speaking of gun control, I was at my local Fred Meyers store, it's kind of Walmart but a little higher end, and I noticed they are now selling guns, a nice selection if some what over priced, pistols, revolvers, shot guns, and even some AR-15 style rifles.
30 years ago they use to sell guns but stopped about the same time Wards and Sears did.
I can now buy a pair of Dockers, an ear of corn, a oil filter, a LCD TV. pair of pearl ear rings for the wife, and a Remington 1911, all in one stop.
Surprised me that she was even interested in a hand gun, as she already has a shotty for home defense. But it turns out that she wants a concealed weapons permit. I support that notion, be nice to have one of us armed when we venture out to the farmers market and such.
