6. Oh you poor soul.

At the time of Sandy Hook I owned 2 semi auto pistols. I had them destroyed as per ATF instructions.

You are so involved in gun mythology that you cannot fathom a simple statement of personal protest.

I could have sold them.

I could have given them away.

However I had come to a personal decision that this type of weapon should not be available to the civilian market.

The only rational thing for me to do is make sure these particular guns never returned to the public market.

For God's sake if I did not want them why in hell would I give them over to someone I don't know?

I meant what I said and acted in accord.

So, when Dicks decided that they did not believe such weapons belong in civilian hands why would they put their existing inventory on the streets by routing them through another retail outlet?

That money was well spent in PR, advertising and personal integrity.

Personal integrity. Something the gun industry, gun lobby and the NRA have little of.

As my Mom would say, "Bless your heart."
