Are You Kidding Me?

Get a load of this. I was in the Sporting Goods section of my local Wal-Mart tonight, and you're not going to believe what I saw.

I came across a half-row of ammunition. I know, real shocking. Yeah, well, they had big boxes of 12-Gauge shotgun ammo just sitting on the shelves in cardboard boxes. It wasn't 00-Buckshot, but you still would not want to stand in front of it. Now, conversely, they had boxes of dinky .22 rimfire ammo, the kind that's only powerful enough for squirrel or frog hunting, locked inside an armored cabinet.

Are you kidding me? Lock up the dinky little bullets that have a hard time downing prairie dogs behind a half-inch of armored glass, but leave cases of manstoppers on the shelf for anyone to grab? And before you yell at me, it's easy to hide a sawed-off shotgun under a jacket.
