There is a new storefront sign added in the past few days to the local gun shop in Los Osos (see photograph). It says, “ ‘Arm Yourself Here,’ — Sara Kelly, Los Osos.”
You might infer from the sign that Sara Kelly is a gun enthusiast, but no, she had the nerve to write a letter to The Tribune, (“Violence and ill will,” Letters, Aug. 5) objecting to the new gun shop in town.
In her letter, she states, “Now, after one passes the friendly ‘Welcome To Los Osos’ sign, one gets another message: ‘Arm yourselves here.’ ”
The gun store owners took one phrase out of her letter, twisted the meaning and plastered it on a sign in Los Osos for all to see and think she is a gun enthusiast.
Are they trying to shut down any objections to their store with public humiliation?
I hope the community shuns this store.
