Retail "Turkey" award

I'm casting my vote for Gander Mtn. to receive the retail turkey of the year award.  Not only did they decide to open all day on Thanksgiving, they also had a .22 that loos a lot like an assault rife as their lead sales item. Could be a great gift selection for Rambo Junior...

Yes, it is a free country, and this is all perfectly legal, but that certainly doesn't make it laudable.

In some ways this epitomizes American free market values, which in order to function well need to be tempered with responsibility and self-restraint.
