A Thousand Oaks (TO to us locals) pet store is requiring a “gun safety” pledge before it adopts pets. They are now national news and are enduring lots of negative attention from people who feel a need to give them a piece of their mind. Despite what one might think, I can’t be too hard on this shop.
This position is a completely irrational emotional one that comes from a place of ignorance of firearms, propagandization by the anti-gun lobby, and emotion. The mainstream social narrative on gun control has been an entirely emotional one. Is it any wonder that something like this occurs?
Guns and pets have no relation to one another. A child adoption service. Eh, I could see that. But pets? No way. This action is pure virtue signaling. These fools feel like they are doing something through this action because they have no meaningful recourse against horrible, infamous crimes.
I say just ignore these people. They’re bleeding hearts, yes, but the blame for this stupidity should be on the media and the anti-gun people who peddled the drama. Push emotional arguments at people and you will get dumb emotional reactions.
