    Hopefully they sent back a letter with a big FU emoji on it.

    Haaaa, they are going to boycott that store???

    Oh really? Since when do anti gun people shot at a gun shop in the first place?

    If Kittery Trading Post fights these fools, the store will end up as heroes!!!

    "Legislators say boycotts and protests are planned if the store does not respond to their letter."

    Extortion?

    KTP should move across border to NH. Imagine the tax revenues that place generates.

    People who have never bought anything at KTP, and never would, will pledge to boycott the store. Big Whoop.

    I like the emoji thought, but how about asking the know-it-all legislators and the sissy boycotters to actually come into the store and point out the assault weapons. Their heads would explode when they went in thinking everything was an AW. After last week, even the shotguns would be considered AW's.

    I'd send a letter back with three words: GET FVCKING BENT!!

    I'll bet dollars to donuts that none of the three that sent that letter are Maine natives and are elitist transplants from New York or New Jersey.

    If Kittery Trading Post caves to this extortion they are just as bad as the three who initiated it.

    I have spent a lot of money at KTP on non-firearm and related products. Tons of fishing and boating gear, clothing, camping gear and I even bought a couple of bicycles. I look at firearms and my wife and the kids spend money on other stuff. Would hate to see them lose all that business if they cave.

    Rent a fleet of Sky Cranes and move the whole store to a blank spot at Pease.

    I bet if we were to review the rules of the ME legislature we would find this to be a gross violation of ethics/power

    That was the first thing I was thinking, but then I thought I’d send a letter saying I would uphold the US Constitution just like they were sworn to do.

    Sure sounds like extortion to me.
    Might be time to hold a special session and toss these mutts.

    Yeah, yet we're the bad guys if we hold a peaceful protest in front of the home of a public official. o_O

    Clearly, these morons were sent to use their positions after the petition and panty-wringing back in March by the Moms.
    Counter Petition in Support of 2A and Kittery Trading Post

    After seeing the Left’s slash-and-burn campaining of anything they don’t like and moving on to the next fake outrage while leaving a business reeling, KTP, whatever they’ve been doing since March about this bs, is doing the right thing!

    It bears a reposting:

    I have to expect that KTP has quite a lot of visibility and ability to throw considerable weight behind any opponents that these pols might have. I’d also suspect that an owner of KTP might consider this a great opportunity to run for office.
