Gun shop is not for bad guys | Letters

Just a thought about our new “assault weapons boutique.” I went in there last week and looked around.  It is thoughtfully laid out with a good selection of weapons, ammunition and other related items... even some nifty survival equipment.

But more important, I got to meet Mike Marinos.  Here’s a man who comes to you with the education, training and life experiences to responsibly select and present the principles of safe and effective weapons use.

This is not a boutique where the “bad” people will come.  Mike knows how to recognize and deal with them.  Your more likely to find “good” folks there,  police officers, both active and retired, professional military and security personnel.  They are the people who will come to your aid and help when they can.  “Bad” people don’t seem to like this kind of individuals.

I come under the retired “police sergeant” category—26 years, 22 of those in Alaska, and 18 of those years in the Arctic. I know good people, bad people and guns.

Rest a little easier in your “family friendly” community, because Mike and the good people are here too.
