Talk About Shooting Yourself In The Wallet

A Virginia business called Absolutely Outdoor posted against carrying except for LEO. Ed Levine, Founder - Virginia Open Carry, sent him an email and received this reply. I X'd out one word but you can get the idea.

Here is the email

Hi -

Someone told me that you guys have a sign on your door that prohibits the lawful carry of firearms by customers (unless they are law enforcement).

I just wanted to confirm that before I put the word out to 30,000 Virginia gun owners.

Thanks,

It sounds like Rick Baker needs a plexiotomy... That is where a surgeon cuts out a section of one's abdomen and puts in a piece of plexiglass so one may see out.

Once he goes out of business he will not have to worry about concealed carry customers....and with his attitude that should not take long.

He must be a very smart business owner. I wonder how long it will take for him to hit bottom...

If I understand it correctly, this place sells guns as part of its sporting goods business. What sort of business person would respond this way? Sort of makes you wonder what else may be going on and if the guy might be having some mental issues. I have to admit this just doesn't make any sense at all.

What an idiot. Why would you want to treat people that way when you sell guns. I don't et these people that attack people with name calling just because we own and love our guns. I got into a bug argument with a douche on yahoo cause I made a comment about Obama saying we need to stop people from stock pilling ammo and I said Obama was an idiot cause you cant even find ammo and some lib blouse wearing poodle walker calls me a hillbilly idiot gun nut. Needless to say he got a pretty rude response. Hopefully this guy gets help and loses his business.

...or just add a bumper sticker that says "No Gays or Lesbians allowed" below the no guns sign and then send a picture to CNN.

Question

I'm sorry but I find it hard to believe that anyone with any business experience would write such a letter.
