Northern Virginia Residents Up In Arms Again Over Another Proposed Gun Store

posted on February 27, 2016

After torpedoing NOVA Firearms’ plan to open a new store in the Cherrydale section of their town, Arlington, Va., residents are now coffee-klatching and Change.org-petitioning their way to stopping NOVA Armory from opening a storefront in Arlington’s Lyon Park section. 

“We oppose a gun shop at this location. We are alarmed to hear of these plans,” their petition fusses, then boasts that “similar plans to open a gun shop in Cherrydale were thwarted due to community opposition” and urges the landlord to reject the gun-store tenant, just as the Cherrydale landlord apparently did.

The irony is that these are some of the most garrisoned, guarded, pampered and privileged people on earth. For them to spend their days waging some pretend war on the notion of armed good guys—even as they benefit from that 24/7/365 cocoon of armed protection—takes a special kind of silliness, entitlement or pretense. You go, Arlington!
