Clyde's Sports Shop Targeted By Anti-Gun Group

Clyde's Sports Shop in Lansdowne was the latest locally owned business to be targeted by the anti-gun bigots. We applauded Clyde's for standing up to their threats and refusing to sign their Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership Agreement.

As a result of Clyde's resolve to not give in to their threats, the anti-gun lobby, hiding behind the screen of concerned religious leaders, had previously scheduled a protest of the shop on November 21st. Due to pressure from our community as well as a large number of ministers in the Western Baltimore County neighborhood who stood with the shop, the protesters bailed out and Clyde continued with his customer appreciation day.

The group has renewed their efforts to target this lawfully operated business and have rescheduled their protest for next Saturday, December 11, from 3-5pm.

Clyde's has scheduled another customer appreciation day from 2-6 pm and we are inviting you to join us to support this longtime pillar of the firearms community that has done nothing to incur the harassment from this group of anti-gun bigots. We predict that this will be one of the best days of business ever for Clyde's and hope that you can come get some good deals.

Clyde's is located at 2307 Hammonds Ferry Road, Lansdowne, MD 21227. Because the parking is VERY tight in that area, you will need to park on Ridge Ave, just north of the shop, or Mine Bank Lane., just south of the shop.

VERY IMPORTANT:

This is a customer appreciation party and show of support for Clyde's. We are not there to create a "scene". As such, the following policies need to be followed for the day:

•The media will likely be out in force for this event.
•No banners, signs etc.
•No direct engagement of the protesters. They would love to have their stereotypes, bigotry and pre-conceived notions confirmed for them and the press by our actions.
•Leave the camo and excessively rhetorical t-shirts at home. The media will zoom in on the one person from our side that plays to their agenda and will conveniently ignore the other thousand gun owners wearing sweaters and khakis.

Let's make this a full turnout for the day and enjoy the hospitality of the good folks at Clyde's as well as stand up for one of the retailers who make it possible for you to exercise your Constitutional rights. A strong firearms community needs at its core a vibrant retail environment.

If you can purchase something then please do it helps Clyde's offset the cost of this event. He has fishing, hunting, shooting sports and other supplies.
