We’re gonna need a bigger gun cart!
With firearms being in the news, we visited a gun shop in Texas to talk to shoppers like this raccoon-hunting 16-year-old girl. She was buying a holster for her dad, I guess so he can stop lugging his gun around in his hand and have someplace to stick it.
What caught my eye in our photo series was that people were pushing big shopping carts, like they were at Kroger or something. Is it just me, or does that sound like, pardon the expression, overkill?
How much weaponry do you have to be buying to need a CART? Are they like shopping for a small army or an entire post office, or what? Is this where General Santa Anna shopped on his way to the Alamo?
All I know is, this is NOT a store where I’d try cutting in front of anybody at the check-out line.
