have had guns stolen from them will not get my business, and I will do everything I can to make sure everyone knows why.
If anyone buys for a minute that Miller wouldn’t sue or smear any shop that used this “discretion” he speaks of, then they are nuts.
