Our money’s on Ms. Rios here . . . Big 5 store manager quits after being forced to sell a gun to man she found threatening, suit says – “He was a customer who wanted to buy a gun. She was a store manager who balked, finding the man erratic, threatening and potentially dangerous. Their tense interaction at a Big 5 Sporting Goods store in Downey prompted police to step in. After company officials overruled her and released a weapon to the customer, Delilah Rios resigned. In a lawsuit filed this week, she alleged wrongful termination and violation of labor laws, among other claims.” Big 5’s deep pockets are about to be a little lighter.
The people’s house . . . Ban on guns in Missouri Capitol lifted – “Gov. Eric Greitens’ administration has reversed a short-lived policy barring most visitors and employees from bringing concealed weapons into the state Capitol. On Monday, new signs were erected outside the building noting that the statehouse was no longer off limits to firearms if people have permits to carry concealed guns.

Retro WON: Sweetheart Grips, A Love Story? – “A clear, lightweight acrylic known as Lucite was new to (WWII), and covered the viewing ports of warplanes. Soldiers salvaged the Lucite from downed planes and used it to carve replacement grips for their Colt M1911A1 pistols.

WSU Students And Faculty Protest Campus Carry Law – “Students and staff against a law allowing guns on college campuses held a demonstration on the Wichita State University campus Tuesday. A small group gathered near the Rhatigan Student Center to speak out against guns on campus. The rally was called ‘Carry Minds, Not Guns.’ Organizers spoke of the need to contact lawmakers, emphasizing that there is power in numbers.” Just look at that throng…doesn’t look like there are enough numbers at Wichita State to exert much power.
Whoo hoo! . . . These States Are Pushing Tax-Free Shopping Holidays for Guns – “What’s especially interesting is that the sales tax holidays for guns can be more generous than those for back-to-school shopping. In Mississippi, the normal 7% state sales tax is waived only for clothing and footwear items priced at $100 or less during its back-to-school event. However, there is no such price limit for tax-free gun purchases during Mississippi’s Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday. In other words, the most a shopper could save for school clothes is $7, on a $100 item. Gun buyers can save much more during the Second Amendment tax-free shopping holiday—$70 on a $1,000 purchase, for example, or possibly much more.”
