A Jefferson City, Missouri gun shop continues to see a lot of online controversy over a Facebook post from inauguration day announcing that they have no guns or ammo for Gropey McHairsniffer Biden’s supporters. The post from Trigger Firearms and Reloading certainly triggered a few fragile snowflakes into melting.
The store’s announcement looks more like posturing than anything meaningful. After all, they aren’t asking for proof that customers supported one candidate or another (or even if they voted).
At the same time, some social media denizens made it clear they knew guns like an auto parts clerk knows neurology. The posers claimed they were actively looking to buy lots of guns and ammo, but they wouldn’t do it at Trigger Firearms and Reloading thanks to the new sales policy.
From Facebook . . .
Joe Shockley I had a few grand to spend on a small backup to my Springfield XD and some other gear and ammo. Good to know you don’t want my money because I don’t want a fake billionaire reality tv star as my president.
Because what gun owner doesn’t spend a few grand on a small backup to a $500 Springfield XD? That’s precious. I wasn’t the only one who noticed Mr. Shockley’s live-action role playing outraged potential customer make-believe routine . . .
Parker Hodges Joe Shockley YOU THINK THEY GIVE A [naughty word deleted] ABOUT YOUR DUMBASS COUPLE GRAND, 9MM BULLETS ARE GOING FOR $1.00 ea. & NORTH BUT YET THEY NEED YOUR MEASILY CRUMBS GTFOH YOU UNEDUCATED MORON – GET A CLUE – LEARN THE ECONOMICS OF SUPPLY & DEMAND
David Johnson Joe Shockley with guns and ammo in such short supply I doubt they’ll miss a sale to a loser like you.
Greg McDonald You look more like a Hi-point gun owner
William White Joe Shockley Couple of grand? You took it in the shorts on an XD cuz you can find them for under $400 all day long. They must have seen the SUCKA tattooed on your forehead.
Don Sullivan A couple grand to spend on an XD backup? Why not just say something REALLY stupid like “I’ve got $20,000 I was going to spend on a backup for my Taurus, but now you won’t be seeing a dime of it! I want to speak to the manager!” There, see, way better.
Meanwhile, plenty of other deplorable Americans called out the other trolls.
Tommy Young Bad news. You’ve lost the business of people that live in California and Michigan. How will you ever survive?
Scott Stimpert Oh, no! People who have never bought a gun in their lives are now going to choose Trigger Firearms and Reloading to NOT buy their guns…😂
Of course, some disparaged the store to no end, but it looks like a nice shop from their Facebook page.
Indeed, how will Trigger ever survive without all of the business of those avid customers from California, Massachusetts, Michigan and other locales who had never heard of them until this social media kerfuffle went viral?
