To all holders of Federal Firearms Licenses:
Stop talking to the press.
I’m not kidding either; because despite your best intentions, there is a pretty good chance that you’ll be taken completely out of context and made to sound like you’re supporting gun control or something like that.
Not only is that detrimental to your business, but it’s bad for the sport in general. So unless you’re really well spoken and used to doing business with the media (and thusly are aware of their nefarious trickery) then just say “no comment”.
Because they will ask you about private sales, or if there are flaws in NICS, or assault weapons; and then if you answer truthfully and honestly, it will be reported in the papers/tv as “Gun shop owner supports private citizens selling Uzis out of cars” or something idiotic like that.
