Default San Fran's iconic, last gun shop to close over new regulations

Well there ya go. No gun shops. A liberal paradise.

Gun shops = Bad
Letting illegals live in your city and murder innocent citizens = Good

San Francisco logic.

Surrender: San Fran's iconic, last gun shop to close over new regulations | Fox News

Ever since it was opened in the 1950s by a celebrated Olympic shooter, High Bridge Arms has been a defiant fixture in San Francisco's Mission District, but a coming wave of new firearms restrictions has prompted the last gun shop in the liberal City by the Bay to pack it in.

The proposed new city regulations, which could only be aimed at High Bridge Arms, would have required the shop to take and preserve video of all transactions and turn customers' personal data over to police on a weekly basis. General Manager Steven Alcairo said the shop's owners finally threw in the towel after years of what they consider being unfairly targeted with burdensome rules and regulations. Past regulations have required the shop to bar ads and displays from its windows and install cameras and barriers around its exterior. The shop has 17 cameras as it is, and turns video over to police on request, he said.

"This time, it's the idea of filming our customers taking delivery of items after they already completed waiting periods," Alcairo said. "We feel this is a tactic designed to discourage customers from coming to us.

"This year, it's this and next year will probably be something else," Alcairo added. "We don't want to wait for it."

Business for the last gun shop in the city of 840,000 has been good, according to Alcairo, especially since the store, which caters to law enforcement and outdoors enthusiasts, announced it would close next month.

Situated in the prominent city heart of Mission Street, High Bridge Arms was founded in the mid-1950s by Bob Chow, who competed in the 1948 Olympics 25-yard pistol shooting event. By some accounts a Bay Area institution, it has long been a tourist destination - specially for members of the law enforcement community who visit the city.

I found the staff to be friendly, decent, law-abiding people who have been harassed by the San Francisco anti-gun crowd for quite some time, Jim Wilson, a retired sheriff from Alpine, Texas, told FoxNews.com as he recalled stopping by the shop during a visit to San Francisco a few years back.

Shhh, they created this argument because they know they can win it. Kinda like when lefties protect terrorist. None do as far as I know, but it is common knowledge on the right.

I'll clarify...

Letting illegals live in your city and murder innocent citizens = Complicit

If a citizen murders someone in your town you are complicit.

Let me clarify things for the feeble-minded: if you are harboring a criminal and that criminal murders someone, you are complicit. The cities that provide sanctuary to illegal immigrants who commit violent crimes are complicit.

Not actually but it sounds good doesn't it? This is an attempt to paint all immigrants with the serious crime of one. same sort of logic that paint all Muslims with the crimes of those behind 9-11. It's lazy thinking meant to appeal to people prejudices instead of their logic.

If the shop is being targeted with new rules that hamper business that is ok then?
