‘Smart Gun’ Dealers Intimidated By Gun Nuts’ Threats
Across the country, those hoping to sell “smart guns” are finding it is too much for 2nd Amendment fanatics to take.
Andy Raymond, the co-owner of Engage Armament, is among many gun dealers who have been repeatedly threatened for wanting to sell the weapons:
At another point, Raymond picked up the phone and said, “Hi, this is Andy. How can I help you?” The caller said, “You’re the guys selling the smart gun?” Raymond tried to reason with him. But the caller said, “You’re gonna get what’s coming to you, (expletive).”
Raymond took that as a death threat. Even his dog, Brutus, did not escape the vitriol.
Raymond was clearly shaken, and late Thursday night, sitting at a table with a bottle of liquor, surrounded by assault rifles and puffing on a cigarette, Raymond recorded a video later posted to Facebook in which he vowed not sell the gun.
