She was in there a long time. I was about to get out and go see what was happening, when she came back out. Not our kind of place. It transpired that when she went in , she saw a sign that said "no guns allowed on premises." She turned around to walk out, and was intercepted by the owner, a middle aged lady , newly arrived from Tampa. My wife explained to her that we don't patronize businesses that adopt this policy. The lady said that a lot of people came in and left because of that, but that she was opposed to "guns". My wife told her that was fine, but she shouldn't expect to stay in business in North Georgia for long. This is not Florida. So many people move up here from Florida and try to make it just like the place they lived down there. Sometimes they get away with it, sometimes they don't.
Ironically, we are going to two gun shows tomorrow. In the morning, we will go to the one up here in North Georgia. Then in the afternoon we will go to one in Middle Georgia. I think we will wind up staying down there overnight, because we will be worn out and it's a long drive back home from the second show.
If you have never been to a gun show, you ought to go. It's a festive occasion, and one of the few environments where you can be sure you won't run into Moonbats or the Black Lives Matter bunch. I have already spent twice my gun budget this month, mostly on ammo and magazines. The political front is looking bad, so I plan to overstock on everything. I remember the 1994 gun ban Clinton fobbed off on the country. The way things look, I suggest heavy investment in ammunition, and magazines. If there's a gun out there you have been wanting, but just never bought, now might be the time.
I always enjoy gun shows. Most of the time, I see things I can't afford to buy but sometimes, just looking is pleasure enough.
Even so, if I see an early war Japanese Type 99 rifle, in very good to excellent condition, that has the mum, I'm going to buy it.
HOUSTON TAKES ACTION ON SCHOOLS NAMED TO HONOR CONFEDERATES.
11 May 2016
HOUSTON -- The governing board of the biggest school district in Texas has voted to rename seven schools previously named for Confederate leaders.
The Houston school district board voted Thursday to strip the schools of the names of Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee, Albert Sidney Johnston and Stonewall Jackson; Confederate President Jefferson Davis; Confederate Postmaster General John H. Reagan; Sabine Pass commander Dick Dowling and Southern dialect author and Confederate veteran Sidney Lanier.
Among the changes, Lee High School will be named for longtime Houston educator Margaret Wisdom and Jackson Middle School will be named for Hispanic community activist Yolanda Black Navarro.
When it embarked on the renaming process, the district said it wanted names to represent its modern values and diversity, in accordance with its non-discrimination policies.
