'America's Largest' Gun Shop: Stop 'Whining To Other Gun Owners' And Take Action

Hyatt Gun Shop in Charlotte, N.C, which calls itself  "America's largest independently owned gun store," is urging gun rights advocates to "take action today" and push back against gun control measures before people "give away" their rights.

A Washington Examiner column reporting the call to action says, "Hyatt has turned part of its retail webpage over to the plea for action."

The post on the Hyatt website calls supporters of the 2nd Amendment stop complaining and take action by contacting their members of Congress before any more measures are taken:

"Whining to other gun owners and giving up on dialogue with your representatives in Congress is how you GIVE AWAY your gun rights! Remember to contact your representative and senator TODAY and keep contacting them. We cannot stress this enough!"

Owner Larry Hyatt told the Examiner: "People are outraged. They hate the government. I don't think we've seen this much divisiveness since the Civil War."

Yesterday, President Obama used the "weight" of his office and took 23 immediate executive actions on gun violence. For a full list of these actions, click here.
