A chasm-like divide is opening up within the American cultural landscape, thanks to the emotional exploitation of the anti-gun democrats.
In their latest push to discriminate against the conservative American populace, the left has vilified the Second Amendment, the NRA, and, in turn, those Americans who have chosen to exercise their right to bear arms.
Not only are retailers such as Dick’s and Walmart implementing arbitrary new age requirements for rifle purchases, but some stores have discontinued the sale of ammunition or firearms altogether.
And it isn’t only sporting goods stores that are finding themselves succumbing to the wrath of the liberal court of opinion; American grocer Kroger has bent the knee as well, having recently discontinued the sale of firearms-related items at a subsidiary of theirs.
Apparently that wasn’t enough for Kroger, who is taking things one step further this week with a far more generalized initiative.
“Jim Shepherd with The Outdoor Wire reports that 57 specific publications are targeted for removal from Kroger’s racks with titles ranging from Guns & Ammo, and Firearm News, to Recoil and S.W.A.T. Shepherd points out that the move could be a nail in the coffin to already sluggish print sales for gun magazines.
“’Simple answer: in many locations, grocery stores are essentially the only remaining newsstands of any size and comprehensive variety. They’re the single best link between publishers and their potential readers,’ Shepherd said. ‘If your titles are removed, you lose the potential to reach those readers. Without those sites, your distribution universe is also diminished. Lower distribution means lower revenues and already-tight numbers become even more constricting.’”
If this politically charged series of overcorrections isn’t stifled soon, we run the risk of having to digitally edit Tombstone to have Val Kilmer brandishing a broom.
Where is the line between dislike and disdain? How far is it from the line in the sand that the left has already crossed over and over again? Is there an end to this discrimination in sight, or will our children grew up bullied and marginalized because of our traditional ways?
