Amanda Marcotte: US is 'shameful' because St. Louis single moms are buying guns in aftermath of Ferguson riots
It’s a day ending in “-day,” so Twitchy’s favorite super-feminist is outraged.
This time she is furious at the eeeevil single moms and other St. Louis residents who are buying guns in the aftermath of the Ferguson, Mo., riots:
Sales have quadrupled at ‘Metro Shooting’ in Bridgeton according to owner Steven King. He says sales have mainly been to men, but not all:
“Probably a dozen or two dozen guns to females, single mothers. We’ve sold to black people, white people. We’ve sold to asians who have businesses on West Florissant.” said King. “They’re just afraid of whats going on and they’re coming in to purchase either additional firearms or their first firearm.”
King says he’s personally seen the fear in their eyes and feels the sorrow in their hearts. King says he’s not raised prices but he knows that some are raiding their savings accounts, feeling that having a gun is that important.
To recap: Single mothers, black people, Asian businessmen, and white people are buying guns to protect themselves from dangerous rioters and looters. To make matters worse, the gun retailers who are selling to these consumers are earning profits.
The shock! The horror! The SHAAAAME!
