Gloucester ammo store’s sign criticized for its ‘ugly timing’ … The sign outside the Gloucester Supply Center has generated criticism of and support for the shop owner … When George Allen Jr. mounted a 15-square-foot sign that reads “WE SELL AMMO” outside of his shop here, just days after a mass shooting in an Orlando nightclub, he posted the bright yellow marquee not only to let customers know about a new product on his shelves but also to make a statement in support of the Second Amendment. “It’s a beautiful thing,” Allen said. “It’s the right to protect yourself.” – BostonGlobe
Early in July, after the Orlando shooting, an ammo supplier (see above) began advertising the ammunition he’d started selling.
“It’s a beautiful thing,” he stated, “… The right to protect yourself.”
Alan’s sentiments invoke “human action,” the idea that people ought to take action to deal with their own problems whenever possible. This is an example of local activism at work and part of a wave of such activism sweeping the US and causing havoc with elite interests.
