Last week I updated you on a Florida act restricting doctors from asking if you used firearms. The other day my wife was asked a similar question about ammunition in Wyoming. What gives?
Sharon went to Walmart to purchase .22 ammunition for my father as a gift to re-supply him for rodent duty on marauding summer chewers. It was a gag gift because of all the problems the rodents have been giving him at the cabin, but when Sharon went through the checkout the checker asked if the ammunition was going to be used in a handgun.
What does that have to do with the price of bananas and a cleanup on aisle six? We’ll use the ammunition in a handgun, a long gun or whatever style of gun that we want to, and it’s none of Walmart’s business as long as the check I give them is good.
This nosiness in America is getting a bit irritating. Simply knowing Google and other companies are tracking your every move via smartphones is disturbing enough, and now we are subject to questioning in the shopping aisle. What’s next? Is the clerk at the local Western clothing store going to ask me if the bandana I just purchased is going to be used in a convenience store robbery?
If the questioning corporations butt into your life, follow my motto: “Just say no.”
