Boycott Jewel? Huh?

Heard on NPR about a gun club boycotting Jewel for donating money for Chicago’s gun buyback program.

What is this guy smoking? The aims are orthogonal. He wants to train new responsible gun owners. The police dept wants to get them away from owners who suspect they might NOT be responsible, and that might just need a push to get rid of them.

I can think of a lot of reasons to boycott Jewel — their stores are lousy, for example –  why didn’t we get a Dominick’s in Woodstock instead of Wal-Mart? — but their support of the gun buyback program is not one of them.
