Today I was in a business place pricing light firearms. I was actually waiting for a prescription to come up and was just window shopping, basically.

As I was kneeling looking at the pellet rifles a couple came around the corner of the shelves where these and the pellet handguns were on display.

The woman was a younger person (note that I am not saying “lady”). In the first moments they were there she let go with a bad profane word followed immediately by the worst of the four-letter words. She studied over the various pellet and plastic-ball shooting handguns.

Turning to the man she remarked, “I’m trying to find something I can shoot the kids with that won’t hurt them too bad.” Mercifully, I think she walked away without a purchase.
