Texas Gun Store Owner, Jeremy Alcede, Supports Gun Control Legislation On Recent Radio Interview

August 6, 2012 9:26 pm 2 comments

Jeremy Alcede, owner of Tactical Firearms of Katy Texas, was recently interviewed by Houston’s KTRH radio host Matt Patrick regarding the topic of gun control legislation and ammo sales. Now that President Obama has expressed his interest in pursuing the ban of online ammo sales, this was the topic of conversation on the show.

Mr. Alcede said that he would like to give the Democrats this gun control law and hope that they would “be happy and go away” afterward.

Uncharacteristic of most gun store owners, Mr. Alcede shows a naive view of the progressive anti-gun movement. Banning online ammo sales after the Colorado Batman movie murders is like banning Exxon gas stations after a drunk driver kills someone with his car. It does absolutely NOTHING to make people safer, it’s only brought up to advance their attack on the second amendment and the freedoms that law abiding citizens enjoy in this country.

The process of buying ammunition online is identical with the process of buying ammo in a store. In the state of Texas a consumer must be over the age of 21 to purchase handgun ammo, and over the age of 18 to buy rifle and shotgun ammo. An ID is presented at the point of sale to confirm this. When ordering ammo online, the process is the same – You confirm your age when you checkout online, and then the delivery person checks ID and gets your signature when the ammunition is delivered to your home. There are no mystery loopholes in this process, and there is no reason to ban online ammo sales and put countless companies out of business.

Gun control advocates know that they can’t wipe out all of your second amendment rights at once, so they choose to target certain items that they can vilify, such as online ammo sales and so-called “assault rifles”, to the point that even gun rights supporters are willing to say “OK, we’ll let you have your ban so that you’ll be happy and leave us alone” – but this process never ends. Your right to keep and bear arms has now been infringed, and they move on to the next type of gun or ammunition and chip away at it until it’s gone… and so on, and so on.

Listen to the interview below:

After hearing these shocking words, many gun rights supporters expressed their outrage with Mr. Alcede. Their company website and Facebook pages showed statements from Mr. Alcede backtracking on his original statements.

My opinion on the online sales ban was clearly made out of being uneducated in the way that laws are passed. I honestly did not see an issue with banning online sales of ammo. I have never purchased ammo online, even before I opened this store 2 years ago, so I really didn’t think stopping online sales would be a big deal. I said “if you give them an inch, they will take a mile” and I truly did not believe that this was giving them anything. The phone calls and emails that I have received have told me a completely different story. The outraged citizens that heard my radio interview and took the time to call or email to voice their opinion, also took the time to talk to me, to explain to me where I am missing the point. I had no idea how passing something into law works and how allowing online sales to be banned opens the door for that law to be amended to change the type of ammo, or the amount, or caliber… the list goes on and on.

This story clearly shows that there are weak links in the pro-gun rights movement and in the coming weeks I will be publishing a series of articles exposing the lies and tactics of the people that are trying to destroy our second amendment rights on a daily basis.

  • I hope this guy gets his head in the game. We have to be united against anti-gun rights groups at all times. We can’t have a gun store owner against the online ammo stores….we can’t have hunters against sport shooters….we can’t have Jim Zumbo saying that no one needs AR rifles. Mr Alcede may lose some business over this.

  • Just because HE doesn’t buy ammunition online he thinks it’s not a big deal? He was obviously completely out of touch with reality and he was “schooled” by people who are aware. His support for banning online sales of ammunition to appease the gun grabbers is tantamount to letting the camel get its nose under the tent. They will NOT go away or be satisfied by just halting ammunition sales and his original thinking of that shows he’s naive when it comes TO the gun grabbers’ mentality.

    Trump Wins! Harris County Republicans Suffer Biggest Loss in History of the HCRP

    Last night’s presidential results were historic. For the first time in decades, Republicans will have a uniquely consolidated power base, controlling the White House, Senate, and House, as well as a majority of governorships. As a result, we should be able to appoint conservative justices, eliminate Obamacare, get rid of the Johnson Amendment (which censures the church), cut the national debt, open up the energy markets, protect religious liberties, and so much more. As my friends at AFA stated, “We were about to go over the cliff. The knockout punch was about to be delivered to the America that our Founding Fathers handed to us.

    Now It Is Your Time And Your Turn!

    Now it is your time! Do you ever see destructive things going on around you and wish you had the ability and opportunity to stop them? Like when you hear the occurrence of some tragedy, do you ever wish that you could have been in the right place at the right time, to prevent it?

    On Tuesday, November 3rd, you have an opportunity to do just that. If you live in the city of Houston, you will have the opportunity to vote NO to Proposition One, the “bathroom” or H.E.R.O. ordinance.

    Contrary to the proponents of this ordinance, it has nothing to do with equal rights (which are already protected under federal and state law), but everything to do with promotion of sexual deviance in our society, in an effort for us to accept yet one more assault on our common sense and decency.

    You might feel similarly by reading the Republican Party platform and comparing it to the words and actions of so-called “Republicans”, from Harris County to Washington D.C.

    Support Lance Berkman Vote “No” on Proposition 1 Bathroom Ordinance

    Six time Major League Baseball All Star, Lance Berkman, recently took a bold principled stand in opposition to Houston Proposition 1 – The Bathroom Ordinance. The liberal left and LGBT community are attacking Lance Berkman for having the courage to stand on his principles. He needs our support.

    Lance Berkman is getting bashed in the sports media because he exerted his First Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech by recording a radio commercial, opposing Houston’s Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance. His commercial began airing this past Thursday. The Bathroom Ordinance would allow troubled men, who claim to be women, to enter women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.

    Houston City Council Is Legislating Immorality To Allow Boys Into The Girls Bathrooms and Showers

    For many years we have all heard from both the Right leaning Democrats and the Left leaning Republicans that we cannot “legislate morality”. While for now I will not address the stupidity of this I would like to make a few points for you to ponder.

    The City of Houston is trying to legislate morality, but in there their Godless hearts they will fist attempt to re-define “morality” before they legislate it so that it to include the sexually confused and the sexually perverted.

    When you go to vote during early voting and on November third, and hopefully you will vote, the first thing you will see is Proposition one, also known as the HERO or “bathroom” ordnance.
