In this case, the store is a small chain in Iowa and Colorado, and the reason is the owner’s personal anti-gun animus. He took the trouble to express contempt for his (former) gun buying customers in an interview with an Iowa reporter.
The store’s a sporting goods store which has had a couple of aliases but is now called Jax Mercantile. Anti-gun reporter Pat Curtis applies considerable slant to his (her? its? “Pat” is one of those names that keeps you guessing, just ask Saturday Night Live) story, but here are the key sentences.
Store owner Jim Quinlan says he’s struggled with selling firearms that come with magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. He says after the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut he didn’t want any part in that business.
[S]ome shoppers swear they won’t visit the store again. …“I guess that’s a customer we won’t have any longer,” Quinlan says.
Most sportsmen, Quinlan notes, don’t have a need for guns that fire multiple rounds.“Most sportsman use one bullet or maybe two bullets.”
Got that? You’re not a sportsman, you have no rights, and he doesn’t want your business.
