    If I were willing to brave the mall this time of year, I'd try to get a picture!

    Okay, decorate the tree with "peacemakers"!

    Don't you just love the way some people try to impose thir belief system on others?

    Urban has a LOT of gun related stuff.

    Last time I saw gun earings, gun patterned scarves, uzi belt buckles, and a gun shaped ashtray.

    I bought a plate there that has a bada$$ schematic of a 1911 taken apart.

    I'm told that something like 80% of people are completely incapable of understanding irony. Carol Corda is evidently one of them.

    Pistol Christmas Tree?

    Hmmm.

    Wouldn't have been a Pistol Pine, would it?

    Good enough for me . That's her choice . She ought to be happy she HAS the choice to shop elsewhere .

    You mean the tree or the ornaments? Either could be construed as "imposing belief" on others . Me personally? I'm thick skinned and could care less . Xmas tree or flaming pentagram , as long as they don't stifle my rights , I could care less what they display .

    Did she read the rest of the Bible? Not exactly filled with "peace".



    My tree has a bowhunter in a treestand ornament. Used to have a rifle ornament, too, don't know where it went.

    What can you expect form Northern California hippie remnants.

    That's pretty much how the folks are up there. We need to rally up our pro-2ndA bretherens to shop at that Urban Outfitters.

    Guns ON the tree? Oh no....

    Everyone knows that guns belong UNDER the tree.

    I am a Northtern CA hippie remnant.

    As soon as I was old enough I Greyhounded it to Texas.

    My difference was I came to adopt the culture, not change it.

    I have two beautiful children by a southern bell.

    The fact that when they dont hear you, they say "Sir?" or "Ma'am?" brings a tear of joy to my eye.

    My 3 year old shot her first Model 60 the other day. Now I get with all seriousness that a 3 year old can muster:"Daddy can I have a pink one?"

    Guess what will be under the Christmas tree this year. One of those ugly pink Crickets.

    She gives me "oohhs n' ahhh's" about my AR's. So guess who is custom building her one in pink w/ a .22 conversion.

    Merry Christmas everyone.

    Proof positive that there is still good coming out of California, unfortunately it seems that most of the good is COMING OUT of California.:p

    BTW, I love to hear great Dad's talk about the special times with their children, that is what brings a tear to my eye! :D

    Urban Outfitters? I'm not suprised. This is the same retail chain that located its Cincinnatti store inside an old Church. I'm not a bible thumper, but that just seemed tacky to me.

    OK, I made time to go to the store today to see what the fuss was about, and the tree was GONE! I made the assumption that they buckled under pressure and took it down, but was informed that the firearms tree was indeed for sale, and it sold. The free market wins again...but i didn't get to see the tree.
