Barry Bauer from Herb Bauer Sporting Goods joined the show today. He talked about the consequences of increasing gun regulation on his shop. He noted that the so-called assault weapons barely contribute to gun violence- it's mainly handguns.
He feels the anxiety his customers face, hoarding guns why they think they still can. Guns are sold out. Barry has hundreds of rifles on back order now at his store. There is still concern over how much ammunition is available.
Barry says that gun sales make up about 30% of his business. He says his business can absorb the loss of guns, but he doesn't want to go through that.
Callers asked various questions about the availability and rarity of guns. They are concerned with the new laws that might ban bullets, internet sells, among other over-the-top legislation.
One day, we hope Mayor Ashley Swearengin to join our show again. She appeared once on a phone call, but always seems to find something else to do when we have made further requests. So, we sent her an open invitation:
"The Bill Manders Program" on PowerTalk 96.7 would like to an extend the Mayor an open invitation to join us as an in studio guest between 3-6 p.m. any day of her choosing. We would love to have her on to discuss the important issues facing the city. Please let us know when she can join us.
|The law caught up to Spencer Scarber in Mexico, and now he's back in a Fresno jail. He is the convicted rape suspect who fled to Mexico during his trial. Now, his family, including his CHP father have been arrested as well. The parents and sister are accused of aiding and abetting his escape south of the border.
I know most of my listeners wold do anything for their children. But, where do you draw the line? I would not break the law in order to cover something up.
