Incendiary Image of the Day: Cheaper Than Dirt! Chutzpah Edition

A certain member of TTAG’s writing stable argued that Cheaper than Dirt should be allowed back into gun guy’s good graces. The company has, after all, resumed the sales of modern sporting rifles, written a big check to the Second Amendment Foundation and joined the industry boycott of New York law enforcement agencies. What they’ve never done: issued a public apology for their post-Newtown withdrawal of AR-15-style rifles from their site and their attempts to disguise the decision as an inventory issue. (What they have done: raise their prices significantly to exploit the sellers’ market.) Until and unless they fess-up, as far as I’m concerned, Cheaper Than Dirt! can pound sand. The ad above? More grist for their new enemies’ mill.
