THE LAST GUN SHOP IN MINNEAPOLIS. Can you believe it? A fine midwest city driving every gun shop -- but one! -- out of its borders. The owner of that last, lone gun shop has waged a long, long fight for his life, as described by Dave Polaschek.
And the city rulers don't even have to stand up before the citizens and pass a ban. Not when they have the oh-so-convenient weapon of zoning.
Over at TCF, woodtramp says: "It's really a pet peeve of mine when I hear all this 'They'll get my gun when they pry it from my dead cold hands' from some folks who'll then sit on their duffs and do nothing when something like this happens."
So, what are freedom-loving Minneapolitans doing about it? Seems to me there was a large and healthy libertarian movement somewhere in those parts ...
