Ha, our most "respected" local gun shop, Grady's Great Outdoors, is known around town as "Greedy's Great Outdoors" because if you go in to buy a gun and aren't wearing a suit and tie or look like you have billions to spend, you're probably gonna have to use a gun to get some help. Our Ace Hardware that sells guns is a bunch of old fogies that hate anyone under the age of 40. The big retailers like Academy or Dicks, they're all just brain dead.
To the OP:
Wait till you run in to a cop while carrying. To answer your question, no gun shops don't hate young people...when it comes to guns, EVERYONE hates young people. Just as black people often use the reference DWB (driving while black), I think I'm gonna start referring to myself as CWY (carrying while young).
