Northern Virginia Gun Store Opens ... And Somehow Time Finds Courage To Soldier On

posted on March 30, 2016

Despite protests and petitions, proclamations from local politicians and predictions of mayhem from fretting anti-gun neighbors feeling their “safe space” threatened by that frightening Constitution, Arlington County, Va.’s, first independent gun store in many years opened Saturday ... and somehow the world didn’t end. 

Nova Armory had a busy first day of business, one of its owners, Dennis Pratte, told the Washington Post, with dozens of supporters turning out for its grand opening, along with customers shopping for guns, gun safes, ammunition and cleaning kits. 

Nonetheless, a few blocks away in the hidebound liberal enclave of Arlington, protestors—including four state legislators, four of five Arlington County Board members, the county manager and a school board member—ranted, raved and called on the faithful not to give up their opposition to the scourge of Second Amendment freedom being exercised in their midst. Isn’t that special?
