“Gun Deals ‘Rnt Us!” That is Groupons new motto.
Want to sell a course on firearms safety? Skip Groupon.
Groupon is “No guns, M’Lady.”
Why would anyone selling gun-related offers care? You don’t have to offer a discount these days. If anything, you can hike prices.
We are seeing the biggest gun rush in my lifetime. Shelves are being cleared of guns.
Anyone who sells anything related to guns has a gold mine. The lines of buyers are getting longer.
I don’t think this is a flash-in-the-pan. I think this is a tipping point. Americans who were not sure whether to buy a gun are buying them. But they have to line up. Gun owners are buying more.
The country is divided between those voters who own guns, and who are single-issue voters, and those Americans who don’t like guns, but whose political commitments are diffused. They are not committed to gun control in the way that gun owners are committed to the Second Amendment.
Every gun purchase reinforces the commitment of the buyer to his cause. There is no comparable reinforcement for gun haters.
Gun owners will win this political fight.
Groupon is politically irrelevant — a symbol of liberal futility on this issue. This sort of thing simply reinforces the gunnies’ commitment to stand firm against symbolic knee-jerk responses to the Brady Bunch.
