I get it. I have a P238 which is a SAO pistol. It has an external safety.

Don't you know guns loaded with ammo bought after 10 pm are more likely to kill people than guns loaded with ammo bought during the day?

PA has so-called blue laws that restrict the sale of alcohol on Sundays to restaurants or other food service type businesses...in New Jersey it is illegal to purchase a car on Sundays. Many of these laws date back to the colonial days when Sunday was viewed as a day of rest and worship, not of business.

When I used to live in IL you could buy on Sunday as long as it was after Noon. So when I moved to Indiana I was at the grocery store with my booze and the cashier tells me I can't buy it so I politely explained that it was after 12:00 pm. I had no idea that you couldn't buy on Sunday. That is so silly.

The booze thing or ammo? At my old walmart the time limit was due to the lack of staff "authorized " to sell ammo.

That's right, ZG. You can't buy alcohol on Sundays from 0600 to 1200 here in Illinois.
