Moss Pawn Professional Gun Trolls

Also known as Iraqveteran8888 on YouTube, and who I refer to as “The Gun Store Guys”:

Yea that is their sign.  I jacked the pic from a recent GunWebsites video, where the guy went there to check the store out.

I just think it’s funny for all the bitching bitching they do about regular “sporting” firearms NOT being “assault weapons”, they go and put it on their sign.  It may not have been Barry and Eric’s decision though, because as far as I remember they just work there and don’t actually own the store.  You’d think they would have told their boss it was lame to put “Assault Rifle” on the sign though regardless.

Thoughts?

Meh, its marketing. For all the rhetoric, people are typically just looking to make a buck. In terms of being politically correct by 2A groups it may show the weakness in vilifying words, though Semi-Automatic Rifles could have gave them the same effect.

Mike, remind me not to send them a Christmas card this year. They are off the list.

Probably not enough space on the sign for “semi automatic rifle that is no more dangerous than a pretty wooden stocked deer rifle but is made of black plastic and looks a like a military issue weapon”

Yup. “Military-Style Semi-Automatic Rifle” doesn’t fit as well on a sign, and like it or not, when you say “assault rifle” everyone knows what you’re talking about.

Hey, they might actually sell fully-automatic rifles.

Otherwise, they are just tools.

It’s called sarcasm.

I think they’ve said before that a high percentage of their customers are not highly educated in regards to firearms (and other things too), coming in asking how to register their granddaddy’s shotgun, looking for “clips” for their “fo fi”, not knowing what kind of ammunition they need, etc….

Basically, the target audience for that sign is not the same as their target audience on YouTube.

Thanks Mike, just when I thought I couldn’t hate them anymore you find this little gem.

I could use this as a topic for a gun gripe video.

After all of their obnoxious gun-gripes videos, I wouldn’t give them the time of day let alone my business.

Never trust a pawn shop. They smell like cosmoline and broken dreams.

At least they said “assault rifle” and not “assault weapon.”

There store is in the hood. They need all of the “assault rifles” that they can get.
