I do not live near Katy, Texas, and I probably never will, but I can guarantee you that I will never purchase a single thing from you.
For the rest of you all, the answer to the inevitable, "Why?" is contained within this radio interview:
Matt Patrick: It is 6:16, Houston’s Morning News and I’m Matt Patrick. Glad you’re here; also glad that Tactical Firearms owner Jeremy Alcede is joining me, and, Jeremy, first of all, I love your place. I’ve bought a couple guns from you already. Love the new range. But I also love what you were saying about the Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act, which is being presented by the Democrats now. You say, "Look, if this is gonna make them happy, then let’s give them this, let’s let them have this and go away and leave us alone." Right?
Jeremy Alcede: Right. I mean, they’re never going to stop. This is just an ongoing thing that, y’know, I don’t agree with anything, y’know, if you give ‘em an inch, they’ll take a mile. But, y’know, if this is gonna shut ‘em up, then give it to ‘em. The only good thing that could come out of this is, y’know, it’s gonna not allow all these big online companies to purchase ammo from the manufacturers so the manufacturers are gonna be overloaded with ammo, so guess what that means? They’re gonna be calling me sayin’, "Look, I’m gonna give you an extra dollar-fifty off off a box when you buy it. Please buy it." So it might actually lower the cost for you, the consumer. I know when I get it lower, I’m gonna sell it lower to you.
Patrick: And that’s good for me.
Matt and Jeremy, you are cordially invited to get bent, which should not be terribly hard with your heads so far up your respective asses already.
Oh, and, yes, you read that correctly – Jeremy Alcede is supporting the Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act because he correctly believes that it will result in more business for his company through the shutting-down of other companies, but, better, he considers this bone tossed to the authoritarians hopefully enough to keep them satiated for the time being, while simultaneously acknowledging that authoritarians are never satisfied and this is just one step in a long line of steps.
The first position is that of a cold-blooded, calculating businessman; oh, sure it screws over his competitors, and it likewise screws over his customers (no matter how he spins it, removing competition is never a good thing for the customer), but establishments like his probably will end up making more money under the SOASA.
The second position, however, would be laughable if it were presented in a humorous fashion, but I have an annoyingly nagging suspicion that Jeremy was 100% honest; he truly believes the SOASA would be sufficient to stall "gun control" extremists for the time being, despite knowing that "if you give them an inch, they will take a mile". That kind of disconnect from reality makes me truly wonder as to his sanity…
1 With a Bullet has some additional information on Jeremy Alcede and Tactical Firearms, and in answer to his question, I do believe, from what I have seen, that Jeremy is a quisling, especially given his willingness to sell his competitors up the river to make another buck.
