Hobby Lobby Under Fire For Humorous Gun Signs

Hobby Lobby under fire once again for selling humorous signs that one anti-gun activist says “promotes gun violence,” according to Yahoo News. Leslie Ruffing from Aurora, Illinois, claims that while shopping at Hobby Lobby, she ran across signs that offended her from the “gun culture.” She claims to be a “gun violence prevention advocate.” She also has no sense of humor. After she tweeted on the subject and got some backlash, she protected her tweets. Some are calling for a boycott of Hobby Lobby over her complaint.

She notified Hobby Lobby and told them she wanted the complaint to go to corporate.

“@HobbyLobby I’d love to know why on earth you think it’s OK to sell merchandise that blatantly glorifies and encourages gun violence.
I echoed my disgust to the manger [sic]on duty who agreed to elevate my concern to your corporate office.
It’s 2019. Let’s do better.” Leslie Ruffing

Not only did she tweet her displeasure, but she also claimed that she was “frightened” of the gun culture.

“We’re scared to go church, to the movies, to concerts, scared to send our children to schools. Those who contribute to this dangerous gun culture should be held accountable.” Leslie Ruffing

She wants us all held accountable because the “gun culture” is “dangerous.” The signs are well known as jokes – and unless she’s only 2 years old, they have been around for decades. She declared that those kind of signs have killed people. (Seriously).

“This type of ‘shoot first, ask questions later’ mentality is incredibly dangerous to our society and leads to innocent people dying. I’d like to know how they can justify putting profits over people at a time in our country where we are experiencing more mass shootings than days this year.” Leslie Ruffing

We recently wrote about the flawed research of anti-gunners. This is a huge example of exactly that. What I would like to know is why she went to Hobby Lobby in the first place – most leftists wouldn’t be caught dead in that store because of its owner.

Personally, I believe this was a setup. What she is trying to say is that law-abiding gun owners are “dangerous.” If 150 million or more people were really that dangerous, they’d know about it. If she wants to complain about something “glorifying murder,” she should listen to rap music.

First off, I seriously doubt she goes to church in the first place. But if she lets the media run her life in this way it’s no wonder she has no sense of humor.

But think about this: Hobby Lobby is WELL KNOWN to be a business owned by Christian David Green. Much like the furor the left has cooked up against Chick-Fil-A, this could very well be a concerted effort to cause harm to the business.

So no, I don’t believe her one little bit. The left is heavy into trying to destroy  businesses, innocent people, and anyone else they determine doesn’t agree with their agenda.
