No Second-Rate Souvenirs For The Second Amendment

We recently visited the gift shop at the NRA National Firearms Museum, which claims to stock over 500 gun publications, more than any other store in the U.S., and, therefore, most likely, the world. It also has a wall of replica guns and paint ball weapons for sale, but these each cost in the multi-hundred-dollar range — much too pricey for the casual visitor.

Shot gun shell shot glasses.We asked the guy behind the cash register if he could point out the most popular item in the store. He didn’t know for sure, but he knew that the $6.95 shot glasses that looks like shotgun shells are popular, as are the $14.95 shotgun shell salt and pepper shaker set. “People want something to remember a place by,” he told us.

Whiskey and kitchen table seasonings are like ammunition for the digestive system, so we think we see the connection.
