Anyway, there's some agitating now to expand the ordinance to the county line, allegedly in the name of safety to prevent yahoos from shooting bullets into the air on New Year's Eve, whence they will now plummet to earth onto Lexus SUVs instead of cornfields and the occasional startled cow.
Ever ready to cram his mug in front of the local news cameras and shiv the Second Amendment in the liver in return for some free airtime, local gun shop owner Don Davis, owner of Don's Guns, former Hoffa bodyguard, and all-around douchebag and general tool, offered up this gem:
"Indianapolis has grown and it used to be right out here at 38th street was the city limits. Under Unigov, they're now out to the county line roads. And, all the guns I sell today are not like I sold 35 years ago. These guns go a long way. So this is a big city, it's time we should do it, and it doesn't effect the indoor shooting."It will not, perhaps, surprise you to find out that Douchebag Don has an indoor range.
Now, it would be one thing to come out and say "Yes, I agree that the 'burbs have encroached on Farmer Johnson's backyard range, and maybe we should look into this," but the bit about the guns he sells today not being like the guns he sold 35 years ago is just gratuitous B.S., mugging for the camera, and he knows it. The AR-15's he's selling now are no more potent than the ones he was selling in the '70s. I am once again proud of the fact that I have never set foot in this jackhole's shop, nor will I ever.
