And predictably (and like clockwork) the local media is on the case....

Newington gun store sparks controversy with flyer mocking undocumented immigrants
https://www.wtnh.com/news/connecticut/hartford/newington-gun-store-sparks-controversy-with-flyer-mocking-undocumented-immigrants/1773998771 (https://www.wtnh.com/news/connecticut/hartford/newington-gun-store-sparks-controversy-with-flyer-mocking-undocumented-immigrants/1773998771)

NEWINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) - At Hoffman's Gun Center in Newington, they proudly proclaim "guns for the good guys." But a controversial flyer posted to the store's Facebook page has the business facing public backlash.

The flyer reads, "Free Guns for CT. Illegals... so they can protect their family on their perilous journey to and from the border and to keep thieves away from their food stamps and all the other freebies they so richly deserve." It also features a razor wire-topped border wall with an image of President Trump standing guard.

"Why post that?" wondered Jesus Morales Sanchez of immigrant rights advocacy group Unidad Latina en Accion. He called it very hurtful.

"I mean, I simply thought it was ridiculous. Mocking that experience, mocking that pain, mocking that hurt, all that trauma, it's beyond unacceptable and it's appalling," he explained.

We tried to get an explanation from Hoffman's. Instead, we were told to leave. Meanwhile, the flyer, now deleted, is still causing drama around town.

"You shouldn't even put it up," said Damion Kelly of Hartford. "You should just never put it up."

"I think it's very bad, offensive for everybody, even for me, and I'm a United States citizen," Puerto Rico native Pedro Rodriguez said.

"I feel like it's racist," Marielis Laboy of Newington told us.

News 8's Mario Boone asked Morales Sanchez if he has a direct message to Hoffman's for posting the flyer.

"If you got nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all," he said.

We should note it doesn't appear the gun store ever actually gave away free guns to any undocumented immigrants.

State Senator Matt Lesser (D-Middletown) has called for the business to apologize.

The comment section for most if not all stories on WTNH have been closed for a while now. Most comments tended not to be nice to WTNH or Democrats.  ;D

Good for throwing them out.

Bad if Hoffman's apologizes.

Most businesses need to get every last customer they can and not risk a social media blow-up that will leave a black mark. Hoffman’s has had more business than they can handle for years with an extremely dedicated customer socio-political affiliation. This will only get more people in the store and free advertising on TV. Not a bad move, definitely calculated to capitalize on reactionary outage.

And they use their best weapon- their parking lot.
Protestors will give up once they can’t park within 50 feet of the door.

I may not be a Hoffman’s customer, but I commend their willingness to flip-off the media and light-up the political correctness outage.

* Edit, actually am a past hoffman’s customer if you count 1990 when I mowed lawns all summer at age 13, made $300, Dad took me to Hoffman’s when it was in the red barn building up the road more, picked out my first Ruger 77/22 stainless with Zytel. Still have it in the safe.

No way they didn't know this was going to piss off the usual suspects/propaganda organs. This was calculated to do exactly what it accomplished. Get free advertising.

Worked for me.  Just called them up to say how much I liked it, and that I would be up to shop for a new gun!

Every time I hear Lesser getting interviewed he comes across as a whiny little b*tch. I guess that sells in Middletown and the rest of his district.

Yeah WTNH doesn't like comments on their website. 

There are tons of pro Hoffman's comments under the story on their faceshit page.  Lots of "I'm gonna buy a gun from Hoffman's" etc.

Never liked that store. I am glad to see they treated the press the same way they treat potential customers.

I laughed and thought it was funny.

I've been in there three times. One time it was ridiculously busy, I was unsurprisingly ignored. The other two times they went out of their way to bother me. In my experience they aren't any better or worse than any other retail outlet of comparable size.

May as well, they have already doubled down by kicking the SJW crew that went  to question them out.

Good news for those illegals who want to visit Hoffmans.  ;D

Rep. Matt Gaetz

Democrats in the Judiciary Committee just voted against notifying ICE when an illegal alien fails a background check to buy a gun. They hate ICE so much that they'd keep ICE in the dark when illegals try to get guns!

Wow, that is stunning. I’m not being sarcastic. That’s flat-out negligence and abetting a criminal. It’s an amendment to a House Bill, doesn’t mean law yet. Make sure the media latches onto it and the entire bill will be DOA.
