Seems that an online supplier of tactical gear opened a retail shop in a dumpy part of a dumpy city.
So what happens when people find out that there’s gonna be a shop that sells strictly ‘firearms accessories’?
People freak out.
“What kind of place is this? Is this a gun store? If so, I have a real problem with that,” said Odessa Smite, who lives just blocks from First Line Tactical. The mother of three said she had “real problems” with what she saw online.
“If they’re just selling different kinds of holsters and flashlights, I have no problem with that. I don’t like the fact that they’ll be selling knives,”
Nina Lewis, believed First Line Tactical glorified weapons and sent the wrong message to young people.
Well the store did say they would only sell to people who have a NJ FID card, but realistically, they ain’t selling to the neighborhood. So what do people have to say when they hear of the store’s policy?
“My concern is, will there be some employee who doesn’t check? What happens if they get careless? What happens if some friend of a friend comes in wanting to buy something they have no business having? If they’re careful and following the law, then fine. Then I see them like every other business out here. But they better be careful who they sell to, that’s all I can say.”
And of course the local neighborhood organization doesn’t like it either.
Do we need any more proof that NJ sux?
