An online friend from Italy recently told me that he didn’t want to visit the United States because he thought everyone was shooting at each other here. Hmmm. I remember being somewhat similarly put off when I saw this storefront in Southern California on my first visit there in 1990. How different the attitudes there were from those I was used to on the East Coast. It was only some dozen years later that I found a gun shop with the exact same name in Westborough, MA. Maybe it is safer to stay in Italy.
