Owner of Recently Opened Gun Store in California Reports Death Threats

A heated debate of the opening of a Los Gatos gun store resulted in death threats toward the store’s owner.

The threat came in the midst of an emotional debate about guns and gun sales in Los Gatos, prompted by the opening of Templar Sports. The University Avenue shop has been the site of protests from local residents in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting tragedy. The store opened just weeks after the Newton shootings, and it does offer assault style rifles and guns as well as fishing gear.

    Death threats toward a gun store owner? The threatener doesn't sound too bright to me.

    This is more of a divide among nominal "liberals" than has been reported. Some are so anti-Second Amendment that they disrespect the First and openly call for state abuse of the Fourth. They generalize gun people as appallingly as the worst racists, yet don't stop to ask themselves who they expect to do the confiscating.
